Earlier this month MR. BUNGLE jammed a handful of reunion shows, the group’s first live performances in roughly 20 years. If a new social media post is an indicator, Mr. Bungle are returning to recording for real. This is not a hoax… or is it?
Yesterday, the band tweeted an image of a recording studio console (you might notice that two of its channels are labeled “Trey” and “Scott”).
They did not mention any additional information.
“Mr. Bungle’s sound and approach is a unique mix of the experimental, the abstract, and the absurd (in other words, the finer things in life). It all began in 1985, in a small California town named Eureka. The group (bassist Trevor Dunn, drummer Danny Heifetz, alto saxophonist Theo Lengyel, tenor saxophonist/clarinetist Clinton McKinnon, vocalist Mike Patton, and guitarist Trey Spruance) met while in high school and took their moniker from an extremely corny children’s educational film regarding bad habits (it was featured in a Pee Wee Herman HBO special back in the early ’80s). The group’s first demo, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny, was recorded around this time, and soon others followed: Bowl of Chiley, Goddammit I Love America!, and OU818.” – All Music
