At the time, Adam was working in Hollywood on set design, make-up and special effects for big-budget movies, including Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Jurassic Park.

Especially if you quite like being creeped out by odd-as-hell animation. Not like real real. Jones is both a classically-trained musician and an artist. Occultist, psychedelia enthusiast and member of supergroup Legend Of The Seagullmen, Carey is supposedly capable of playing snare drum solos using his feet.
The song was released as their second single from their debut studio album Undertow. The song uses a modified drop-B tuning. The track features an "anti-climax" coda,  in which memorable verses and choruses dissolve into an unrelated, quiet final section. The video for "Prison Sex" was created with stop-motion animation techniques, and was directed by the band's guitarist Adam Jones who had previous experience in art direction and animation, including work on the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park and was edited by Ken Andrews. The video was removed from the MTV playlist due to its disturbing content.
