Les Claypool To Embark On 2009 Tour

HOLLYWOOD, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Les Claypool will embark on the “The Oddity Faire: A Mutated Mini Fest” tour in North America starting March 4. This tour is in support of yet another work of art, Of Fungi And Foe dropping March 17, 2009 on Prawn Song Records.

"Of Fungi And Foe" is the expansion of material Claypool has recorded over the past few years for the video game “Mushroom Men” and the motion picture “Pig Hunt”. Being inspired by these 2 projects Claypool decided to keep creating and turn it into an album. The song Mushroom Men on this release is a more in depth version of the theme song from the video game. Additionally a jam session with Gogol Bordello’s charismatic front-man Eugene Hutz turned into the track “Bite Out Of Life”. The band is comprised of Les Claypool on bass/vocals, Paulo Baldi on Drums (Cake), Mike Dillon on Percussion (Ani Difranco), and Sam Bass on Cello (Deadweight).
