“Six reasons why Mike Patton is a f*****g genious” Ep.1:Mr.Bungle

This is the first episode of “Six reasons why Mike Patton is a f*****g genious”, and we will start in 1984, when Mike Patton founded Mr.Bungle, a funk-punk-ska-carnival experimental band, with Trevor Dunn, Trey Spruance, Theo Lengyel, and Jed Watts in Eureka, North California. The band featured three albums in Warner Bros. records (Mr. Bungle 1991, Discovolante 1995 and California 1997) and a good number of demos in cassette between 1988 and the date of release of the first Mr.Bungle album. Jim Martin from Faith No More listen one of this demos and ask Patton to cover the singer position in his band, but this story is part of the second episode…

About Sonic Youth this summer

I must admit that being one of the lucky few to welcome Sonic Youth for their only French date in the summer was kind of surreal but awesome. They were everything except self-centered or behaving like ‘Show me respect’. They were talkative even tough they had an harassing journey and I even had the privilege to shake Kim Gordon’s hand (I didn’t wash it yet…) which gives you an idea of how friendly they are.

I couldn’t take pictures unfortunately but I beg you to trust me!

During their show, they played tracks from various albums, some classics and some of their latest tunes. That was definitely a good mix to please fans and newcomers. Besides, their reputation on stage is more than well deserved. They provided us a with a real show, Thurston Moore hitting his guitar with a drumstick, Kim Gordon widely dancing on stage like a teenager, Lee Ranaldo experimenting and Steve Shelley was bent on his drums, focus, powerful and as accurate as a metronome.

All that plus the chance to see them live in my hometown, that was thrilling!

Kick…and Run!!!

You never know who is coming from your back, when you are playing the guitar…That’s the story!!! (highlight 1′ 32”)
