DOWNLOAD John Zorn - Lilin (MP3)

You know what really sucks? Peeping Tom sucks. (above video also seen on Stereogum & Blabbermouth)

Mike Patton (who I like less-and-less) is playing with frequent-collaborator John Zorn @ Tonic in NYC on New Years Eve, again.

Nels Cline (Wilco) is playing the John Zorn-owned NYC club The Stone on December 28th with Zeena Parkins (2 shows), and again on December 29th with Vinny Goila and Ken Filiano. Other Nels dates here.

The Stone has four special benefit shows coming up on December 25th (Christmas day) and December 30th (New Years eve-eve). The two shows on Christmas will feature "Many special guest and surprises", and for the shows on the 30th we should "Expect anyone and anything in this final 2006 Stone extravaganza!"

Review of Wolfmother's recent sold-out show at Hammerstein Ballroom here.

Aww, somebody's feelings get hurt 'cause Mikey doesn't like Wolfmother?

not only that but wolfmother IS a 70's rehash cover band...what was that band, the darkness? BV, you should have better taste than that.

I thought that was Led Zeppelin playing in the background. Then I realized that Mike Patton is a genius.

Um... Wolfmother sucks! I think I just might gouge my eyes out if I hear that fookin' "Woman" song again. Why? It sucks!

i love all the folks who rake bands like wolfmother over the coals while they lay on their back praying for a bukkake courtesy of spencer, alec, win, lily, tapes n tapes or whatever the indie soup de jour is. what happened to liking rock and roll?

Posted by boner stabone | December 12, 2006 10:07 AM

Zorn has more talent in his left nostril then the entire wolfmother band.

Posted by Nicholas | December 12, 2006 10:13 AM

ALL WOLF___ BANDS SUCK! Especially WOLFMOTHER! YAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWN. "Indie" bandwagon.

Mike Patton, on the other hand, dares to do something that isn't guaranteed to be used for steakhouse commercials, computer commercials, suv commercials, nasdaq commercials...in other words...peeping tom might be a little shite-y, but commercial it ain't.

"what happened to liking rock and roll?"

You're right. Can't lump wolfmother in with the bland-ass prairie shit trap that a lot of indie bands fall into. But, the snob in me can't BEAR any more bands with animals in their names! MAKE IT STOP FOR THE LOVE OF MUSIC!

Posted by Rena | December 12, 2006 10:44 AM

We have sent to you, Wolfmother our only band, to save you from the evils of indie rock. feel free to persecute them. no matter what you might do to them they will always ROCK!

Posted by The Gods of ROCK | December 12, 2006 11:17 AM

this is not about whether Wolfmother sucks. It's about Mike Patton sounding like a dick, and it's true, Peeping Tom does suck. Mike Patton should have more taste than that.

Posted by Anonymous | December 12, 2006 11:47 AM

So because Mike Patton doesn't like Wolfmother, and is honest about it, he "sucks" and "[sounds] like a dick?" And Peeping Tom "does suck?"

So that makes you guys, what, "dicks?"

Oh please. Hate to break it to you, but lots of people out there think that "real rock n roll" is nothing close to the hipster schlock of Wolfmother or the buzz-bin indie darlings you name above. Get over yourself, please.

Posted by Brian | December 12, 2006 12:58 PM

Hahahaha. Wolfmother.... pwned.

Sure, Peeping Tom was a disappointment... but, c'mon. Mike Patton is fucking PROLIFIC. That's one disappointing project on the side of, what... 5 awesome innovative projects? Wolfmother, however..... they've got one shitty project that isn't even half-original.

Posted by Zedd | December 12, 2006 1:01 PM

Sure it's an old clip, but his initial reaction to hearing Wolfmother in the background is hilarious no matter what you think of Patton or Wolfmother (I could have lived with him saying 'Wolfmother you suck' but man is that reaction funny)

Posted by klaus_kinski | December 12, 2006 1:09 PM

Wolfmother's CD - I could take it or leave it, but I liked seeing them live.

Mike Patton - I love him all the way back to Faith No More, but seeing Peeping Tom live was pretty painful.

More painful though was listening to him make an ass of himself in the above video. He comes off like a total jerk in my opinion.

also - I never claimed the above video was breaking news. Why do some people feel the need to post a comment like "old news" when I talk about something didn't happen yesterday?

can't we all just get along?

Posted by brooklynvegan | December 12, 2006 1:09 PM

I thought Peeping Tom live at Warsaw Theatre was pretty f'in righteous (not to mention Dub Trio). But, hey, to each his own.

Posted by Brian | December 12, 2006 1:54 PM

uh, mike patton is not good AT ALL

Right... and that Wolfmother just ROCKS my hipster balls off!

Posted by Brian | December 12, 2006 6:31 PM

wolfmother sucks, bottom line, fucking retard music. mike patton has every right to say that about them. fuck wolfmother and all this shit rock and roll 70s carbon copies...leave zeppelin in the past.

Posted by jake | December 12, 2006 9:47 PM

Everyone likes what ~they~ like. That's why we're all not walking around listening to on our Ipod's.

Everyone has the right to say just about anything they like, at almost any given time, in almost anywhere they want to.

I'm a Patton fan, I like diversity and originality.

I also saw his movie "Firecracker". And I'm not above saying something sucks, when it does... it did, he doesn't, and Wolfmother will always.

God love the USA!

You want it all, but you can't have it

Zep Rules!!

Posted by Ballz McGee | December 17, 2006 8:11 PM

since when does mike patton give a shit about being tactful?

weather you like peeping tom or not, mike patton has created some of the most original, innovative music of the past century. In my books he has earned the right to air his grievances whenever he pleases...and he always does anyway.

Posted by crankyfrekles | December 27, 2006 2:16 AM

Wolfmother owns Zeppelin - They have reinvented the genre.

I can't wait for their rehash of Physical Graffiti!

Oh boy, Oh boy - another slick packaged rehash for oily skinned teens to slit their wrists to!

Reminds me of the trench coat kids getting on stage at the high school talent show as we're all forced to sit through that and some god awful piano recital by a girl in a head brace.

Sheesh...

I'd rather listen to the wiggles soundtrack than hear another shitty wolfmother song. These posers are so crap we need a new word to define just how crap they are.

Posted by jos | February 1, 2007 2:34 AM

The Wiggles are fucking Frank Zappa style calibre in comparison to a band like Wolfmother...

Posted by Bashman | February 13, 2007 9:11 PM

Wolfmother compared to Zeppelin and Deep Purple? Ha, ha. Page and Blackmore could actually play guitar whereas some of Stockdale's solos are utterly abysmal. Many of his poorly executed bends don't reach anywhere near the intended target. And how could anyone mistake Stockdale's voice for Plant's? You'd have to be unconscious. Deep Purple too comprised highly skilled players so to compare Wolfmother, as some do, just because they have a keyboard player is like comparing my stick man drawings to Renoir because we both have hands. Wolfmother has to be one of the worst bands I have ever had the misfortune of hearing. I'd rather you place my gonads in a floury bap and have you shout, "Hey, Fido, your dinner's ready" to your pet Rottweiller than hear their garbled, cheap and technically incompetent efforts egain.

Who cares if Patton loves or hates Wolfmother, address the matter at hand. Mike Patton is a boring cunt who produces PROLIFIC amounts of mediocre (at best) noise. He is a marketing icon, not a musical icon. Just like IPOD's, because youve all been told so so many times by the voices in your TV that Patton (and indeed Ipods) are great you start to believe it. Not to mention he is a fucking thief. Peeping Tom are a band from Australia, been playing for about 10 years, two releases, first one in '02 only reason he can even use the name is because he has the cash and access to souless US lawyers so he can "buy" whatever reality he decides is the flavour he wants. Go Patton! Assault our ears with more pedestrian rubbish, you are a cancer that exclusively attacks quality sounds

amen. patton is a fuck. just look at him in the video. or any other video he's been in for that matter. who the hell is he to rip on a band like wolfmother?

Posted by Anonymous | July 1, 2007 12:20 AM

do you even know who mike patton is you fucking douche?

you don't have to like mr. bungle or fantomas or faith no more, but if you can't respect the talent, then all i can say is whatever, have fun drooling your way through life.

Posted by Andrew Chase | October 7, 2007 3:56 AM

It all comes full circle, doesn't it. Wasn't it 1989-90 that Anthony Kiedis was complaining that Mike Patton was ripping HIM off, and taking all HIS style, delivery and moves.

Posted by Explosivo | April 22, 2008 10:39 PM

I know Patton is brilliant. I liked Peeping Tom. It surprises me so many people dislike it, but then again, maybe you're just not fans of that kind of music. I don't like everything he's ever written, but Peeping Tom is good.

I dislike Wolfmother. I am Australian and I am not ashamed to admit that Wolfmother sucks. We have other bands - all I have to care about are the good ones.

I laughed hysterically the first couple of times I saw this clip. He's a dick for being so blunt, but he's right. Wolfmother DOES suck.

Funny video. Ant he is right :)

Explosivo you goose - can't you identify parody when you see it. The chilli peppers are crap & bungle outstripped them by the end of quote unquote & leaves them wayyyyyyyyyy behind in everything else they ever did - there is no comparison - oh by the way Flea is the most basic bass player there ever was - Dunn runs rings around flea's floppy sock piece - "oh here's another chillipeppers song" "whacka whacka slappa slappa" Anthony Kiedis could you please get back under that bridge & OD on smack & leave us alone you tosser!!!!!!

Posted by Anthony Kiedis softy wimpy | November 6, 2008 9:09 AM

uh, mike patton is not an original , so for the person saying that, sorry its not true, he has taken from a few others, Fantomas was influenced by a few bands and his making noises wtih his voice and whatnot is taken from a few japanese artists, he may be talented and creative, but original he's not sorry, an that meanns he's no genius as well

Posted by mike | November 21, 2010 10:02 PM

I heard about them about 3 months ago in a movie.They were considered to be an original band, that cared for the music and not for the fame.Before the band, Myles worked in graphics, Andrew in photography and Chris was a digital designer.
