Abstract (Document Summary)

Still, you have to wonder how his Faith No More bandmates feel about their lead singer moonlighting with a second group. "Some of the guys-and myself-wonder how [Mike Patton] could do it all," [Warren Entner] says. "But Mike has agreed to work with Mr. Bungle around the holes in Faith No More's schedule."

As you can imagine, Warner Bros. and Slash Records are justifiably concerned. Would Patton's involvement with Mr. Bungle expend time and energy otherwise devoted to Faith No More? Would a Mr. Bungle album confuse Faith No More fans-or siphon sales away from the band's next album at a time when the budding superstars are just getting mainstream recognition?

"I think everyone wanted Mike to realize that this is an unusual juncture in a band's career-just when Faith No More is establishing its overall identity-for the lead singer to commit himself to another group," Entner says. "But if Mr. Bungle can establish its identity while Mike stays committed to Faith No More, we're hopeful it will all work out."
