Mike Patton - Pranzo Oltranzista (CD, 1997)

When compared to Adult Themes for Voice, this CD is downright melodic.

Performed by a five-piece ensemble that includes both Patton and consummate weirdo John Zorn, this album is experimental, for sure, but maybe not quite as experimental as Patton has been known to get. Still, it won't be the soundtrack to your next dinner party.

Some tracks really utilize the instruments (guitar, cello, sax, percussion), while others feature glasses clinking and what sounds like someone biting down on hard candy. Oh, Patton, you goofball.

This thing looks sweet on my shelf, though. And I'm just shallow enough to care about something like that.

Cannot find a lick of audio for this one.
