Uh...Primus. I don't think I've heard the other ones.

I love Primus, but the Holy Mackeral is decent, but almost a bit light for me. I haven't heard any of the Oysterhead stuff. Is any of it available through traditional means in the States? However, the Sausage disc I have "Riddles are Abound Tonight" is very good. But I grew up on Misc. Debris, Frizzle Fry, and Sailing the Seas of Cheese.

I can't really vote since the only one I've heard is Oysterhead. But I like what I've heard so far. I'm going to try and pick up their album coming out tomorrow.

i like the oysterhead album a lot... of course, i am a huge anastasio fan, and a huge copeland fan... all started with primus though, and i still love them... i dug the holy mackrel disc a lot... all the flying frog brigade stuff i've heard is decent, but it doesn't touch a hair on primus' as$ as far as i'm concerned... though the floyd covers are VERY well done...

Dammit, I forgot about Sausage...

Anyway, I like Primus the best, followed by The Holy Mackerel, then Sausage...haven't heard much of FFFB or Oysterhead, but from what I hear Oysterhead is good....

Sausage is the only one of his projects that I like. Primus had it's moments, but that act got old real fast.

Still love their cover of "Making Plans for Nigel" though.

So far, I only like him when he backs Tom Waits - & even that I don't like him to do too often. But I haven't heard any of his newer projects.
