Mondo Cane (Band).

Postby DeathBeforeDenial » Mon May 18, 2009 10:29 pm

Mike Patton (ex. Faith No More) has recorded some amazing renditions of 50's, 60's and 70's Italian pop tunes with like a 30 piece orchestra and is going to be releasing it at some point, hopefully this year as a project called "Mondo Cane".

It's really amazing music and Patton's vocals are just fantastic. He carries a lot of his personality through and it's great to hear a guy mostly associated with rock music to be involved in something like this rather than reaching a point of stagnation.

The video is in 16 parts (I think), but the link has them all in a playlist. I highly suggest checking it out, there are some beautifully rendered Italian classics in there.

Hah, you just made my day!

It's not every day I see someone who likes Mr. Bungle, in my opinion, one of the all-time great musical acts for their creativity and raw ability. My favorite of their three full-length albums is definitely "Disco Volante", though the others are almost as good.

i guess WD's not into Patton, bummer.

i like disco volante, but i think califorina gets the win in my book their catchy and weird but its never too much. i love the doo-wop song i think its called vanity fair.
