Weekend Rotation

Fallen into another Patton binge again. Recently picked up two recent releases of his: A Perfect Place CD/DVD and Crank High Voltage soundtrack.
A.P.P. definitely took me back to Bungle's California and his second solo release (title I can't recall). It's a Niceuh.
The Crank soundtrack is the real winner between the two. Elements of everything he has ever done. Cynical vocal commentary ala RV, Sound Collage, spot on sequencing and sampling and all 32 tracks are short sweet much like the Fantomas equation. AND one track (#9) features programming from Richard Devine which is a standout on the album and I'll be damned if track 18 isn't one of the catchiest phrases I've heard in sometime.
