Présentation de l'éditeur

Place any musical style in front of Faith No More, and seemingly, a timeless song of their own would soon be created. Between 1985-1997, Faith No More issued six full-length recordings (including such classic titles as 'The Real Thing' and 'Angel Dust') and in the process, influenced countless musicians throughout the world. But that's not to say it was smooth sailing - members coming and going, inter-band bickering, never being the toast of the critics, etc. And much of the same could be said about the zanier Mr. Bungle, which also featured FNM singer Mike Patton. Now, for the first time ever, there is a book that explores and analyzes both bands' histories - 'The Faith No More & Mr. Bungle Companion.' Interviews include: Wes Borland (Black Light Burns/Limp Bizkit), Max Cavalera (Soulfly/ex-Sepultura), Johnny Christ (Avenged Sevenfold), Gilby Clarke (ex-Guns N' Roses), Everlast (House of Pain/solo artist), Mike Fleischmann (Vision of Disorder), John Garcia (Vista Chino/ex-Kyuss), Mitts (Madball), Angelo Moore (Fishbone), Jason Newsted (Newsted/ex-Metallica), Travis Stever (Coheed and Cambria), Kim Thayil (Soundgarden), Devin Townsend (Devin Townsend Project/ex-Strapping Young Lad), Ville Valo (HIM), and Jeff Walker (Carcass). Finally, a complete and thorough overview of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle's careers…strap yourself in and/or hold on tight!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A collection of information does not make a book 9 décembre 2013
Par Rahry McYellerson - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
While the book is certainly informative and is deserving of four stars, I have subtracted a star for Greg Prato's amateur writing style. The book is supposed to be about Faith No More and Mr. Bungle, yet at times it seems more like Prato is more interested in making it about himself. Perhaps he should have waited to release the Greg Prato Companion to the Faith No More & Mr. Bungle companion, preferably as a blog so we wouldn't have had to be subjected to it should we have so chosen.

Some of the interview subjects are clueless when it comes to the bands, especially Everlast who talks about "Mike Patton and that drummer with the dreads" at one point. Seriously? Mike Bordin is a key member of the band and I'd have thought that a hip-hop artist would have been far more interested in the drummer than he appears to be. I realize that Mike Patton is the obvious connection between the two bands and has a huge fanbase, but there is no reason not to be more informed than that. It's almost like Greg Prato just interviewed whomever he could and tossed Everlast in there because he thought that (lol) someone might buy the book because of what the former House of Pain member thought.

The quotes at the end of the book are haphazardly arranged and seem like they were just tossed in there because Prato couldn't find a place to insert them in the book and wanted to fill some space. I get that he wanted to use all of the quotes he got, but sometimes you've got to leave material on the cutting room floor.

Lastly, I again understand the connection between the bands is Mike Patton but it seems wrong to make the book about Faith No More/Mr. Bungle and not include some of his other projects. Yes, I know they're briefly mentioned. Perhaps Prato could have taken a little more time and fleshed out information on the other bands to create the Mike Patton Companion, which is really what this book should have been.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 providing plenty of good insight into the history 30 juin 2014

A deeply troubled book. It has a reasonably coherent, linear flow, providing plenty of good insight into the history, process & personality behind the bands & their albums, but the writing is atrocious. An inconsistent, remedial comprehension of the language & its conventions makes this a jarring read. And the thought process behind how he chose other musicians to quote is pretty mysterious.

Music journalist Greg Prato draws upon numerous sources including his own first-hand interviews to tell the story of two ground-breaking and highly influential bands - Faith No More & Mr. Bungle. Linked together by their shared, enigmatic vocalist, Mike Patton naturally gets some special attention (including the cover and an entire chapter on S*** Terrorism!) Everyone gets time in the spotlight here, however. Learn the story of both bands from the words and tales of the musicians themselves. Relive the impact their music and live performances had upon their peers in the music business, musicians like Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit, Kim Thayil of Soundgarden, and Jason Newsted of Metallica (among many) who themselves went on to define the Rock of the 90’s. Learn how Patton eventually joined FNM via an early Mr. Bungle demo tape. Read about the tensions during the recording and touring of FNM’s “Angel Dust” that led to Jim Martin’s ouster, and the subsequent ‘revolving-door’ succession of guitarists that included Mr. Bungle’s Trey Spruance on “King For a Day, Fool For a Lifetime”. Learn about Mr. Bungle’s radical transformation from the Funk-Ska-Rock of their first album (recorded under the tutelage of John Zorn) to the Avant Noise-Rock masterpiece of “Disco Volante”, to the Beach-Prog-Pop of “California”. Laugh as Mike Patton insults Axel Rose nightly from the stage during FNM’s tour with Guns-N-Roses, and shake your head with wonder and / or disgust as he and Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron drop turds into hotel vents for later guests to smell! Follow the story through FNM’s break-up to their subsequent reunion and tour; through Mr. Bungle’s dissipation following their successful “California” tour, to Mike Patton’s formation of Fantomas. As a huge fan of Mr. Bungle my only criticism of the book would be its - to me - disproportional emphasis on Faith No More. That, however, is strictly a matter of taste, as author Greg Prato makes it clear that his own taste and interest lay more heavily with the FNM side of things. I DO recommend this book to any and all fans of both bands (and all who enjoy the solo work and side projects of all the musicians involved) as a highly entertaining read, and as the one-of-a-kind invaluable source that it is. Buy, Read, and Enjoy!
