Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Rhinoplasty is an EP by Primus, originally released August 11, 1998 by Interscope Records. The EP features covers of songs by artists such as Stanley Clarke, Metallica, and Jerry Reed. The live version of "Tommy the Cat" is performed with "The Awakening" in the middle. The original song was by The Reddings from their 1980 album The Awakening, and had previously been covered by Les Claypool and the Holy Mackerel on their album Highball with the Devil.

What could be more fun than a Primus album? How about an album of cover songs done Primus style? On RHINOPLASTY, Les and company attack a set of already fairly wacky songs and make them even wackier. Thus XTC's "Scissor Man" is full of Larry LaLonde's trademark disjointed guitar and on Metallica's "The Thing That Should Not Be," Les Claypool sounds like he's singing in a tin can.
Stanley Clarke's "Silly Putty" is a funky jazz-fusion workout that lets the group show off their considerable chops. The Police's "Behind My Camel," which was the oddest of the songs to begin with, is given the most faithful reading. Of course the CD wouldn't be complete without a few selections from Primus' own songbook. Live versions of "Tommy The Cat" and "Bob's Party Time Lounge" fit that bill. And believe it or not, Les Claypool actually sings and plays a normal bass line on a couple of tracks. Now that's wacky.

Primus: Les Claypool (vocals, bass); Larry LaLonde (guitar); Brain (drums).

Additional personnel: Irene Sazer (violin); DJ Disk (scratches); Adam Gates (background vocals).

Principally recorded at Prairie Sun Recording, Cotati, California.
