Sean's father was also a musician, best known as rhythm guitarist and sometimes vocalist/songwriter for the 1960's era British boy band The Beatles.

Sean's been making great music himself for years, most recently as part of Ghost of The Saber Tooth Tiger with Charlotte Kemp Muhl. If you haven't checked out their stuff and Sean's other work, do yourself a favor and do so immediately. The neo-psychedelic sounds will appeal to fans of Sean's father's band, and, in fact, Sean's voice can be remarkably similar at times to his dad's (Lennon did teach Sean to speak after all, as well as passing on the DNA, so it's not a shocker they should sound alike). This is not as much of a distraction as you might think, and the overall effect is soothing and nostalgic,the sound of glancing toward the past while boldly stepping into the future.

I've never been a huge Primus fan, but this collaboration seems to be quite promising.
