Les Claypool loves the Ferris Wheel

Posted by admin On March - 6 - 2008

We checked our first item off of our to-do list. We were front row for Golem. The six-piece band from New York plays Klezmer music and, as much as I hated the Klezmer my grandparents dragged me to growing up, they rock pretty hard. The back-up singer wore a purple puffy shirt. He looked like Jerry “I don’t wanna be a pirate” Seinfeld, but a lot darker. -z.t.

Les Claypool was good, but did not live up to our expectations. It’s hard to really rock when all you have on stage is bass, sax, xylophone and drums. Some grooves had the crowd going, but soggy socks and shoes had us heading to the media tent to hear the rest of the set. -a.s.

After our quick break, we came back to hear Les play Guitar Hero favorite “John The Fisherman,” and finish off a pretty unimpressive set. Seven minutes into a weak jam I asked Andy, “Would you ever even guess this was Les seven minutes into this song.” He replied, “I wouldn’t have listened this long for someone else. Luckily, Les was pretty funny before his last song.

He said the ferris wheel makes him “Fucking happy” and that we should all watch it, and not him, because if we “think happy ferris wheel thoughts, all will be right with the world.” Touche.
