    Mr. Bungle


    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Insert


    Etched D-side


    Produced by John Zorn, Mr. Bungle is the eponymous debut studio album album by American band Mr. Bungle, released in 1991. The album contains many genre shifts which are typical of the band, and helped increase the band's popularity, gaining them a reasonable following and fanbase.


    Critics deem the album a 'dizzying, disconcerting, schizophrenic tour through just about any rock style the group can think of, hopping from genre to genre without any apparent rhyme or reason, and sometimes doing so several times in the same song.' Mike Patton's lyrics are even more bizarrely humorous than those he used in Faith No More, and they're also less self-censored, as titles like Squeeze Me Macaroni, My Ass Is on Fire, and The Girls of Porn indicate. This is a difficult, not very accessible record, and the band wouldn't have it any other way.


    Incredibly, the original vinyl version of Mr. Bungle was pressed on a single LP, which - with an album duration of 75 minutes - had a rather dull dynamic sound as a result. For the Music On Vinyl version, we've added another LP side to give the music more space to breathe. To top it off, it boasts a unique etch on the D-side!

    Disco Volante

    Disco Volante is the second studio album by American experimental Rock band Mr. Bungle. Released in 1995, it is considered by many to be the most experimental of all their albums, picking up inspiration from a wide variety of musical styles including Death Metal, Techno, '50s space age Pop, musique concrète and Italian avant-garde.


    Faith No More's vocalist Mike Patton also uses a great number of vocal effects boxes and samples throughout the album.


    The album's title refers to the name of the yacht of the same name featured in the James Bond film Thunderball. Disco Volante has been well received by critics, being called a 'totally original and new musical style, and an album that sounds like nothing that currently exists'. The track "Desert Search For Techno Allah" is described as 'a middle eastern Techno number that has to be heard to be believed.' This is a band whose sole purpose is to break all the pre-existing rules of music and doesn't think twice about taking chances.

    Disco Volante

    One of the most uncompromising and adventurous major label releases of the 90s, Mr. Bungles second album, originally released in 1995, is an 'alternative' record only in the vaguest sense of the word. Incorporating death metal, free jazz, experimental electronica, and ambient soundtracks, along with Mike Pattons outrageous vocal style, Disco Volante is probably the most important and groundbreaking release of Pattons storied career, and thats saying a lot. Think Faith No More, John Zorn, Frank Zappa and Ennio Morricone rolled into one.

    California

    California is the third and final studio album by Mr. Bungle and the follow-up to Disco Volante (1995). The American experimental band including Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk, Fantômas, etc) was formed in 1985 while the members were still in high school. Mr. Bungle released four demo tapes in the mid to late 1980s before being signed to a major label and releasing three full-length studio albums between 1991 and 1999. Mr. Bungle was known for its distinctive musical traits, often cycling through several musical genres within the course of a single song. Many of its songs had an unconventional structure and utilized a wide array of instruments and samples. Originally released in 1999 California was generally well received.

    Mondo Cane

    Limited vinyl LP pressing of this album from the Faith No More frontman. Mondo Cane is a 2010 album by Mike Patton. Featuring a forty-member orchestra and fifteen-piece backing band, the album contains a series of cover versions of 1950s and 1960s Italian pop music. Patton conceived of the album while living in Bologna, and became attracted to music he heard on the radio featuring pop singers backed by orchestras. Released on May 4, 2010, through Patton's record label Ipecac Recordings, Mondo Cane has been met with favorable responses from music critics. Reviewers have drawn comparisons to California, an earlier album by Patton's first group Mr. Bungle. Mondo Cane peaked at #2 in the United States' Classical Albums chart, briefly charting in Switzerland and Finland as well.

    Maps Of Non-Existent Places

    Claudio Sanchez has officially launched his record label Evil Ink Records and his first signing is New Jersey's young experimental progressive rock septet
    Thank You Scientist. The newly formed label, distributed by INgrooves, will be releasing a fully remixed and remastered version of the band's 2012 debut
    full-length record, Maps of Non-Existent Places, in time for their run with Coheed and Cambria's "Neverender:IKSSE3 Tour."


    Claudio Sanchez knows a little bit about progressive music. His career has spanned 12 years and 7 albums, likely encompassing the longest concept
    album arc in the history of rock and roll. Now, in effort to further support and promote his beloved complex genre, he has launched a label dedicated to
    sharing a wealth of future talent with the first signing being the extremely talented seven-piece band Thank You Scientist.


    For the uninitiated, Thank You Scientist was forged from the music program at Montclair State University in New Jersey when guitarist Tom Monda met
    saxophonist Ellis Jasenovic and trumpeter Andrew Digrius. The three bonded over their love for Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Beatles and
    Harry Nilsson. Those influences would become the seeds for what Thank You Scientist would evolve into today.


    With the addition of vocalist Salvatore Marrano, bassist Greg Colacino, drummer Odin Alvarez and violinist Ben Karas, Thank You Scientist's lineup of
    virtuoso musicians was complete. The band would go on to self-release an EP, The Perils of Time Travel, in 2011 followed by their debut full-length, Maps
    of Non-Existent Places, in 2012, which caught the ear of Sanchez, a fellow purveyor of progressive stylings, and led to his signing of the band.


    To pinpoint Thank You Scientist's sound would be inconceivable. On Maps of Non-Existent Places they hold a virtual master class on musicianship,
    fusing elements of progressive rock with jazz fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic and pop for a head spinning, mind-blowing listening experience. The
    seven-piece band, who collectively play some 20 instruments, boasts a hyper-composed sound which is indebted to their experience and formal training
    in both classical and jazz idioms.


    A Frank Zappa for the indie generation? Incubus jamming with the Mahavishnu Orchestra? Mr. Bungle and Steely Dan joining forces to fight Godzilla?
    King Crimson and the Brecker Brothers serenading you at your bedside? It all seems so strange on paper, yet it's sure to satisfy your ears in the best of
    ways.

    King For A Day

    After Faith No More founding guitarist Jim Martin split the band in 1994, Trey Spruance of Mr. Bungle took over six string duties for King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime. Upon its release, the album quickly reasserted that Faith No More were still on top of their game.


    Keeping their harder edge on songs like Get Out, Ricochet and Cuckoo For Caca, the album is balanced with romantic love songs (Evidence), breezy Pop (Caralho Voador) and the more experimental tinged title track.


    The original release was sparsely pressed on vinyl which makes King For A Day a true collector's item.

    The Mouths Of Madness

    Taking into consideration that the Californian quintet had obviously already found its formula for success, one could have expected them to play save by fully maintaining the first record's course. However, when giving ORCHID's sophomore release "The Mouths Of Madness" a spin for the first time, one will immediately realize that it embodies anything but stagnation! "The new tracks sound much more direct - the tunes are of a higher quality, somehow more on the spot, which can be traced back to the fact that we've all become better musicians", guitarist Mark Thomas Baker states. "Plus there's an increased amount of psychedelic parts that we weren't able to show as much before, while the use of synthesizers was decreased, compared to »Capricorn«". The instrumental recordings, split into two separate sessions, were done in Hyde Street Studios, San Francisco (DEAD KENNEDYS, MR. BUNGLE, JOE SATRIANI, EXODUS) as well as in Laughing Tiger Studios, San Rafael (SANTANA, SAMMY HAGAR), before long-time producer and engineer Will Storkson and his home studio came into play, where the vocals were tracked. Carrying their 70's-doom-hard-rock vibe to a new level of intensity and adding new facets to the work of art, ORCHID haves succeeded in staying true to their roots while refining their trademark sound at the same time. Or, as the press puts it: "The true heir of BLACK SABBATH!" (Rock Hard Italy)

    Axe To Fall

    After nearly 20 years, such a glorious run of releases and a live show that's gone from flailing kids flailing against kids to legendary exorcism for both band and audience - watch the pit during "The Saddest Day" and tell me it's not the closest thing to a near-religious experience atheists will ever have - Converge could be forgiven for releasing an endeavour that was simply good, okay, just maintaining their status quo. After all, it's much easier to win the title than retain it, and even the greats slip from time to time. Axe To Fall (Converge's third release for indie institution Epitaph Records), however, is no such relapse.
    True to themselves and their art, as always, no matter the cost, Axe To Fall continues to push relentlessly forward, much like a shark that needs to always keep swimming to survive. Where No Heroes was a refinement and broadening of hostilities declared on previous assaults such as Jane Doe, Axe To Fall returns to the more AmRep-inspired noisecore abrasions of You Fail Me while also updating and making vital the thrash influences that defined earlier Converge efforts (Caring and Killing, Petitioning the Empty Sky) and retaining the hardcore hostilities and frantic pace so vital to their foundation. Of course, the experimental anguish and pleading for salvation are no mere sharpening of past knives but yet another leap forward in an existence full of them.


    From frenetic, frantic opening track "Dark Horse," which is a downhill avalanche of ferocity culminating in one of the heaviest riffs Converge have ever laid listeners to waste with, to "Worms Will Feed," an ominous exploration that ebbs and flows, building upon crashing then retreating waves of music and lyrical condemnations ("the worms will find a way, the rats will find a way"), to the barely restrained chaos of "Losing Battle" and Axe To Fall's sanguine, beautiful, climatic seven-minute-plus dÉnouement, "Wretched Word," Axe To Fall isn't just another mere "release" or record from spoiled kids discovering metal and crying about how difficult life is in the suburbs. Axe To Fall is a nearly two-decade culmination of hard roads travelled and unwanted, but necessary, lessons learned, of prayers for salvation lost to the wind and too-fleeting nights where everything was still, if only for a moment, consumed by morning's inevitable advance, of crushing defeats and the realization that the war only ends when we do, and it's not one we can win, merely endure. Once again recorded by Converge's resident engineering genius Kurt Ballou, whose God City Recording Studios has become the Mecca for aggressive music's elite to congregate at for assistance realizing their sonic sermons (from Trap Them and Genghis Tron to Torche and Buried Inside), Axe To Fall is as sonically dense a tapestry and punishing a release as Converge have ever conceived, once again perfectly echoing musically Bannon's heart-ripped-out-of-chest-but-still-beating lyrics. It's the summation of experiences learned working on records such as No Heroes and You Fail Me, also recorded by Ballou at God City, and it surpasses them.


    But even while Converge and Axe To Fall stand alone - as Bannon is so fond of saying live: "we're born into this world alone, and we die alone, so make your mark while you're here" - they've never forgotten the core values of the hardcore scene they were raised in, and raised others on: community. Axe To Fall is Converge's most collaborative effort to date, even while paradoxically sounding as focused as ever. Axe To Fall features the likes of John Pettibone (Undertow, Himsa), Ulf Cederlund (Entombed, Disfear), Cave In's Steve Brodsky, Adam McGrath and J.R. Connors, F. Sean Martin (Hatebreed), George Hirsch (Blacklisted) and Genghis Tron's Mookie Singerman, Hamilton Jordan and Michael Sochynsky, amongst others, contributing to its dense sonic soundscapes. Even Steve Von Till (of legendary star destroyers Neurosis) graces the record on "Cruel Bloom," an ignoring of musical confines that sounds akin to something Tom Waits and Mr. Bungle might concoct if trapped in a watering hole on the fringes of Purgatory right before the end-time hit.

    Basses Loaded

    It's 2016 and the Melvins have an album called Basses Loaded coming out that features six different bass players. That's right SIX different bass players. NEW Melvins bass players for this go around are Steve McDonald from the legendary Los Angeles glam punk band Redd Kross and their old friend Krist Novoselic from Nirvana! Making return appearances are former and probably future bass players Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle/Fantomas), Jared Warren (Big Business) and Dale Crover.


    Six bass players? Is this a joke? What IS the deal with these ceaseless idiots? Can't they just settle in and be happy with ONE line up?


    Apparently not.


    I suppose it figures considering how many goddam bass players they've had up until this point.


    Nonetheless Basses Loaded actually works!


    According to King Buzzo, "More is more! As hard as it might be to believe, all of these bass players contribute something of their own to Basses Loaded which gives the whole album a good kick right in it's big fat ass."


    Recording with Krist Novoselic is something that should have happened a long time ago but rumor has it that he's been busy doing things like playing bass with Paul McCartney and getting his ass inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's hard to believe he even bothered with this! Ha!


    Butthole Surfer and Honky member Jeff Pinkus played on the Melvins' album Hold it In and has done shit load of touring with the boys in the last few years.


    Trevor Dunn recorded the Freak Puke album with these guys as well as played bass on the Melvins' record setting US tour where they played all 50 states plus DC in 51 days. This was also released as a tour DVD last year entitled Across the USA in 51 Days, the Movie!


    Jared Warren is a Melvins' veteran having recorded the Senile Animal, Nude with Boots and The Bride Screamed Murder albums as well as the Bulls and the Bees EP. Dale Crover is usually the Melvins drummer but slid over to bass when they brought back original drummer Mike Dillard for the Tres Cabrones album (this line-up was called Melvins 1983).


    Steve McDonald has been in Redd Kross since he was 11 and he's a founding member of Los Angeles hardcore band OFF! plus he's got REALLY good stories about the "rock scene" in Los Angeles! The Melvins have a shit load of touring planned with Steven this year so this whole thing is a really big deal.
