Of Fungi And Foe Four Foot Shack

How "deconstructed" can a group get? How about just one vocal, one bass, one guitar, and a basic beat supplied by stomping on a mini-tambourine-doohickey? That's exactly what everyone's favorite storyteller/narrator, Les Claypool, is incorporating in his new band, Duo de Twang. While Les is still pulling double duty with the Primus lads, he has also found the time to unite with his old buddy, Bryan Kehoe, who fans will recognize from several past Claypool projects, and also as one of the main actors from Les' hilarious jam band mockumentary, 'Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo.' But unlike Primus, DDT focuses more on the Americana/rootsy side of things - as heard throughout the band's debut recording Four Foot Shack, to be released via ATO Records on February 4th.

"Live Summer 2006 -
A Fan's Perspective"

"Fancy" is Les' first live concert DVD and shows his latest band at its peak performance. With long time associates Skerik on sax and Mike Dillon on vibes, marimba and percussion (both of Garage a Trois and Critters' Buggin), the band is rounded out by drummer Paulo Baldi and multi-instrumentalist Gabby La La.

"Fancy" was assembled using footage shot by a small group of devoted fans over the course of several performances. The audio is a combination of board tapes blended with audience or "tapers" recordings to give the piece the true "fan's perspective."

The 2006 tour was in support of Claypool's then current cd release Of Whales and Woe, and thus material from this album is favored here. Other songs are drawn from 2002's Purple Onion and the 1996 Interscope release Les Claypool and the Holy Mackerel: Highball With the Devil. Released May 29, 2007.
