How do you fol­low an al­bum that re-imag­ines the sound­track to Willy Wonka & the Cho­co­late Fac­tory? If you’re Primus, you make The De­sat­u­rat­ing Seven, based on a chil­dren’s book that tells the story of seven gob­lins de­ter­mined to re­move all the colour from the world. It’s re­leased via ATO on Septem­ber 29.

“Many years ago when my chil­dren were lit­tle ki­dlets scur­ry­ing around the place wreak­ing havoc and what­not, my wife turned them on to a book called The Rain­bow Gob­lins by Ul De Rico,” says Primus main­man Les Clay­pool. “The dark im­agery and beauty of the art struck me im­me­di­ately and I thought,‘This would make good fod­der for a piece of mu­sic.’”

It’s not the first time De Rico’s book has been used for in­spi­ra­tion: in 1981 Masayoshi Takanaka (for­mer gui­tarist with Ja­panese psych/ prog act Flied Egg) re­leased a jazz rock al­bum based on the same book.
