About Court In The Act.

No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it. Let me know if any links are broken, I'll remove the post to prevent future annoyance, and will attempt to re-upload the file.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

Primus - Frizzle Fry [1990]

Right, first post after Megaupload's execution.

"To Defy the Laws of Tradition" the name of the first track is oddly fitting to the band and while this album's eccentricities do not extend much beyond excellent bass work (Les Claypool is my favorite bass player by a mile) this album is a sign of things to come from Primus.

The drum and guitar work on this album is also worthy of note as Tim's drumming style gels very well with Les's quirky bass lines while Larry LaLonde (former Possessed guitarist) provides some riff-age and some noisy textural sounds (akin to a later Primus sound)

The music itself is very much Primus in its infancy and contains a larger grunge infulence then later Primus records but still is a bass oriented alternative rock album.

This is not my preferred Primus album for a good reason as sadly the writing still needs working on and has a distictive smell of "first album" which means it's unrefined and raw. (Persona 101: Surely this is a good thing?)

Best songs: Frizzle Fry, To Defy the Laws of Tradition

Worst songs: The Toys Go Winding Down, Too Many Puppies

Primus' sound is hard to describe without using the word "weird" which hopefully will explain the lack of sound description for those who have never heard them before.

Persona 101:  Edited due to cancerous grammar. Sorry if I've missed any.
