Final evening, on the closing cease of The Geek Present tour with Spotlights, the Melvins, and Mr. Bungle, followers acquired a particular deal with as Buzz Osbourne, Trey Spruance, Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn, Dave Lombardo, and Scott Ian stared the stage in Oakland, California for a particular deal with.
The ultimate music of the present ended up being a particular rendition of Fantômas’ “Experiment in Terror” off the band’s 2001 traditional, Director’s Lower. That complete document was the band’s tackle numerous songs from film soundtracks and the one they carried out final evening was based mostly on the Henry Mancini music that was written for the Nineteen Sixties film of the identical title.
Whereas that is such a cool state of affairs for quite a few causes, it’s particularly superior as a result of Fantômas hasn’t performed a present stay since 2017, in keeping with Setlist.FM.
Naturally, since this wasn’t a Fantômas present, it’s lacking a number of the further bells and whistles that Patton tends to sprinkle all through the band’s efficiency by the usage of numerous synths and different items of tech. Nonetheless, it’s superior to listen to them play that music 22 years after its preliminary launch. (Jesus, I’m getting outdated…)
So yeah, that’s actual thrilling. Right here’s hoping Mr. Bungle will get to do some extra particular shit once they head out to the east coast for the primary time in additional than 20 years this September.
