Two worlds have collided, and what glorious and odd worlds they are. After a successful summer tour pairing Primus with The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Les Claypool and Sean Lennon have decided to combine their abstract talents into a project called The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Their efforts thus far have spawned the full-length release called The Monolith of Phobos.
Sean Lennon (The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger) and Les Claypool (Primus) have formed the proggy psych supergroup the Claypool Lennon Delirium. The two recently recorded a Talkhouse Music Podcast live at Samsung 837 in New York City, where they discussed their new record, The Monolith Of Phobos, Les’ musical beginnings playing in Hells Angels bars, and the origin of Sean’s surname. Their conversation also covers Trump, Noel Fielding, Sean’s beliefs about body odors, how indie musicians will rule the planet and spirochetes. The Monolith Of Phobos came out June 3 on ATO Records, and the band is currently touring America.
