Lovage - Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady By

Upon hearing the news that Faith No More was planning on reuniting I found a list of some of Mike Patton's other projects. I was familiar with most of it - Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, Tomahawk, Peeping Tom and Mike's solo stuff, but one I had never heard of was something called Lovage - a collaborative effort between Dan Nakamura, Mike Patton, Jennifer Charles and Kid Koala.

Mike Patton has an absolutely incredible voice, but I much prefer to hear the man sing instead of doing his more deranged solo/Fantomas stuff. I totally respect the man as an artist and everything, but I just can not get into this type of stuff. Luckily Lovage is a very cool, laid back trip-hop/lounge outfit which lets Mike's (and Jennifer's) tremendous singing voice shine. If you like your Mike Patton a little poppier (like Peeping Tom) I would give this a shot.

This album is quite out of print and is fetching upwards of $100 on Amazon, so I am posting this here for anyone having trouble finding it. Or people like myself who somehow never heard of it before now.

Nice choice. Have had this album for years, still listen to it all the time... there's also some involvement from De La Soul. Had no idea it was out of print. Always good to know there's an option if I run out of $, eh?

Nice! We've got this and the instrumentals on vinyl somewhere around here.
