Leading English newspaper The Guardian has an extensive feature on Mike Patton as part of its Hey, what’s that sound? series.
Sample quote:
“Why is it classic? The sounds that come slithering, gargling and retching out of Patton could belong to no other living creature. Every note he sings is instantly recognisable, but several light years outside from what most professional singers consider melody. Even his abrupt twist away from rock stardom into the avant-garde hasn’t seemed unlikely or alienated his passionately loyal fanbase.”
