CLEARWATER - Primus (Les Claypool on bass and vocals, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander) hits the road in tour in support of their fall release Primus and the Chocolate Factory and the band will make a stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 8 p.m.

In the summer of 1971, Primus guitarist Les Claypool was a couple months shy of his 8th birthday when David L. Wolper’s Willa Wonka and the Chocolate Factory debuted in movie theaters, based on the Roald Dahl book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Throughout different stages of Claypool’s life he has come back to the movie, repeatedly thoughout different stages of his life, taking something different from it each time.

So it seemed equal parts genius and obvious when Claypool decided to throw a Willy Wonka-themed Primus show on New Year’s Eve last year.  During the second set, Primus performed the soundtrack in its entirety.
