Oh how kick ASS that someone BUMPED up the PATTON LOVE! Woooo!
i got The Real Thing ages ago and really liked it and then got Angel Dust yesterday. I have to say it is awesome!!! I know I'm not a hardcore Patton fan with all his Mr Bungle, Fantomas and Tomahawk albums but I still wanna register my appreciation.
Seeing any Mike Patton project live is an experience like no other...and i've seen most of them - Mr Bungle, Lovage, Tomahawk, Fantomas, Peeping Tom, Faith No More....hes like a mad scientist up there conducting his orchestra. The Mr Bungle show I saw on the California tour was one of the best shows i've ever seen....to just stand back and truly enjoy somebody that amazing at what they do, unlike anything i've ever heard before - blows me away that their music could sound so random and chaotic and yet be so tight and completely under his control.....the best true vocalist in alternative music history IMO
"Patton utilizes a wide variety of vocal styles and techniques, and so his performances can (and often do) include airy falsetto passages, Sinatra-esque lounge crooning, death metal grunts, Medieval-style chanting, an abrasive take on scat singing featuring various shrieks, screeches, and the occasional jostling of his Adam's apple while singing, as well as a variety of authentic-sounding vocal emulations of things such as flowing water, a train, or a computer voice. This diversity has earned him the respect of numerous critics and fans, who consider him one of the most talented vocalists in recorded music."
Oh OH....and hearing this man sing Portishead's GLORY BOX?!?! :eek:
WOOOOW! Fuckin brilliant! Made some people respect/appreciate and love even more. GO MIKE!!!!!!!
This thread needs a revival. Bought King for a day, fool for a lifetime today. its awesome. Also has anyone heard the track that mike did with Handsome Boy Modelling school? or the stuff with John Zorn for that matter? truly great stuff.
