Watch! Primus – Lee Van Cleef

There is a saying: when the cat’s away, the mice shall play. Well, in this case, while the cat named Pete is hiding in Thom Yorke’s bushes on holiday, this mouse is going to play you folks some Primus. The band is known mostly for the amazing bass work of Les Claypool. Primus’ original and diverse sound is definitely worth checking out. They released the album Green Naugahyde last fall, their first in 12 years. Recently, a video for the song Lee Van Cleef was created.

For those who don’t know, Lee Van Cleef was an American film actor whose most famous roles, arguably, came in the mid-1960’s films ‘For a Few Dollars More’ and ‘The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly’. In those films, called ‘spaghetti westerns’ (because they were filmed at Chef Boyardee’s house in Italy), Van Cleef played the bad guy opposite Clint Eastwood’s iconic ‘Man With No Name’ character.

In this animated video, we see a zombie version of Van Cleef come back to life and mosey on in to an old western town to seek revenge on Clint’s famous character. The song is about cheering for the bad guy and as you will see, Clint should have known bullets only work on the living.
