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.

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!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential reading for any fan of either band 22 mai 2014
Par Aron Nemeth - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This works best as a companion piece to Steffan Chirazi's "The Real Story" from many years earlier. This is far more professional looking/reading, although better pictures (as that book has) would be welcome.

I wasn't sure how the back/forth between the two bands would work (obviously this is at it's most effective if you're a fan of both bands), but that actually ended up being one of the most interesting things about it. Even if you prefer one over the other, it becomes clear that you can't get a true, honest understanding of either band without hearing about the other. I enjoyed Prato putting in his own personal experiences here and there, but was glad he didn't overdo it.

I would have liked for a wider range of those around and influenced by the band to have been included (the guy's from Primus seemed an odd exclusion). Prato kept returning to the same guys, which are fine but at times felt as if I wanted a new person's perspective.

Overall an entertaining and easy read that really drives home the point about how important both of these bands have become.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 No new info, and too much outsider opinion 26 mai 2014
Par Rich L. - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There's no new info here-the interviews quoted are all old. As such, if you've kept up with FNM/Bungle/Patton over the past 20+ years then you've already read this stuff before. The author leans towards the more sensational quotes. I can't say I blame him for that-it's what makes people read and buy these type of books-but It would've been nice to have more contemporary interviews with the band members involved so you could get a looking back perspective on albums/tours/etc. Instead of that, you get multiple opinions from other musicians, and frankly, I could care less what some guy from Korn thinks about Mr. Bungle. Granted, this guy made the effort that nobody else has done yet to collect all this info into book form, but at the same time, I feel ripped off for spending money on a book of quotes collected from the internet. Yes, Mr. Prato did conduct several interviews with these people throughout the years, but without any new perspective to give the book some depth, it all falls flat.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential for an REAL Faith No More/Bungle Fan 23 décembre 2013
Par Eric G. Peterson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have just begun reading this book, but I'm already impressed with the amount of interesting interviews/insights and background information the author has managed to put together for this book. Any fan of either Faith No More or Mr. Bungle, (if your a fan of one I'd be willing to venture you're a fan of both bands) should be thrilled that the author, Greg Prato, has taken the time to make such a comprehensive book. I am certainly excited to continue reading this and then pick up another of this author's books in the near future! It really is a no brainer if you like one of the most underrated bands of all time, FNM.
