Third Man Records announces Primus Vault Package

Package includes six colored 7-inch records

Third Man Records has announced Primus: The Revenant Juke — A Collection of Fables and Farce will be featured as Vault Package #53. The set introduces the classic heavy band into the 7-inch vinyl world after 30 years. The package will feature six colored 7-inch records with individual sleeve artwork, all housed in a custom telescoping box.

Fans have until July 31st at midnight CT to sign up to receive the package.

Disc one features “John the Fisherman” and “Too Many Puppies” from Primus’ debut album Frizzle Fry while disc two showcases the inimitable “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver” and “Tommy The Cat” from 1991’s Sailing The Seas Of Cheese. Disc three is truly a corker with the breakout classic “My Name Is Mud” ably paired with the “Mr. Krinkle” both off of Pork Soda from 1993. The band’s biggest “hit” anchors disc four where “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver” sits next to “Southbound Pachyderm”, each originally released on the 1995 album Tales From The Punch Bowl. “Shake Hands With Beef” and “Over The Falls” make up disc five and emanate from The Brown Album which the band released in 1998. And 1999’s The Antipop gives us both “The Antipop” and “Coattails Of A Dead Man” to round it all out on disc six.

The iconoclastic cover image and the striking individual sleeve artwork are all newly created by the esteemed Adam Gates, a long-time associate of Primus who has collaborated with them across multiple artistic disciplines and whose day job finds him as a creative director at Pixar Animation Studios.

Housed in a slick, telescoping box and with the discs pressed on ducky yellow, bitter lime, fermented orange, soft purple, bruised peach and generic turquoise, the entire package is a fitting testament to one of the few truly great bands from the era that is still making relevant music and captivating fans as strongly as it has from the beginning.
