Electric Apricot…What the Hell

Update: Electric Apricot Slideshow (thanks Tony)

I guess I thought that Ace Cowboy might have even been joking about this until you follow the link right to Les Claypool himself. But this is just getting weird…

If you read the following thread on Phantasy Phish, you’ll begin to understand that this really doesn’t make sense. Can someone please explain Electric Apricot? Is it a joke? Does it rock? Anyone got photos of the lineup? Anyone have a link to download?

Update: from the PT Boards

It’s not buckethead, the official lineup was posted after I leaked this mis-information I was given by one of the guys that works for Les. Everybody was in costume so there was rumors running rampant that night. This band has been put together for a “spinal tap” like documentary on Jam Bands, but the music they are playing is simple incredible!

Here is the official lineup again…

Les Claypool (Primus) – Drums
Bryan Kehoe (Flying Frog Brigade) – Guitar
Bob C Cock aka Adam Gates aka The Filthy Ape (Holy Mackerel) – Bass
Jonathan Korty (Vinyl) – Keys

And the set list which clocked in over 2 hours long.

setlist:
burning man
sugar train
future
unkle pete
backroads
YOG

    So is this a Spinal Tap kind of thing or are these guys for real?

    That’s what I’m trying to figure out as well…

    On the PT Boards, the discussion never actually reached the understanding of what this band was, is, might, or could possibly accomplish. Was this a joke or not, Les?

    It’s funny to think about that. Les Claypool playing a small joke on the jamband scene. I love it. It’s probably not true; he’s smart enough to know exactly how to get people talking about it.
