I guess you haven't been keeping up with the times? Those are songs off their upcoming album Green Naugahyde due this September.

Yeah, I just found that out now on Wikipedia. How is the new stuff?

I haven't actually heard a lot of the new songs except for The Last Salmon Man, Jilly's On Smack, and Green Ranger. But I think that Jilly's On Smack is incredible! Can't wait to hear professional quality studio version of that song.

I want to get into this band but every time I try they just don't do anything for me.

Something funny I just noticed about Primus, it seems like on every tour for an album the album before that album has become hated and ignored live. When I saw them tour for the Brown Album I can't remember them playing anything from Tales From the Punchbowl (they refused to play Winnona at that times even). Then later when touring for Anti-Pop Les Claypool was quoted as saying, "who wants to hear something from the Brown Album...me neither" and that was it. I don't think they played anything. That album didn't fit in with the sound they were going with at the time anyway. But they were playing stuff from Tales... again. Now here we are on what could be considered the beginning of the touring for Green Naugahyde and nothing from Anti-Pop, at least at the two shows posted here the last few days. But Brown Album stuff has worked it's way back into the set-list.

I can agree with them though for not playing anything from Anti-Pop.

They still refuse to play Wynona's Big Brown Beaver. I mean at least since the start of the 2010 tour. And they have played one song off Antipop this tour which was Coattails Of A Dead Man. But yeah overall that's a pretty interesting concept you bring up.

I'd say Coattails of a Deadman was the only song I liked off Antipop, so that's cool.

Anti-Pop is Les's least favorite album and lets be honest its not that great. I just saw them in Copenhagen and they were fantastic.

This was only my first Primus show but I thought ALL the new songs sounded really good live and i loved the setlist it was balanced really well.

Go see PRIMUS!

I don't know, maybe they are just sick of playing it. I mean it is one of their biggest hits. I think it's just the Primus equivalent of Radiohead's Creep and Iron Maiden's Run To The Hills. But I do know Primus actually brough Beaver back for at least the 2006 and 2008 tours though.
