Don’t know what I’m talking about?? Really? Ok trust me, you know this guy. Ok remember this? Pretty awesome for a band that didn’t know the 80′s were over. In any case.. Oh yeah ever play GTA San Andreas? How’s this?… Oh the memories.. The civilian killing, airplane crashing, gang war… bicycle riding….. Hot Coffee mod memories….
Anyway, our man of the hour Mike Patton‘s dynamic resumé of acts includes a track done with the Book of Knots, of which of course includes Joel Hamiliton… And who is that, you may be wondering? Well he mixed and mastered a TON of tracks for SNT’s favorite band The Giraffes…..
I’ll just leave this here
Ok but really, on to Mike Patton
5. Because really, fuck Anthony Kiedis
So I like RHCP, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t at least like one song from them but EVERYONE I know who has read ‘Scar Tissue’ says to watch out, because apparently he is a major douche.
Anyway according to Wikipedia, “Kiedis saw Patton performing with Faith No More and accused him of imitating his style. … Following [an] album release date clash, Kiedis had Mr. Bungle removed from a series of summer festivals in Europe; as the headlining act at the festivals, The Red Hot Chili Peppers had final word on the bands that would appear. Patton stated ‘Our agent was in the process of booking these festivals, and it was becoming apparent that we’d landed some pretty good ones – one in France, another one in Holland, some big-name festivals. Turns out someone’s holding a grudge! We were booted off several bills, specifically because Anthony Kiedis did not want us on the bill. He threatened to pull the Chili Peppers if Mr. Bungle was on the bill. Now, rationalize that one! That’s so fucking pathetic! I mean, this guy’s selling a million records! We are not even a speck of dust on this guy’s ass! What’s the fucking problem?’ … We found out it was the Red Hot Chili Peppers, so our manager called their manager to find out what the hell was going on, and their manager was very apologetic, and said, ‘We’re really sorry, we want you to know this doesn’t reflect the management’s position, or the band’s for that matter, it’s Anthony Kiedis who wants this.’”
“As a result, Mr. Bungle parodied the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Pontiac, Michigan on Halloween of 1999. Patton introduced each Mr. Bungle band member with the name of one of the Red Hot Chili Peppers…Mr. Bungle also satirized many of the mannerisms of the band, mocking heroin injections and on-stage antics.”
That whole band fucking rocks for that!
4. I think he is a Time Traveler
After watching the next video I’m pretty sure he traveled back to 1975 and banged some girl who had a child that later grew up to be Brandon Boyd. That is the ONLY explanation I can find for this
3. Because who doesn’t like being scared by Bjork?
Really, I think Bjork is an alien, but an awesome – slightly scary – alien.. and so I must give credit to anyone who can help her take her
madness art to a new freakish level
2. Because he can put this much effort into a joke
Gotta thank fellow SNT homie Mike for this, which he describes as “a parody of hypersexed trip hop”
1. BECAUSE THIS IS HOW A FUCKING MAN SINGS!!
So bad he needs 3 mics.
There are so many other amazing projects headed up by or featuring Mike Patton, so here is a great place to start lurking.
