It’s fair to say that Mike Patton is one of our generation’s most interesting and unique musicians.

From his early days with Faith No More through to more experimental works with Fantômas and Tomahawk to the more straightforward beats of his work with the X-Ecutioners and as frontman of supergroup Peeping Tom, his back catalogue is hugely impressive and we’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg.

The latest work to come out of his studio is a soundtrack to Italian film “The Solitude of Prime Numbers” and it’s not the first time he’s dipped his toes into scoring work (previous outings including music for “A Perfect Place” and “Crank”).

What you get for your hard earned is 17 tracks (all numbered using prime numbers of course) of wonderful modern classical music with arrangements to die for and the trademark Patton atmosphere weaved throughout.

Lazy Sundays: Mike Patton – The Solitude of Prime Numbers


  1. Genius in disguise. Mike, you’ve really got it made. I hope to meet with you again someday and NOT trip backwards over your fucking luggage.
