Primus - Blame It On The Fish DVD Review

by Jeff K.

Blame It On The Fish is the 3rd DVD offering from musical powerhouse Primus. Released in conjunction with their retrospective, They Can't All Be Zingers, and distributed on their own Frizzle Fry imprint, Primus gives fans more of what they love; unbeatable live performances, and a unique behind-the-scenes look at a band, this time in the midst of their 2003 reunion tour. The footage here is well shot. Nowhere to be found is your standard run-of-the-mill 5 camera live show. Many of the DVD's live tracks are infused with multimedia footage and imagery, bound to mystify even the harshest critic. One of the highlights of the DVD, from a musician's perspective, is the intense focus on each member's playing. As someone who enjoys not just hearing a band, but watching how they do what they do, the live footage on this DVD is second to none, giving the viewer an up-close look at the magic that makes some of the most complex music in music today.

Another quirky addition to the DVD is the 30 minute futuristic documentary, showing a 102-year old Les Claypool, long since institutionalized, and reminiscing about the 'days back when'. Some will actually watch this entire 30-minute diatribe. I thought it a bit much.

The rest of the DVD weaves in and out between live footage, behind-the-scenes shots that are pretty standard on just about any 'live' DVD, and some interview clips with the band, dispersed throughout.

As with the cd, released in conjunction with this DVD, fans of the band will run out and snag this up. I'm not sure either of the offerings from Primus will garner 'new' fans, since they've been around and known for some time, but it's still good to see a band staying true to their roots and their style, regardless of the trends and popularity contest that seems to go on with much of music today. Primus stay who they are, and it is evident here.
