John Zorn's Moonchild w/ Mike Patton, John Medeski, Trevor Dunn, and Joey Baron

Sunday, Sep 29, 2013 10:30p
Le Poisson Rouge New York, NY

TEMPLARS—In Sacred Blood
The 6th CD in the Moonchild legacy is a testament-tribute to the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and the Temple of Solomon. Patton’s versatility is at its peak, and he sings everything from Gregorian Chants and atonal melodies to hardcore screams and passionate whispers. The evocative organ of John Medeski adds a deeply religious tone to the drama, and the Dunn-Baron rhythm section is at its raging best!

Feb 29, 2008 - Zombie Chow on Mike Patton
Musician, Genius, God

There's very few things in this world of true quality. Mike is one of those things.

He is not a man, he is not a human, he's what happens when you combine the DNA of an opera singer, punk, 40's crooner, several powertools, and a kiwi fruit.

If you want to have sinatra sung better than sinatra, or Ozzie sung better than Ozzie, or you're just interested in what the sound a pair of rodents of any species, two 12mm wrenches, and a lemon sounds like in a blender that's being tossed into a wood chipper with a cow, a duck, and 3 siamese cats in heat sounds like... This is your guy, he'll do all that while washing it all down with a nice healthy slurp of piss from his own shoe, and repeat it in any key...

Really glad Mike didn't burn out or go druggie suicide like so many artists, and I hope he continues to produce more and experiment more. Now he's doing opera, F'ing Opera! And when he's not working with any of his 5+ bands or music projects he's busy gaming it up, or hell adding his voice to games... I have come to the conclusion that He doesn't sleep.

Five stars, if I could go Higher I would. I've rarely in my life reviewed anything close to a five star rating, I take little reviews no matter how hidden or irrelevant they seem very seriously. This man is a guy that defines the uper end of so many scales, and should set an example of what's possible to accomplish in ones' life.
