프라이머스- 악마는 조지아로 갔다네 (Rhinoplasty,1998) 음악

메탈리카 베이시스트가 될 뻔 했던 리더가 이끄는 밴드, 프라이머스.

프라이머스- 위노나의 커다란 갈색 비버에서 (이 곡에서 더 잘 드러난다..그 실력이;) 이미 소개한대로 메탈리카의 두번째 베이시스트자리 그러니까 '제이슨 뉴스테드'자리에 '너무 그루브를 잘타고 잘친다는 이유로' 떨어진 양반이 이끄는 미국내 한정 슈퍼밴드, 프라이머스.

예전에도 한번 소개한 바 있는데 이 밴드는 그야말로 어느 락의 서브장르에도 넣기 힘든 그들만의 색감을 가지고 있다. 굳이 개인적으로 분류하자면 얼터너티브 락 + 메탈+ 서던 락을 짬뽕한 느낌.
레스 클레이풀(Les Claypool)이 바로 메탈리카 오디션에서 너무 잘 치는데 안 어울린다는 이유로 떨어진 양반. 베이스 겸 리드 보컬을 맡고 있다. "악마는 조지아로 갔다네"라는 이곡은 원래 찰리 대니얼스밴드라는 밴드가 1979년 발표했던 곡이 원곡으로 컨트리 락이었다.

이곡을 쓴 찰리 대니얼스는 인터뷰에서 확실친 않지만 자신이 고등학교때 읽었던 1936년 작 'The Devil and Daniel Webster'에서 영감을 받았다고.

Primus- The Devil went down to Georgia (1998년)



The Devil went down to Georgia,
He was looking for a soul to steal
He was in a bind, 'cause he was way behind,
He was willing to make a deal
When he came across this young man
Sawing on a fiddle and playing it hot
And the Devil jumped up on a hickory stump and said,
"Boy let me tell you what:
I guess you didn´t know it, but I'm a fiddle player too,
And if you'd care to take a dare,
I'll make a bet with you
Now you play a pretty good fiddle,
Boy, but give the Devil his due
I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul
'Cause I think I'm better than you"

The boy said, "My name's Johnny and it might be a sin,
But I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret,
'Cause I'm the best there's ever been"

Johnny, rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard,
'Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia and the Devil deals the cards
And if you win you'll get this shiny fiddle made of gold,
But if you lose, the Devil gets your soul!

The Devil opened up his case and he said, "I'll start this show"
And fire blew from his fingertips as he rosined up his bow
And he pulled the bow across the strings and it made an evil hiss
Then a band of demons joined in,
And it sounded something like this

When the Devil finished, Johnny said,
"Well you're pretty good old son
But sit down in that chair right there
And let me show you how it's done!"

Fire on the Mountain, run, boys, run
The Devil´s in the house of the rising sun
Chicken in the bread pan a picking out dough,
Granny does your dog bite, "No, child, no"

The Devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat
And he laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny´s feet
Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back
If you ever want to try again,
I done told you once, you son of a bitch,
I'm the best there´s ever been"

He played,
Fire on the Mountain, run, boys, run
The Devil's in the house of the rising sun
Chicken in the breadpan a picking out dough,
Granny will your dog bite, "No, child, no"
