Primus performs in the Greene Space.

In this episode: Primus is probably one of the strangest and most entertaining rock bands around. But with their new album, Primus and the Chocolate Factory, Les Claypool and the gang have gone above and beyond with their reinterpreted songs from the 1971 film Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. The album includes classics like “Pure Imagination," “I’ve Got A Golden Ticket," and, oh yeah, four different Oompa Loompa songs. Just in time for Halloween, Primus brought its giant Wonka live show and costumes to WNYC's Greene Space for a wild afternoon party. Hear the band perform selections from the album. And watch the full thing here.

Then: Kristin Meinzer and Rafer Guzman, co-hosts of The Takeaway’s Movie Date podcast, share some of their favorite scary movie audio.
