Well, I’m not writing out all the bands or projects he’s been in the title but I guess I’m focusing on the main ones here in this blog post today! Maybe I will go into more detail of each of his acts at a later date? I will not bother to give you any bio details but here’s his Wikipedia link, if you do need more info? He’s also got a new brand project/album I’m looking forward to entitled Corpse Flower collaboration with French composer Jean-Claude Vannier, out in a couple of months, linked here if you wanna listen to the couple of songs released?
Let’s just get on with it! So is in order of release date, my fave ten songs by him is…
Faith No More – Zombie Eaters – The Real Thing (1989)
Mr. Bungle – Quote Unquote aka Travolta – Self-titled (1991)
Faith No More – Caffeine – Angel Dust (1992)
Faith No More & Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. – Another Body Murdered – Judgment Night soundtrack (1993)
Faith No More – Evidence – King for a Day… Fool for a Lifetime (1995)
Mr. Bungle – Desert Search for Techno Allah – Disco Volante (1995)
Mike Patton – Inconsolable Widows in Search of Distraction – Adult Themes for Voice (1996)
Mike Patton – Bombe a Mano – Pranzo Oltranzista (1997)
The Jamie Saft Trio – Ballad of a Thin Man – Trouble: The Jamie Saft Trio Plays Bob Dylan (2007)
Dead Cross – Idiopathic – Self-titled (2017)
Well, it’s seven tracks from the 90’s and then one each from 80’s, 2000’s and 2010’s. Amazingly it’s not all 90’s really but that late 80’s FNM album did shine a ray of light or hope on my teenage years living in the middle of nowhere. Then I’ve never ever blogged my all time fave cover versions of his which is on a Jazz band doing Dylan songs, I just had included that one today. Dead Cross was the kind-of band/album I want him to be in for years and years, if you ask me I can’t stop raving about that so it’s a perfected ending for this weekend’s post. So 90’s is one track each from the next two FNM albums, two for the first couple of Mr. Bungle, his earliest two solo albums and one cut from a screaming soundtrack song and that’s my ten! Off course so much is missed out and like I’ve already say, I could expanded this list easy but some other time?
Please do tell me your own fave MP song/s now?
