Another alternative classic originally released in 1991, available on vinyl for the first time since it's initial release. The third album from Les Claypool & Co., and first for a major label, is a twisted mix of progressive rock, funk and punk, with a taste for Frank Zappa's humor and Captain Beefheart's guttural growl. One of the few bands to have the bass as the prominent instrument, with Claypool alternating from funky slaps to throbbing power chords to heavy, heavy solos, the guitar providing almost dissonant texturing beneath the bass' shredding. Featuring the MTV hit "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver," SAILING THE SEAS OF CHEESE is a alternative classic that stands up next to, and surpasses creatively, the best work of folks like Jane's Addiction and Nirvana.
