Master bass player Les Claypool has teamed up with Sean Lennon to create The Claypool Lennon Delirium, and they will be bringing the rock show to the Varsity Theater on Thursday, April 25th They are out supporting their latest release South Of Reality.
Two worlds have collided, and what glorious and odd worlds they are. After Primus and The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger completed a successful summer tour, Les Claypool and Sean Lennon decided to combine their abstract talents into a project called The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Their efforts thus far have spawned the upcoming full-length release Monolith of Phobos that will be released on June 3rd via ATO Records.
“Sean is a musical mutant after my own heart,” said Claypool. “He definitely reflects his genetics–not just the sensibilities of his dad but also the abstract perspective and unique approach of his mother. It makes for a glorious freak stew.”In astronomical terms, the Monolith of Phobos is a large rock on Mars’s Phobos moon. As the phrase implies, this album is an old-school approach to a psychedelic space rock record. The Claypool Lennon Delirium will begin their Summer tour on June 4th and the touring band includes Les Claypool (bass, vocals), Sean Lennon (guitar, vocals), Mark “Money Mark” Ramos Nishita of the Beastie Boys (keyboards), and Paul Baldi of the Fungi Band (drums).
