Mr Bungle - California LP
California is the third and final studio album by Mr. Bungle and the follow-up to Disco Volante (1995). The American experimental band including Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk, Fantômas, etc) was formed in 1985 while the members were still in high school. Mr. Bungle released four demo tapes in the mid to late 1980s before being signed to a major label and releasing three full-length studio albums between 1991 and 1999. Mr. Bungle was known for its distinctive musical traits, often cycling through several musical genres within the course of a single song. Many of its songs had an unconventional structure and utilized a wide array of instruments and samples.
Originally released in 1999 California was generally well received. The album was previously only available on vinyl in the USA. The re-issue of this vinyl release is pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl, with the first 2000 copies being individually numbered and pressed on white vinyl.
