record_junkie Mr Bungle - Disco Volante
If you thought Mr Bungle's self titled debut couldn't get any more weird and experimental, you haven't heard Disco Volante. This uncompromisingly unconventional and unpredictable successor blends a dizzyingly schizophrenic Zorn-esque musical diversity wholly distinct from the debut (though ironically not produced by Zorn like the first album was). It's an avant-garde amalgam of such disparate genres and styles as death metal, hyperspeed bebop jazz, spaced-out electronic, hardcore punk, arabesk, carnival tunes, klezmer, techno beats, film score, lounge grooves, and all sorts of noises, samples, and cartoony effects thrown together into a sort of sonic salmagundi. It both parodies and reveres the genres and styles it employs, successfully weaving the innovative clusterfuck into a semi-coherent package. The awe-inspiring and head-spinning density of each complex composition exhibits the masterful talent of each member of the band. Within this swirling miasma of malevolently manipulated musical nightmares is the infamous Bungle tongue-in-cheek dark humor and psychopathic playfulness. Disco Volante reaches deep into the heart of darkness of Mr Bungle's discography - sandwiched between the bizarre sinister carnival shtick of their debut and the avant-accessible detersion of 1999's California. It's truly Mr Bungle exploring radical new territory at their weirdest and most experimental.
Originally released with a parallel groove of Carry Stress In The Jaw / The Secret Song and a 7" containing Platypus and a track of two movements by The Secret Chiefs Trio (Prelude The Fugue With WB Major and Label Influence). This edition is the Music On Vinyl limited numbered pressing on clear wax limited to 2000, containing The Secret Song following Carry Stress In The Jaw. Unfortunately, Platypus wasn't included with this edition, so I'm still on the hunt for that elusive 7".

gildedmetacarpi Wowzerz, This band is amazing. Mr. Bungle has easily become one of my all time favourite bands, batshit crazy as they are! This album is a great way to get into them, as they defy expectations once again by releasing a "pop" record after the complete insanity of Disco Volante. I still think that one is more definitive of Bungle, but wow this record is incredible. Some of these songs you can't even believe its still Mr. Bungle, they are so beautiful. Superb. #mrbungle #california #mikepatton #treyspruance #trevordunn #dannyheifetz #clintonmckinnon #avantgarde #experimental #1999 #vinyl 1mon

braindeadrichard You know there's something lurking underneath the shape
With a mask over it's head and makeup on his face
Will Warner Brothers put our record on the shelf?
Take a look in the mirror and see the clown in yourself
