Chariot Choogle {demo} 1998

Fantômas: Amenaza Al Mundo (Book 1) 1999

This album is meant to be as a comic book of sorts. Tracks are pages instead of songs, each page containing frames or cells of music. It was written by Patton (according to rumours) in about 1995 or on the FNM:KFAD tour. He recorded a demo early 98, and sent it to people he wanted to be in the band, requesting that they record their bits and send it back to him. Good music to drive at night with.

The Director's Cut (2001)

Most of these covers had been done originally during their 99-00 tour. As such the band was more involved creatively with this album. A cover for the theme of 'Flashdance' was also going to be on this album, but consent was not given by the powers that be.

Imagine finding yourself in the middle of an S&M orgy and garden party consisting of fifty demented but generally good-natured epileptic people amped up on speed.

Got that so far?

Now imagine that all of these people are wearing silly hats and have megaphones strapped on their faces. No two of them speak the same language, and none of them speak the same language as you. Also, they're all over seven feet tall.

Then all at once and without any apparent signal, they all stop what they are doing (flogging each other, etc.), and start singing in eight-part harmony, all in perfect pitch, then begin uncontrollably projectile vomiting all over each other.

Then a herd of elephants stomps through, honk out The Godfather theme, stomp off, and crush six or seven partygoers on the way out.

Finally, some guy screams PSH-KA-KA-KA-OOOOH-YA-YA-YA-YA-YA-YA-YA-OOH! and some other guy with an enormous afro smashes his guitar on your head.

This is sort of what listening to Fantomas is like.

It grows on you.
