FANTOMAS Schedule Autograph Signing In New York City
FANTOMAS, the band featuring former FAITH NO MORE singer Mike Patton, MR. BUNGLE bassist Trevor Dunn, MELVINS guitarist Buzz Osborne and SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo, will be stopping by the Virgin Megastore in Union Square in New York City on Tuesday, April 12 at 3:00 p.m. for a special autograph signing prior to their Irving Plaza show later that night. WSOU will be on hand at the event giving away a pair of tickets to the show and five copies of the latest FANTOMAS release "Suspended Animation". "Suspended Animation" was released this past Tuesday and purchase of the CD from the Virgin Megastore is required to attend the event, so don't forget your receipt. The Virgin Megastore is located at the corner of 14th street and Broadway.
"Suspended Animation" features 30 tracks, each titled after a different day in the month of April. The first manufacturing run of the set features a 30-page spiral-bound calendar to house the CD, with artwork by Japanese cartoonist Yoshimoto Mara. Sprinkled throughout the typically schizophrenic music are a bevy of cartoon samples, including Bugs Bunny's famous rhetorical question, "Well, what did you expect in an opera? A happy ending?," which ends the disc.
FANTOMAS will drop in on the first day of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, to be held April 30-May 1 in Indio, California.
