Mike Patton In-depth Biography

Mike Patton} could very well be one of the most versatile and talented singers in rock} music. He may be rock}'s most valuable player as well, since he has divided his time between at least three projects: Faith No More}, Mr. Bungle}, and an experimental} solo career. Born in Eureka, CA, on January 27, 1968, Patton} discovered his vocal talents when he and some high school friends formed the wacked-out Mr. Bungle}. The group touched upon almost every musical style imaginable and became popular in their region. The members of Faith No More} first met Patton} around 1988, when they were playing a show in the area. The group was having problems with their singer at the time, Chuck Mosley}, and gave a careful listen to a Mr. Bungle} demo that Patton} gave the group. They were blown away. When Mosley} finally got the boot a short time later, the band set out to find a replacement. Since Patton} was quite content with being a college student and playing with Mr. Bungle}, he didn't exactly jump at the invitation (interestingly, the band also asked Chris Cornell} of Soundgarden}). Eventually he did change his mind, but made it clear that he would be a member of Faith No More} and Mr. Bungle}. Patton} proved to be an important addition to FNM}, as they gained worldwide fame and notoriety with releases like The Real Thing}, Angel Dust}, and Album of the Year}. Mr. Bungle} signed to Warner Bros.}, due in part to Patton}'s newfound fame, and released their self-titled debut in 1991 (produced by experimentalist John Zorn}) and the critically acclaimed Disco Volante} in 1995. Although they didn't acquired massive FNM}-like success, they obtained a loyal and constantly growing fan base. Patton} continued to work with John Zorn}, releasing a pair of solo albums for Zorn}'s Tzadik} label, in addition to guesting on tracks by Sepultura}, the Kronos Quartet}, and the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.}, among others. A year after Faith No More} called it a day in mid-1998, Patton} launched his own record label, Ipecac}. The label's first release was the self-titled debut by the Patton}-led, all-star experimental} outfit Fantomas}, who also included former Slayer} drummer Dave Lombardo}, Melvins} guitarist Buzz Osbourne}, and Mr. Bungle} bassist Trevor Dunn}. Patton} then returned to Mr. Bungle}, contributing to one of their finest albums, the Beach Boys}-tinged California}. He subsequently joined ex-Jesus Lizard} guitarist Duane Denison}'s Tomahawk} (featuring ex-Helmet} drummer John Stanier} and Melvins} bassist Kevin Rutmanis}) and formed the R&B}/pop}/electronic} experiment Lovage} (a collaboration with hip-hop} producer the Automator}). He also contributed tracks to Tzadik Records}' tributes to Burt Bacharach}, Serge Gainsbourg}, and Marc Bolan}. 2001 saw the release of Fantomas}' sophomore effort, The Director's Cut}, the debut recording of Tomahawk}, and a collaboration with Dan the Automator} on the Lovage} album. Patton} also tried his hand at acting in such motion picture projects as Firecracker} and Amnesia}. Lovage} was met with great enthusiasm to new audiences, inspiring Dan the Automator} and Patton} to collaborate on more songs throughout 2002 for a Peeping Tom} album. And when old friends Dillinger Escape Plan} found themselves without a singer that spring, Patton} stepped up and helped them put together a new EP, even continuing as a temporary singer after they had filled the position. ~ Greg Prato, All Music Guide
