Another day, another Patton project.


Less than one week after the release of the self-titled Nevermen release, Ipecac have announced that Patton will return on 1 April with is Patton/Kaada project. Patton will again team up with Norwegian composer John Kaada for their first collaborative album in 12 years, Bacteria Cult.

“Working with John Kaada on this latest release was an honor and pure pleasure,” Mike Patton says in a press release. “His compositions have always resonated deeply with me and his orchestral arrangements for this project are harmonically dense and delicious! Each individual piece is so well constructed and inventively assembled that my vocal passages practically sang themselves. I’m hoping very much that we can seduce some eardrums and welcome listeners into this lush sonic ‘otherworld.’”

Bacteria Cult track list:
1. Red Rainbow
2. Black Albino
3. Peste Bubonica
4. Papillon
5. Dispossession
6. A Burnt Out Case
7. Imodium
8. Fountain Gasoline

BBC 6 Music Cares a Lot

Faith No More made the news in the UK this morning when BBC 6 Music kicked off their Breakfast Show with We Care a Lot. The song presaged BBC radio 2 light entertainment presenter Jeremy Vine briefly stepping in to present the 6 Music show in the absence of ill regular presenter Shaun Keaveney.
The Independent reported:

BBC 6 Music listeners were left confused on Wednesday morning when Jeremy Vine opened the Breakfast Show in place of usual presenter Shaun Keaveny.
“Well, good morning and welcome to 6 Music Breakfast. [Keaveny] is off today, it’s a bit of a sniffle and a snuffle, so the brave little soldier is tucked up in bed,” Vine told listeners.
“They called me and they said ‘Can you come in because Sean wants you to sit in the golden chair?’ I’m so proud.”
The presenter then proceeded to “rock this joint” by kickstarting the day’s music with a track from American band Faith No More.
