Great music, Great video!
27 June 2006 | by Elder_YautijaSee all my reviews

Primus has always been know for their weird, absurd videos. Many times we can see them in their videos while playing the songs, many others it's them who play the characters the song is built on. In this case the main characters are puppets (supposedly made of clay) who tell us the story of the encounter between this happy farm-boy with a shot for violin and the devil himself, who, armed with his own, diabolic violin, challenges the boy to create a better melody than his. While we watch the images of the stop-motion puppets (perfect in the lesser details), we can listen to the song, performed by Primus with their usual crazy touch and enhanced by a country-like, well suited violin arrangement. The video is now available on the double release "Animals should not try to act like people", collection of all of Primus videos, from the seminal album "Freezle fry" to the latter "Brown album", a must have which features the return of former drummer Tim Alexander playing with the band 5 new, prog-oriented songs.
