Throwing mud is a sign of small and insignificant genitalia.
- Les Claypool at Woodstock '94

Band Name Origins:

  • In an interview with Herb, he says that the name changed from Primate because there was another band already called "The Primates". To avoid legal retribution, Les pulled out a dictionary and found a close alternate. Primus means "the primary one". It is also the name of a Russian stove (and a popular stove company in parts of the world), an insurance company, a camping equipment company, an international telecommunications company, a Belgian beer brewed in Haacht, and an Internet Service Provider. Primus means "top of the class" in Dutch and German, and "I feel great" in Swedish. This was taken from the Cheesy Homepage. Submitted by: EZCHEEZ
