Before he joined Faith No More, a young Mike Patton formed Mr. Bungle with high school friends Trey Spruance and Trevor Dunn. In fact, Patton first saw Faith No More at a pizza place in his hometown of Eureka, California.
Mr. Bungle was a crazy band. They would cycle through heavy metal, ska, improvisational jazz, disco and funk within the span of a single song. After releasing a few demos in the 1980s, Mr. Bungle landed a Warner Bros. deal and put out three albums in the ’90s before going on hiatus. A chance encounter brought them back together to perform their 1986 demo tape, “The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny,” in full, backed by special guests Scott Ian of Anthrax and Slayer’s Dave Lombardo.
Grunge godfathers Melvins and local punk band Cunts open the show.
