Last weeks poll asked what was your favorite Mike Patton project?
Personally I’m a Tomahawk fan, but it came as no surprise to me to see that Faith No More won the poll. Faith No More were pretty much a defining band for me as a teenager. Without them, and particularly Angel Dust I probably would never got into Heavy Music at all, and would be stuck in the purgatory of Def Leppard and Bon Jovi.
Still, my love of The Jesus Lizard and Helmet make me love Tomahawk in a way only rivalled by Tool.
In reality tough, there are few Mike Patton projects I don’t like. I’ve seen Mr Bungle live twice, and both times would be in my top 10 of live shows ever, especially the show from the California tour.
Here are the results:
- Faith No More 188 Votes
- Mr Bungle 70 Votes
- Fantomas 67 Votes
- Tomahawk 58 Votes
- Red Hot Chilli Peppers 49 Votes
- Peeping Tom 18 Votes
- Lovage 8 Votes
- General Patton vs. The X-ecutioners 2 Votes
- Maldoror 1 Vote
- Various Solo Albums No Votes!
For the first time ever, one of the items received no votes! I really didn’t thing the Mike Patton Solo stuff was that bad!
New poll coming soon!
No one voted for Maldoror except me… People don’t like to get their ears cleansed, I reckon. And prefer to keep listening to dirt music.
