This sweet graphic tee is for the rock band Primus and their 1995 album Tales from the Punchbowl. The front features a graphic of the album cover while the back features the band's logo. Primus was founded by bassist Les Claypool in the 80s, but they wouldn't release their first studio album until 1990. The band would go on to record several successful rock albums and they were even responsible for writing the original theme song for the adult cartoon South Park. Primus has come to be known for their bass-heavy songs and quirky lyrics, which can mostly be attributed to Claypool, who serves as the principle songwriter for the band.
Tales from the Punchbowl was Primus's fourth studio album and it had a decidedly progressive rock sound to it. It was notably different than their previous release, Pork Soda, which was considered more of a funk metal album. Despite this, Tales From the Punch Bowl was just as commercially successful as Pork Soda which had been Primus' most successful album up to that point. The record peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200 and featured successful singles like "Southbound Pachyderm" and "Mrs. Blaileen." However, the album's crown jewel was Primus' most successful single to date, "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver," which was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance.
