The band comprises of Primus vocalist and bassist Les Claypool and Sean Lennon, with the follow-up to 2016’s Monolith Of Phobos titled South Of Reality.

Released on February 22nd of this year via ATO Records. Speaking about his partnership with Claypool, Lennon tells Rolling Stone: “We are great friends indeed, and I guess I’m not nervous in quite the same way as I was in the beginning, but I still make sure to do as much preparation as possible.

“Ideas always come quick for us, and I think that’s why we like working together. But playing with Les is like knowing you’re gonna be playing tennis with Rafael Nadal – it makes you wanna brush up on a few things before you get on the court.”

The video for “Blood & Rockets,” from The Claypool Lennon Delirium, taken from their second album release “South Of Reality” suddenly I am no longer offended by Claypool’s sophomoric sense of humor and no longer bored with Mr. Lennon. Quite the contrary! “South Of Reality” is a smart, exciting, well-played, and admittedly, somewhat out of control mix of Pepper-era Beatles, Barrett-era Floyd, and all the listenable bits from your favorite psych and prog records. It has more than a few kitchen sinks, but always keeps you engaged by never forgetting to toss in a great hook or melody with everything else. This one is consistently entertaining, something that becomes increasingly more difficult to say.
