Mike Patton spoke with MovieWeb in a Q&A, where the Faith No More frontman talked about doing the soundtrack for ‘The Solitude of Prime Numbers’, a film based on Paolo Giordano’s Italian novel. Patton also talked about scoring ‘A Perfect Place’ in 2008 and ‘Crank High Voltage’ in 2009.
“Yeah. I did have the visuals. But I started writing it before I’d seen the visuals,” Patton said about the process of doing the score for ‘The Solitude of Prime Numbers’. “I had read the script. I met the director. And I thought it would be a fun thing to do. Then I went out and got the book. After I read the book…I actually read the book in English and Italian…I was getting musical ideas while I was reading this book. It really hit me. It is beautiful writing. It’s really strong.”

Peeping Tom guitarist Gerasimos Grammenos spoke with Beat magazine about that other more widely known Peeping Tom band fronted by former Faith No More singer Mike Patton. “Mike Patton had a vision for a band called Peeping Tom many years ago, but we had a vision for Peeping Tom even before him,” Grammenos explained. “He spoke about a band called Peeping Tom; we actually put out recordings under that name. When our Myspace page was taken off us for breach of copyright no one explained who it was that initiated that action, but I love a conspiracy theory.” Asked about possible legal action over the name, he responded, “I don’t have the money too initiate that kind of action, nor do I have the passion to strip anyone of a name. I can answer one though, so if anyone wants to challenge the name Peeping Tom, they should do so.”

Former Faith No More frontman Mike Patton, now with Tomahawk, tells Katy St. Clair of the Cleveland Scene that his extreme work ethic has posed problems for his relationships. “I’m a lifer,” he says. “I think, in order to do that, you have to make a lot of sacrifices. That means personal things, that means relationships, a lot of things. But with me, that’s my baggage, that’s my thing. I’m gonna work too much, I’m gonna be completely self-absorbed — I’m gonna be a fu**ing a**hole, and that’s just the way it is. Anybody that’s decent at anything is pretty selfish. They gotta be. I’m not in this to be a good guy.” Clevescene.com has since removed the article.
Jeff Niesel of the Cleveland Free Times spoke with Tomahawk’s Duane Denison, formerly of Jesus Lizard, on being with the new band and having new frontman Mike Patton of Faith No More fame. Denison admits things are a lot different with Patton as opposed to Jesus Lizard frontman David Yow. “For one thing, he can sing when he wants to,” Denison says. “I’m not dissing Yow. Mike [Patton] can do melodic things more consistently, especially live. Yow’s a great frontman, and he had a unique vocal style as well. But there were things he wasn’t so good at, and he would be the first to admit it. This band frees me up and I can write a wider variety of stuff.” Freetimes.com has since removed the article.
Metal Hammer reports that contrary to their report yesterday that ex Faith No More frontman and now Tomahawk lead singer Mike Patton was arrested for urinating on photographers at London Astoria, the singer actually got away. Drummer John Stanier revealed, “I was sure he was fu**ed, but Mike just ran off and jumped into a cab!” The band’s show on Monday went off without incident.
