I heard a rumor a while back about Claypool and Dean Ween doing a fishing show together. If this ever becomes reality it surely will be some good entertainment. Here’s what Claypool said in the last interview with Rolling Stone about the project.
Let’s talk about that fishing show.
Well, we got some financing from some friends, and went down to Florida and shot a bunch of footage. Unfortunately, didn’t catch a lot of fish, but got a lot of good footage of us attempting to catch fish. Men on the hunt. So then we shot some more footage in New Hope Pa., where we did catch a bunch of fish, which is near his house. Then he was at my place a couple of months ago, and we got incredibly drunk the night before and he actually continued on and got even more drunk with our cameraman. So we went out to fish the next day, and pretty much everybody just slept on the boat, while one guy was vomiting. So, no fish on that one either. We started off with this 30-minute episode, and we whittled it down to a five-minute piece. We’re talking to production houses, and we’re starting to take meetings, so we’ll see what happens.
Does the show have a title?
Right now we’re calling it Musishermen. And we have a great theme song – it’s exactly what you would think a hybrid of Primus and Ween would be.
