PrimusThe mighty Primus--bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry Lalonde and drummer Tim Alexander--return this fall with a formidable one-two-three punch. October 17 will bring twin releases: their first-ever retrospective CD They Can't All Be Zingers (Interscope/UMe) and a new DVD Blame It On The Fish (on their own Frizzle Fry Inc. imprint), subtitled "An Abstract Look at the 2003 Primus Tour De Fromage," their triumphant reunion trek.

The digitally remastered 16-selection They Can't All Be Zingers spans the band's career from 1990 to 2003, featuring all of its original Modern Rock hits--"Jerry Was A Race Car Driver," "My Name Is Mud" and the Grammy-nominated "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver"--plus fan favorites and a previously unreleased, extended version of "Shake Hands With Beef."

Blame It On The Fish is the third DVD release from Primus and follows "Hallucino-Genetics Live 2004". Years in the making, this DVD of the band's 2003 reunion tour—which was augmented by ambitious sets and innovative multi-media installations—contains live performance footage, interview segments, candid behind the scenes shots and intense visual imagery. In addition to 90 minutes of bonus material, the extras also include a 30-minute futuristic documentary about the band set in the year 2065 and interviews with the then-102-year-old bandleader Les Claypool.
