lol, they're not for everyone. what two tracks did you play? I haven't actually listened to them in many years, but just binged the first 3 records in response to the desert sessions news. while it's TRUE that they probably aren't responsible for any lost contributions to the great american songbook, I was surprised to find that I enjoyed a great deal of it.

loving the dedication to the desert sessions (i only have volume 9/10).

the two tracks were:

- jerry was a race car driver
- to defy the laws of tradition

the worst aspects of Zappa and the Red Hot Chili Peppers distilled to their sickly essence

I haven't listened to Primus in literal decades, but if I was forced to dj two Primus tracks, they would probably be My Name is Mud and Shake Hands with Beef, those are non-noodly and have a groove.

I liked Frizzle Fry and Sailing the Seas of Cheese at the time. They were fun live back then, too. I saw them at least four times between 1990 and 1992 — once co-headlining with Tad, once opening for Fishbone, once opening for co-headliners Public Enemy and Anthrax, and once opening for Jane's Addiction and the Pixies.

Yeah, I'm fine with my memories of Frizzle Fry and Cheese, they're fine cartoon weirdo rock. I saw them with Fishbone and U2 and probably once or twice on their own (though never on purpose after those two albums).
