• Xtreme Music – where music meets spirituality – have a new publication The Spiritual Significance of Music Metal Edition. It features a short interview on the subject with Bill Gould. Full interview here. Sample quote: “I haven’t been able to observe any positive correlation between the quality of music and the spirituality of it’s performers.”
  • The Philip Freeman book Sound Levels which features an in-depth (around 17 pages) article on Mike Patton is now available to download online for £3.56 at Lulu. The article largely focuses on Fantomas and Patton’s creative process and is certainly recommended for Patton fans.  Sample quote: “A lot of people assume that if I’m doing something that isn’t ‘fuck you’ from top to bottom, then I’ve lost my edge, or there’s nothing interesting about what I’m doing anymore.”
