Mike Patton's not well
« on: September 15, 2021, 11:48:07 AM »
A load of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle dates cancelled less than 48 hours before the first one. I was trying to explain to my gf last night (who isn't much familiar with MP) that he's almost never sincere in public, so that means he really must be in a bad way. Get well soon Mike!

"Sorry to report that due to mental health reasons, I cannot continue with the currently scheduled Faith No More and Mr. Bungle dates.
I have issues that were exacerbated by the pandemic that are challenging me right now. I don’t feel I can give what I should at this point and I am not going to give anything less than 100 percent. I am sorry to our fans and hope to make it up to you soon.
The bands’ support me in this decision and we look forward to working through this in a healthy way.

Patton's very private, so it's difficult (and unfair) to speculate on exactly what's been going on.
Good on him for being so honest about his MH though.

Oh man. I don't think Patton's ever cancelled shows for personal reasons, even sickness. He did seem uncharacteristically concerned about COVID and returning to live shows in some of the interviews he's given over the past year ("uncharacteristically" in the sense that he's someone who used to get audience members to spit in his open mouth and drank pee out of their shoes), but I don't know if that's what this is all about. Just a man, after all. Hope he gets well.

Yeah, worringly i think this is a first. I'm wondering if it's stress related due to the long gap between live performances and the fact it's only a couple of days before the first FNM shows.

Get well Mike!

It's easy to imagine someone as notoriously active and "workaholic" as Patton being massively thrown off by the sudden, forced halt of the pandemic - especially with all the shifting uncertainty surrounding when things will be able to resume. So little is known about his personal life, though (which is a "good thing" according to Buzz Osborne), that it's hard (and probably stupid) to make any assumptions either way.

Played “Carry Stress in the Jaw” to a friend with very mainstream tastes the other day. He hated it and asked me to turn it off, and that made me happy.

That's unfair, I think. His vocal stylings have been running on fumes for a while now but he's got plenty to offer soundtrack wise. I'd like to see Fantomas resurrected as well. Wouldn't honestly say no to new FNM either.

Tomahawk can go to bed now though, please.

i'd love him to prove me wrong but Mondo Cane is his last worthwile project and it was made ten years ago. the bungle reformation pisses me off, such a waste of time

True, and they're milking the shit out of it too. The re-recorded demo has grown on me a little but I've got zero interest in them doing anything else with that lineup..

Trey's sitting on a mountain of unreleased Secret Chiefs stuff, apparently. Would love to see some of that get out. The world needs a UR album.

Didn't the Bungle reunion happen after Patton and Dunn worked with Trey on Secret Chiefs stuff?
That must have been after Malkhut and pre-pandemic.

Not sure, but it wouldn't surprise me.

I know what you mean. I like the record and i'm glad they did it, but it should have just been treated like the minor side project that it is.

This is a bit of a shock to hear, he's always seemed to take things in his stride and come across as decidedly non-angsty. Noodle Lizard made the good point about being forced to stay home as a notorious workaholic, goes to show the psychological effect this bloody pandemic has had on everyone. Get well soon Mike in any case.
