In 2014 Les Claypool and his band Primus toured extensively with The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, featuring lead singer Sean Lennon, the pair kept in touch afterwards. Knowing that Primus would take a year off, they started working on an old-school, psychadelic and progressive rock record and over the course of six short weeks they wrote and recorded ten songs, both artists sharing vocal and instrumental responsibilities, beyond their core abilities of bass and guitar.
The successful formula was repeated in 2017, with an EP of cover songs from Pink Floyd, The Who, and King Crimson, and again in 2019 with South of Reality.
"Blood and Rockets: Movement I, Saga of Jack Parsons" recalls the fate of the late rocket scientist and inventor, who later became the founder of JP Laboratories, and eventually persecuted for his occult worship.
