Primus mainman Les Claypool, his Claypool Lennon Delirium band mate Sean Lennon and the Fearless Flying Frog Brigade have released a live video of the band performing Pink Floyd's Pigs.

Claypool is on the road with Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, performing at set in which they perform all of Pink Floyd's Animals. The new pro-shot footage comes from the band's show at The Mission Ballroom in Denver, CO.

Also appearing alongside Claypool is Harry Waters, Roger Waters' son.

"I’ve known Harry throughout the years," explains Claypool. "He was a Primus fan back in the day. He invited us out to some shows with his dad. He’s a great guy, and he might know some of the songs from Animals [laughs]. I’m anxious to delve more into the creative world with him."

Speaking of his shift from 90s alt-rock pioneer into a far more progressive world with his more recent musical activity, Claypool jokes, “Let’s put it this way… I think, with Primus and without, I’ve played every music festival in the last ten years, except Lilith Fair. You could say I’m the guy who doesn’t fit in anywhere, but a little bit everywhere.”

Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade are back out on the road in the US this October. Full dates below.
