Band members:
¤   Les Claypool — bass guitar, vocals, tambourine
¤   Bryan Kehoe — guitar
Musical style:
¤   The band's inspirations include jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, country musicians Johnny Horton, Jerry Reed and Vernon Dalhart, and "hillbilly music from the '30s and '40s." The band's music features a simple guitar and bass arrangement with occasional use of banjo and mini-tambourine.
¤   Claypool described the duo as "my fuck-off vacation band." He also stated: "I'm getting a chance to bullshit with the audience. You've got two guys that have to hold down the rhythm and you can't get too terribly melodic except with the vocals or whatnot."
¤   Unlike Les Claypool’s work with Primus, his new project with old buddy Brian Kehoe, Duo de Twang, focuses more on the Americana/rootsy side of things – as is heard throughout the band’s debut recording Four Foot Shack, to be released via ATO Records on February 4th.
¤   “This record represents what I personally listen to these days,” Claypool told Rolling Stone. “Guys like Johnny Horton, Jerry Reed and Vernon Dalhart are the soundscape of my world as I’m boiling up crab in the backyard or working on my old Chryslers, so the notion of ‘twangifying’ my tunes seemed like a damn good idea.” As evidenced by DDT’s live shows and debut, Les and Bryan mostly mix traditional tunes, popular covers, and readings of Primus classics (all of which are usually barely recognizable when compared to the original versions).
Editorial Reviews
¤   2014 release from eccentric bassist and Primus leader Les Claypool alongside Marc 'Mirv' Haggard. The album contains 15 songs that mix originals from Claypool's many projects with covers such as 'Man In The Box' by Alice In Chains and 'Stayin' Alive' by the Bee Gees. The LP features just Les and MIRV outside of a cameo from Claypool's son on banjo.

¤   Leslie Edward "Les" Claypool (born September 29, 1963 in Richmond, California, U.S.) is a singer, lyricist, bassist, multi-instrumentalist, and composer, best known for his work with the alternative rock band Primus. Claypool's mastery of the electric bass has brought him into the spotlight with his funky, creative playing style. Claypool mixes finger-tapping, flamenco-like strumming, and a Larry Graham-like slap technique to develop his own unique style and has earned respect as one of rock's premier bass talents, becoming an influence for younger bassists in recent years.
¤   Claypool has also self produced and engineered his solo releases from his own studio "Rancho Relaxo." In 2006 was the release of a full-length feature film Electric Apricot written and directed by Claypool as well as a debut novel South of the Pumphouse.
