Supergroup Oysterhead featured Trey Anastasio of Phish on guitar, Primus bassist Les Claypool and Stewart Copeland of The Police pounding the skins. The group first came together at Superfly Productions’ urging in 2000 to play a show during that year’s New Orleans Jazz Fest in The Crescent City. Les, Trey and Stewart hit it off and reformed a year later to record what stands as their only studio album – The Grand Pecking Order
