Mike Patton appeared as a special guest on a recent episode of Henry Rollins‘ KCRW radio show. Throughout the two-hour program, the Faith No More rocker helped curate an eclectic playlist featuring George Clinton, Bad Brains, Tom Jones, Chet Baker, Funkadelic, Young Fathers, and Quincy Jones. Patton also chatted with Rollins between songs, discussing his role in new supergroup Dead Cross and Dutch musician Tom Dissevelt, pointing out how David Bowie picked The Electrosoniks: Electronic Music as one of his all-time favorite vinyl records. Additionally, Patton talked about his label, Ipecac Recordings, and how he goes about signing new bands.
