CL Sound Bites: Weezer Pinkerton tour? Smell like Sex Pistols, and a free Primus EP!

Les Claypool found time between his various musical projects and jam band mockumentaries to hit the road with Primus this summer. You can download a free Primus tour rehearsal EP at

Fugazi will soon post every concert they've ever played online for your listening pleasure. Guy Picciotto explains how massive this project is:

We are not that far away from being able to set up our own website where ultimately almost every show we ever played will be available for download. The infrastructure for this new website is currently being developed and the band continues to sift through and convert the footage from its enormous live archive. There will be an official announcement on later in the year with more details when things get closer to completion.

Crass reminds me of this smelly crust-punk who always wore their shirt in an evolutionary ethics class I took sophomore year. In a cozy room of about a dozen students, this guy had empty seats around him every day. Crass' plans to remaster their catalog won't help that kid's b.o., but their music might sound better. Although, remastered versions of shitty recordings usually just turn out loud and shitty.

Local H often peppers their live shows with strange, unironic covers (remember their version of Britney Spears' "Toxic"?). They'll continue that tradition with Local H's Awesome Mix Tape #1 EP on October 19th where they'll tackle Agent Orange, Concrete Blonde, and Pink Floyd among others.

Local H, "Toxic"


Johnny Rotten's butter commercial:


will reissue their once-underappreciated-but-now-beloved second album Pinkerton this fall. Guitarist Brian Bell is "praying [for] a Pinkerton tour," which would probably be the most well-received Weezer happening since, er, probably the Blue Album since no one appreciated Pinkerton at the time.

As for current music, Weezer has gone indie with Epitaph Records for their latest meme album Hurley due out September 14.

What does fabricated anarchy smell like? A French company released a Sex Pistols perfume and lists lemon, black pepper, prunes, and patchouli among the ingredients. Johnny Rotten justified his ridiculous Country Life butter spots saying they financed the upcoming Public Image Ltd activities, but this is just stupid.

You can see  Johnny Rotten's Country Life butter commercial after the jump. Plus, there's news about Fugazi, Crass, and Local H; and how to download a free Primus EP.
