Mike Patton – Adult Themes For Voice (1996)

Oh shit fam, Mike Patton, that guy from Faith No More? Yeah, he’s done a suuuuuper weird record on the side! It sounds nothing like FNM LOL he’s bonkers!

Adult Themes For Voice was recorded on tour by Patton in a series of hotels rooms or whatever, and is a record built entirely out of vocal samples. Yeah, it sounds like complete shit at first but yknow, maybe I’m growing my Covid19 hipster lockdown beard too much but fuck can you always count on this guy to push the boundaries of what is considered music – or even noise. Like, let’s just stop, take a deep breath, and focus entirely on what is going on here. What the fuck IS going on here? You’re guess is as good as mine, but I appreciate the effort involved.
