Links for a day (vol.13)

  • There’s a great disinterred interview with the band from 1995 with Phil Sutcliffe on The Quietus this week. Sample quote: Lyrical analysis is always off-limits with Patton. All he will say, when pressed about writing the words for The Real Thing, his first album with the band, is that “It was no big deal, I’d just gotten out of school then so I probably approached it the same way as doing a project”.
  • Mike Patton has been voted the sixth best heavy metal and hard rock vocalist of all time by a Turkish music magazine, as reported by Blabbermouth.
  • Highly-regarded London-based review site musicOMH reviews the The Very Best Definitive Ultimate Greatest Hits Collection, which was released in the UK on Monday 1 June. The review is succinctly positive on the music but less so on the very existence of the album: “Despite the musical brilliance on display, this album smells like a cash cow”.
