A dark, clever tale of two brothers, a fishing trip, misconceptions, drugs and murder, South of the Pumphouse skilfully combines classic motifs of epic struggle and intelligent layers of imagery, reminiscent of The Old Man and the Sea and the raw, tweaked perspective and hallucinogenic tutorial of a Hunter S. Thompson novel. Claypool is the bassist and frontman for the hit band Primus. He penned the theme song to South Park and has guested on albums by many other artists, including Jerry Cantrell and Tom Waits.
