Patton, Doseone, Adebimpe Collaborate

 

Will it be insane or just
inane?

 

By Brian Creech

 

 

 

There’s been a bit of internet buzz in recent days about a
possible collaboration between Mike Patton, TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe,
and Subtle’s Adam “Doseone” Drucker. 
When they come together, these masters of the human voice box (and to
some the universe) form what Pitchfork has called “one of those Yngwie
Malmsteen/Steve Vai/Joe Satriani[esque] superjams, minus the old man
smell.” 

 

 

No willing to speculate on Mike Patton’s smell, Adebimpe
mentioned the collaboration in an interview with The Onion’s AV club.  Details are still fuzzy, but Adebimpe has said
the three are “working on a project that I’m thinking will congeal toward the
end of the year. It came from an idea that Adam had, to have the three of us
just, basically, mess around vocally and see what comes of it.”

 

 

This could be a scary and destructive prospect, given the range
each man is capable of and their overwhelming, ear-shattering tendencies.  Have you heard Mike Patton’s scream from “I
am Legend”?  He alone is capable of
making sounds that cross into the realms of inhumanity.  The expectations are high, and we’ll be sure
to report any mind-blowing that may occur. 

 

 

While we all sit around and fantasize about the limitless
possibilities of this project, TVOTR have an album out, Dear Science, and kick off their tour October 10th.  Mike Patton is getting bands together for the
Nightmare before Christmas ATP, which he will co-curate with the Melvins, and
Subtle go on tour in November.
