Alternative rock may not have produced much in the way of jam bands, but it does have its share of groups for whom the playing's the thing. Primus and the Meat Puppets are both members of that camp, but each approaches improvisation in a different way.As much as the Meat Puppets might enjoy the acid-rock meanderings that season their live shows, their stock in trade is songwriting, not soloing. Kurt Cobain recognized that before most of America did, and included three Meat Puppets songs ("Lake of Fire," "Oh Me" and "Plateau")

There's an ad for the new Primus album, "Tales from the Punchbowl," that sums up the band's appeal perfectly. "If you didn't like Primus before," it reads, "you probably still won't."Not the most optimistic of ad campaigns, is it? But as Les Claypool, Primus' bass-playing frontman, puts it, "the general reaction to Primus is usually pretty mixed. We're not an easy pill to swallow by any means. It's been that way since 1984, when we started."How so? The band, which is playing at the HFS-tival tomorrow (see concert information on page 4)

So far this off-season the Orioles have acquired four high-priced free agents and one high-tech physical-therapy machine. Only the latter qualifies as a rookie in terms of Major League baseball experience. "I'm not an easy sell," head trainer Richie Bancells says of his decision to give the $50,000 BTE Primus a training-room tryout. "In my position I see a hundred things come down the pike every day, and this has really caught my eye." Think of Primus as the Swiss Army knife of rehab equipment.

FIVE LIVEGeorge Michael and Queen (Hollywood 61479)On the surface, "Five Live" seems little more than a simple tribute album, in which George Michael and the surviving members of Queen pay homage to the late Freddie Mercury. Listen closely, though, and between songs, you can almost hear Michael thumbing his nose at Sony Music. How so? Because in addition to a spirited and soulful duet with Lisa Stansfield on "These Are the Days of Our Lives" and a hammy (even by Queen's standards) rendition of "Someone to Love," Michael also manages to include a couple numbers of his own, including his "Killer/Papa Was a Rolling Stone" medley.

The Lollapalooza lineup includes:* Primus: This Bay Area trio has been around since the late '80s, and cracked the Billboard Top 10 with its latest album, "Pork Soda." Driven by the thumb-thumping virtuosity of bassist Les Claypool, Primus' sound has been described as "funkcore" (though Claypool insists that the band's R&B content is negligible), and much of its material relies on adventurous improvisation and Zappa-esque wit.* Alice in Chains: Hailing from Seattle, this quartet's sound is more heavy than grungy, and the band seems especially given to catchy choruses and hypnotic, slow-churning riffs.

In 1865, people in the North set out to help educate the many former slaves. In Connecticut, the Hartford Freedmen's Aid Society sent Rebecca Primus, 29, to Royal Oak, in Talbot County, Maryland. This bright young African-American teacher went home after four years, the sponsors having disbanded -- but not before building a schoolhouse. Grateful townspeople named her frame building the Primus Institute.Starting before the Civil War, Primus had been friends with Addie Brown, a housemaid (she worked a while at Miss Porter's School in Farmington)

PULSEPink Floyd (Columbia 67065)Although it's billed as a live album, it would probably be more accurate to describe Pink Floyd's "Pulse" simply as a concert recording. "Live," after all, suggests a certain amount of chance-taking and vivacity, and neither of those qualities are much in evidence in this double-CD set. Recorded in Europe during the group's last tour, "Pulse" is as stately and well-recorded as the group's last concert album, "The Delicate Sound of Thunder," and just about as boring.

Even though he's not happy about the circumstances, or the fact thatno one ever bothered telling him he was retiring, Primus Richardson says he will go gently into that good night.After 14 years as thecounty's emergency management officer, Richardson learned he was retiring only after County Executive Robert R. Neall announced his departure at a news conference.And if that weren't insult enough, he soon found that everyone liked his work but that no one wanted to save his job."I have the utmost respect for Primus," said Councilman Dave Boschert, D-Crownsville.
