Throwback Thursday: Mr. Bungle at the Glass House

Hello, friends. Its been about a couple of weeks since my last feature. I’m so sorry! Do you ever get so overwhelmed you wonder where your time went? Yup, I’m there right now. Anyway, I saved this Throwback Thursday for something really special. A show that I wish I had been able to attend. If there were any band to reunite (other than the Beatles and Led Zeppelin-which we all know is impossible), I would pray to the music gods to bring back Mr. Bungle. Now, I realize that Mr. Bungle is an incredibly eclectic genre of music, and this Throwback Thursday may not appeal to many. However, for my die hard Faith No More/Mr. Bungle/Fantomas/Tomohawk/Lovage/Peeping Tom/Mike Patton fans, this is right up your alley. Comprised of the music god/genius Mike Patton, Trey Spruance, Trevor Dunn and Danny Heifetz, Mr. Bungle took the 90’s underground rock scene by storm. Although Mike Patton’s major project Faith No More was breaking mainstream ground, Mr. Bungle created a cult following all on its own. The ingenious musical composition produced by Mr. Bungle was in an elite category. Right up there with my friends from Failure. So, when I discovered that Mr. Bungle had been to the Glass House in Pomona on August 24th 1999, naturally, I was excited to use this for a Throwback Thursday post. As with many Throwback Thursday posts, I cannot find any video of them at the Glass House (insert crying emoticon here). I do, however, have footage of them in LA that year. Below is a set list from their show at the Glass House and one of my favorite Bungle songs “Pink Cigarette” live at the House of Blues at the end of their “California” tour. ENJOY! I know I am!
