Electric Apricot is a spoof of jam bands centered around the band, Electric Apricot, in the style of "This Is Spinal Tap". The members of the band go by the assumed names, Steve Hampton Trouzdale on bass and vocals, Steve "Gordo" Gordon on guitar and vocals, Herschal Tambor Brillstien on keyboards and vocals, and Lapland "Lapdog" Miclovik on drums and vocals.

The first poster for Festeroo actually features five bands Les Claypool has played with. Oysterhead, Les Claypool's Frog Brigade, Sausage, The Holy Mackeral, and C2B3 (Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie's Brains). See more »
Les Claypool proves that he is not only an amazing musician, but also a great writer/storyteller/actor. Electric Apricot is a fun misadventure. Each character is unique and funny. The storyline flows well and can keep the the audience interested. Claypools character is a stereotypical percussionist who always seems to be over-prepared and is a perfectionist. The other members of the band are a great mix of jam band hippies and a Zen Buddhist. The zany fans and celebrity cameos (Matt Stone, Seth Green, Wavy Gravy, and many others)are a nice touch. Overall the film was fun and smart. Being a fan of Les Claypool, I find almost all of his work totally Awesome, and Electric Apricot is no exception.
