Peeping Tom - A Naughty but Nice New Sound

by Alethea (writer), Los Angeles, October 10, 2006


If you're familiar with Mike Patton at all, you may have known him as a singer for Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Lovage, Fantomas, Tomahawk, or other various Patton projects. If not, you have been missing out on one of the musical masterminds of our time.

His latest release is an album entitled Peeping Tom which features the song "Mojo". Patton has a wide range of fellow collaborators that have contributed to the album including Dan the Automator, Rahzel, Bebel Gilberto, Norah Jones, Kool Keith, Massive Attack and others. It seems that only Patton could get Norah to sing a chorus cajoling "What makes you think you're my only lover, The truth hurts don't it Mother F--er...". Even Danny DeVito comes out on the music video for "Mojo".

The end product is a CD that resembles an electronic soul rock fest with rap beat undertones. It's sexy, it's sly and it makes for good listening. Patton claims it's his version of what good "pop" music should be. It's definitely worth a listen.

Hey, you've seen them at LA Weekly Detour right? How is their live performance? I've seen Mr Bungle and Fantomas in Paris and it was awesome!

It was amazing... Mike Patton is quite the live performer & gives it his all... his ensemble was pretty cool too, he had with him the greatest beatboxing female "in the world", she was awesome too. I was entranced.
