San Francisco rockers Primus remember the missing in the new video for "Jilly's on Smack," a song from this year's Green Naugahyde inspired by a friend of the band's who "disappeared into the world of heroin," singer Les Claypool says. Directed by Jordan Copeland (son of Police drummer Stewart Copeland), the clip sports a fittingly eerie vibe as it siwtches between shots of the band playing live and grainy found footage of family life, with a holiday theme. "Oftentimes it is the parents grandparents, siblings, etc., that feel the brunt of the heartache as they look at that empty dinner chair or Christmas stocking," Claypool says.
