Sausage is the original lineup of the California Bay Area group Primus. Like Primus, the group is led by bassist/vocalist Les Claypool, yet his playing doesn't dominate the band like it does in Primus. Instead, its more of a collective, with guitarist Todd Huth and drummer Jay Lane providing a solid groove, not fractured rhythms. Huth, Lane, and Claypool formed Primus in the late '80s, releasing a demo tape called Sausage. Claypool remained with Primus while Lane wound up in the hip-hop/jazz collective Alphabet Soup and the jazz group, the Charlie Hunter Trio; Huth became a member of Porch. In 1994, the group reunited under the name Sausage, releasing Riddles Are Abound Tonight, and went on a short tour.
