Album Review

To the casual listener, Sausage — whose three members formed the original lineup of Primus — won't sound noticeably different from Les Claypool's main gig. After all, his trademark slap-bass style and cartoonish vocals still command center stage here. But fans will notice the group's more accessible sound right away. Drummer Jay Lane's style is much less extravagent than Tim "Herb" Alexander's, focusing more on holding down a solid groove than showcasing his technical prowess, while guitarist Todd Huth's linear, melodic approach is a universe away from Larry LaLonde's mind-blowing brand of textural noise. Huth's bluesy style helps ground the band's sound in surprising ways, making Sausage a tighter, more focused groove machine. But without the instrumental virtuosity, strange time signatures, and almost constant left-field changes, some fans may find Riddles Are Abound Tonight a bit limited in scope. Still, it manages to rattle the ol' gourd quite nicely.

Genius again

Les Claypool is just an amazing player. Anyone who is a fan of Primus should check this album out, it doesn't disappoint.

The best.

I know Les Claypool, I have all of his stuff, and I have to say that Sausage is psychadelic-grunge-jam awesomeness. I honestly think that some of Sausage's songs are the best Claypool songs out there...DEF worth the download!

An Amazingly Odd Delight To The Ears

In this Album, Les manages to stay his course while surrounding himself with musicians who fit around his style yet take it to a completely different place and even genre than his original band "Primus." What Todd Huth does on the guitar is an amazing comodity to the band and accents and maximizes what Les is doing on the Bass so well, and his lines are amazing! Plus He's my uncle so i want to give him props, but that does not mean that what i said was bias in any way! He still does an amazing job!


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s

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...
