Fantomas -- Toronto, Ontario -- December 7th, 1999

Iíd seen Mr. Bungle about a month before this show. And like I said in that review it was the best show Iíve ever seen in my life and started a Mike Patton love affair that lasted until Tomahawks second album. I donít even know if Iíd heard the entire Fantomas album at this point but I knew Patton was in this band, and I knew that Dave Lombardo was in it and Buzz from the Melvins, all bands I liked so I figured why not go.

The opener was a dude with a laptop called Kid606 who was signed to Pattonís Ipecac records at the time. His music was like a more broken sounding Aphex Twin. Just heavily distorted and spastic techno. It really didnít go over very well with the crowd. But I give the guy credit for having the balls to go up there all by himself in front of a crowd who wanted nothing to do with him and play music he enjoyed.

I know Buzz came out to do his own sound check, and I think Dave and Trevor may have too. Patton obviously didnít.

This show was an awesome and totally different experience from Mr. Bungle a month earlier. Instead of the circus of Mr. Bungle this was more akin to any metal show in a small club, just with some really famous people playing it. I somehow ended up right at the rail in front of Patton and it was pretty painful, but I wasnít fucking moving. He was very odd, to say the least. He had this miniature cat on his keyboard and he kept petting it and saying ďkittyĒ in the very creepy voice. But I donít think he was doing it for effect or for the crowd or anything. Some girl even jumped on stage at one point and tried to pet the kitty and he slapped her hand away and scolded her.

I have no idea why they played the whole album in order except the last four songs, and why they wouldn't have played Page 30. The Slayer medley got the crowd insane. I think they played segments and riffs from Criminally Insane, Angel of Death, Postmortem, Altar of Sacrifice and Necrophobic.

I'm jealous you got to see Mike Patton in his prime several times. I missed the FNM reunion, i'm hoping they do a Tomahawk tour sometime soon.
