  • Lyrics
  • This song was interrupted during a late '90s show when an audience member spit on lead singer Les Claypool from the mosh pit. The humorous clip of Claypool's reaction was widely distributed on the net in the days before YouTube. Said Claypool: "I can't play 'Frizzle Fry' now because I can't remember where the hell we were, which is a shame because I enjoy playing that song. If anybody sees who did that, please sodomize him for me." (here's the clip)
  • Frizzle Fry was Primus' first studio album. They had been playing around San Francisco for a few years and developed a big following before they recorded it.
  • A year before this album came out, Primus released a live album called Suck On This that was recorded at a club. This song is featured on that album as well.
