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".

  •   joshuastluke In a strange twist of fate, I became friends with Trey through the Orthodox Church. 4w
  •   recapmodotti @joshuastluke Really?! My friend's son couldn't go and we ended up having an extra ticket. I thought of you but assumed you probably couldn't make it on short notice. Had I known, I definitely would have asked you. They were so amazing. 4w
  •   joshuastluke Everyone is sick here, so I wouldn't have been able to go. I appreciate the thought, though! Yeah, it was a very surreal set of circumstances. A buddy up in Santa Barbara introduced me to "Trey, his friend from church". Once I made the connection, I tried to play it cool, haha. He's a really sweet guy. Some of the most intriguing conversations I've had have been with him. 4w

selfawareinsect can't get over the greatness that occurred last night. first time ever seeing zorn preform live and his first time in los angeles in 25 years! the man changed the world of music and is one of the hardest working artists out there. after abraxas and secret chiefs 3 each played a handful of zorn compositions, he played sax with dave lombardo of slayer and bill laswell in his group bladerunner to end the show. i was beginning to think i may never see him play in this lifetime. i hope to see him many more times, but can now officially scratch that off my bucket list! #zorn #abraxas #secretchiefs3 #bladerunner #masada #jazz #sax #sc3 #slayer #saxophone #johnzorn 4w
  •   zarookian Cool and i love bill laswell! 4w
  •   petviral That was an awesome show! Did u stay for the hermetic organ? 4w
  •   selfawareinsect @petviral Yeah it was! I didn't stay for the organ show, did you? Few of my friends did and said it was great. Wish I would have went to the lacma performances he did earlier that day as well 4w
  •   petviral The organ was mesmerizing. The lacma performance would have been amazing. 4w
