What would be the best band to check into that Mike Patton is in? This is kind of a favorties thread, but I think others should know as well as me, I mean come on, it's Mike Patton ;) Also, we can talk about Mike Pattons work.

I've heard of Tomahawk, Faith No More, Fantomas, and Mr. Bungle. Anymore? And I've also heard the Dillinger Escape Plan EP he did, amazing.

I'm looking for more lyrics like in When Good Dogs Do Bad Things, I'm really into weird lyrics like that.

And if this is too much of a problem mods can close it.

Other than the band thing, again, feel free to talk about him.

I can only think of Lovage which you say you haven't heard already, trip-hop group, I really like them but others don't rate them that high.

Faith No More is still my favorite out-fit he has been involved with.

Mr.Bungle's California and FNM's King For A Day.

I'd say Mr. Bungle.

To me, California was the best album he's ever been involved in. Irony is a Dead Scene comes close though.

Irony Is A dead Scene was amazing for me...
It's a shame he didn't stay with them.

Looks like I'll be checking out Mr. Bungle and Lovage

Fantomas are my favourite at the moment I like there stuff alot.

He done the stuff wit the Executioners its a hip hop album and really good.

He has a solo outift which is really "pop" music and is brillinat aswell.

You know all the other ones.

There are a few others but havnt seen the light of day yet.

Also here is a site with a lot of stuff to do with Mike Patton:

It pretty much tells you all the stuff he has been apart of.

I picked up Suspended Animation (the special edition one) yesterday and am loving it. The Director's Cut is also great. I can't wait until I get the other albums.

I want to try out Mr. Bungle but haven't had the chance yet, and for FNM I think I may just pick up a GH album.

Mr. Bungle, no doubt. California is up there with my favorite albums of all time. Fantomas is on of my fav's too, but imo, Bungle was his best.

Dried Muffin Remnants
09-03-2005, 11:59 AM
Lovage is cool, but his best band is definitely Mr Bungle. California was brilliantly produced and is all around one of the best albums I've ever listened to. It has so much depth in that every song on it has potential to be a favorite.

What about Tomahawk people? I personally believe this is also one of his best bands next to Mr. Bungle and Fantomas.

Has anyone heard the songs North 101 or Sir Yes Sir? They are great representations of what they are capable of.

br3ad_man
09-13-2005, 03:20 AM
I like Tomahawk probably the best. I personally think "Captain Midnight" is the best song Patton has ever done. And that's a really hard title to earn.

munky_magik
09-13-2005, 04:22 AM
Calirfornia is his best work by far, I think. And also one of my favourite albums of all time.

You should also check out his work with The Executioners - general patton's vs the executioners which is really quite good as well. He also did some interesting stuff with Rahzel which you cold check out, though I don't know if you'd like it or not.

I love tomahawk the most.

Its just ingenious some of the stuff they do.

But I do like Bungle aswell.

Favourite songs - Flashback, When The Stars Begin To Fall, Laredo, Josckstrap (Tomahawk), Egg, Slowly Growing Deaf, Stubb A Dub (Mr Bungle), Stripsearch, She Loves Me Not (Faith No More).

Bartender
09-13-2005, 05:37 AM
I made a thread in Other asking about that a while ago, and Zappa told me to "forget it", which I think meant it collapsed, or has been called off.

Though the reason I made the thread in the first place was because I'd read a rumour somewhere that it might eventually surface within the coming year. So, I'm confused.

Prince of Darkness
09-13-2005, 05:45 AM
My favorite Patton band would have to be Mr. Bungle. Next to that, Tomahawk and maybe FAntomas, but they are pushing the boundries of crazyness. FNM, IMO, is his worst. They have a few good songs, but after that,they did nothing for me.

sakic73
09-18-2005, 06:31 PM
I agree with what everyone has said about Tomahawk. It's good to hear some comments on them as I think they are quite underrated compared with his other stuff, especially Bungle and Fantomas.

SSSnake...
09-21-2005, 09:45 PM
First time I heard Mr Bungle, I thought it was a complete joke. Now I love them. It's funny how your tastes can change so drastically like that over time

He's done a few other projects which haven't been mentioned yet. Off the top of my head, there's Patton & Rahzel.

'The themes for adult voices' (sp?)

and Maldoror w/ the ****ing legendary Masami Akita, aka - Merzbow

Me and some mates went to the Roskilde Festival in Denmark back in June and saw Patton play in Fantomas, Patton and Rahzel, Patton and Kaada, and Maldoror. He's such a twisted genius and composer. The man is not human!

HazMan
09-23-2005, 08:33 AM
I started out with FNM, then moved on to a bit of Bungle. I thought this was a necessary progression into the insanity of Fantomas, and much of his other work. I'm a huge Patton fan, all i can say is get what ya can and give it time to gel lol.

It's an experience that's for sure. Although I wanna catch them again with Lombardo this time on drums. He was touring with Slayer when I saw Fantomas, so they had Frank Zappa's old drummer. Quite bizarre really. If you're familiar with Lombardo's drum set up, you can imagine how crazy it was to see that dude play with a kit twice as many drums. He was literally surrounded by an 8 foot circle wall of drums. Nobody could see him. :lol:

I've been getting into Mike Patton quite a bit lately actually. I've owned Mr Bungle ST and Epic by Faith No More for quite a while and only until last week ive started giving them some serious attention. Since then I got the other two Mr Bungle releases, Fantomas Suspended animation and the ep he did with DEP. I really need to give them all a good listen (I've been loading up with albums lately)
I'm curious what are your guys fav Fantomas and Faith No More album?
Is Tomahawk worth a listen? What kind of genre?

Bartender
10-01-2005, 05:22 PM
My favourite FNM album would be Angel Dust, with King For a Day, Fool For a Lifetime a close second. Favourite Fantomas album is the self-titled/Amenaza Al Mundo, without doubt.

Tomahawk can be, vaguely, called a hard rock band. It's somewhat 'weird' and a little disturbed in it's own right, but it's a lot more approachable than, for example, Fantomas.

10-01-2005, 08:50 PM
i love california, but i like the self title better for bungle.
the directors cut is my second favourite fantomas album, behind the fantomas melvins millennium monsterwork has to be the best IMO
has anyone else heard the birthday jam he did with john zorn for his 50th?? it is one of the most insane live albums ever.

I don't think so. There might be..but at the very least you can claim to have been confused by the introduction of the new rules, if anyone calls you out on it.

I didn't know the Peeping Tom project was available at all :-/ It was something Patton was supposedly working on for several years, never quite setting a release date but hinting that it would be out soon (his Chinese Democracy, if you will). It was supposed to be much more accessible, or poppier, than anything he'd done since FNM or California, I think (Fantomas, Tomahawk, his solo stuff, etc).

I heard it had just been binned, in the end.

Get Angel Dust for FNM.

For Tomahawk get the self-titled first then Mit Gas.

Also, if you you like Acid Jazz type stuff you could check out Lovage. Thats some nice music right there. :thumb:

I can't wait for Peeping Tom. It's still (supposedly) coming out, and I hear it's going to be almost a classical pop album; I just dont know what that means, or where I heard it. Either way, I'm a huge fan of Patton's originality, and his really amazing voice, so I'm stoked for anything he has coming out. Oh, dont think you know what it's going to sound like by leaked demo's, they were unfinished. Oh, and he only played all the instruments for the demo, he did this for the Fantomas demos too.

I've just been getting into Patton a lot more recently. I have had Angel Dust for about 5 years now but I've decided to find more of his stuff.

Mr. Bungle's self titled was a fun, quirky, off the wall album. It's a great listen if you're in the mood, but the songs can get real old after a while.
Disco Volante was a harder listen. A lot of noise, and just not enough music. A real put off for a lot of people. Just too wierd.
California, a very definitive album for the genre. It has the perfect mix of quirkiness and crazyness, but yet is still very musical and easily listenable. It is an amazing album, and a great one to end their carrer on. My favorite from Mr. Bungle.

I got Disco Volante and California at the same time, and out of the two Disco Volante was my favourite, so random and fun and i wouldn't touch California it just didn't work on any level for me. Many listens later through gritted teeth i realise just what an accomplished work it is. I find that's the way i've come to enjoy most of Mike's work, forced listening that later blossoms.

Apparently he's working on the next Tomahawk as well as another Eyvind Kang collaboration. Sweet.

Based on what I've read, those demos aren't what'll show up on the album.
No, those were the sketches. They don't include the collaborations.
