  • Belatedly some Mike Patton with Sepultura from Rock in Rio.
  • Patton’s Mondo Cane does Che Notte

  • It had to happen. Natural bedfellows. Together at last.  King for a Day… meets Grey’s Anatomy
  • Maquinaria Festival tickets are available here
  • Given the fact that they will be playing the album in its entirety in Chile at the above festival on 12 November, what better time to revisit this great piece from Metal Hammer on the story behind the album.

  • The tireless Holy Filament have just posted a clip of a new Mike Patton interview with an Argentinean radio station. Mike’s Mondo Cane play Buenos Aires on 17 and 18 September and 21 September Santiago and 24 September in Rio.
  • No video or reviews have surfaced from Bill’s Talking Book concert on Sunday night but here is the latest review of the album from Bearded.
  • As tweeted and mentioned in comments, the announcement of a release date for Mike Patton’s The Solitude of Prime Numbers score has garnered quite a bit of publicity. Here is the SF Examiner’s take: “On Nov. 11, via his imprint Ipecac, he’ll be releasing a tribute of sorts, “Music From The Film And Inspired By The Book The Solitude Of Prime Numbers.”  He calls this cinematic album a real “sonic departure,” and he’s dutifully numbered the 16 tracks in perfect prime fashion — 3, 5, 7, and so on, up to 53.”
  • Noisecreep reveal the track listing:
    2. Twin Primes
    3. Identity Matrix
    5. Method of Infinite Descent
    7. Contrapositive
    11. Cicatrix
    13. Abscissa
    17. Isolated Primes
    19. Radius of Convergence
    23. Separatrix
    29. The Snow Angel
    31. Apnoea
    37. Supersingular Primes
    41. Quadratix
    43. Calculus of Finite Differences
    47. Zeroth
    53. Weight of Consequences
    The album is released through Ipecac on 1 November.

New Mike Patton interview

September 6th, 2011|Faith No More, News|18 Comments

Rolling Stone Argentina features an in-depth interview with Faith No More singer Mike Patton.

The interview mainly focuses on Mondo Cane and Mike’s upcoming Mondo Cane shows in Argentina on 17 and 18 September. But Mike also speaks about two impending prjects – preparing a new album with Tomahawk and putting the “finishing touches” to Nevermen with Tunde Adebimpe of TV On The Radio and Adam “Doseone” Drucker. He also speaks about not talking about Faith No More: “We are trying to focus on it and devote ourselves to enjoying the ritual of playing in each other’s company again. Not thinking about new albums and new recordings, simply the pleasure of being back together.”*
