This awesome vintage tee is for the rock n roll music group Colonel Les Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, or The Les Claypool Frog Brigade for short. Led by Primus' bassist Les Claypool, the Frog Brigade had a rotating cast of musicians including drummer Jay Lane, saxophonist Skerik, and guitarist Warren Haynes. This t-shirt celebrates the group's only studio album, Purple Onion, which was released in 2002. Prior to their studio album, they released two live albums called Live Frogs Sets 1 and 2, the latter being a recorded, complete performance of Pink Floyd's album Animals.
Purple Onion received positive reviews from critics who praised Claypool for staying true to his quirky sound with this new musical venture. Like much of Claypool's music, the tracks on Purple Onion were bass-heavy and a little weird, being described by one critic as being like "the inside of a fun house mirror." The album included the tracks "Whamola," "Barrington Hall," and "Buzzards of Green Hill." "Barrington Hall" was named for a student dorm at UC Berkley that was known as being a hub for counterculture.
Fits like a modern oversized unisex adult extra large. Several small holes on the front, see pics.
