Primus is an American rock band formed in 1984, currently composed of bassist/vocalist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry "Ler" LaLonde and drummer Jay Lane. Primus originally formed with Claypool and guitarist Todd Huth, later joined by Lane, though the latter two departed the band at the end of 1988 and were replaced by LaLonde and drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander. This lineup recorded Primus' debut release Suck on This, followed by four studio albums: Frizzle Fry, featuring "John the Fisherman"; Sailing the Seas of Cheese, featuring "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" and "Tommy the Cat"; Pork Soda featuring "My Name Is Mud"; and Tales from the Punchbowl, featuring their most commercially successful single, "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver". In 1996, Alexander left Primus and was replaced by Bryan "Brain" Mantia. This version of the band recorded the original theme song for "South Park" and went on to release two more albums, Brown Album and Antipop, before declaring a hiatus in 2000.
