TOMAHAWK: More 'Anonymous' Details Revealed - May 2, 2007

TOMAHAWK, the "all-star" band featuring former FAITH NO MORE vocalist Mike Patton, ex-HELMET drummer Jon Stainer and former JESUS LIZARD guitarist Duane Denison, has revealed the track listing for its new album, "Anonymous", due on June 19 via Ipecac. It is as follows:

01. War Song
02. Mescal Rite I
03. Ghost Dance
04. Red Fox
05. Cradle Song
06. Antelope Ceremony
07. Song of Victory
08. Omaha Dance
09. Sun Dance
10. Mescal Rite 2
11. Totem
12. Crow Dance
13. Long, Long Weary Day

TOMAHAWK's third release, "Anonymous", links the outfit with the Native American culture that bore its name. A thirteen-track album that reverentially explores and reinterprets the darker, more recessed ancestral music created by North America's indigenous people, the title reflects the countless individuals who contributed to these songs but went un-credited throughout history.

At the turn of the millennium, Duane Denison toured with HANK WILLIAMS III, frequently finding himself on Indian reservations. "I was somewhat disappointed by the Native bands," Duane explains. "They were usually very conventional, kind of blues and country type stuff, or too much like 'new age' music. I figured there must be native music somewhere that was more aggressive, spookier, and more kinetic." Duane began to research the culture's music; about a year into his research he found books that were written around the time of Teddy Roosevelt's presidency, a period in U.S. history when Indian culture and artifacts were in vogue. The books, dated to the early 20th century, recorded transcriptions of the songs contained herein. The titles "Totem", "Mescal Rite 1", "Song of Victory" are all true to the names uncovered by the people who originally transcribed them, although Duane says "Red Fox" was altered to be more accessible. One song, "Long, Long Weary Day", is a non-Native American "parlor song" song of the same time period, and also uncredited.

Now a three-piece, TOMAHAWK recorded "Anonymous" in two-parts. Duane Denison and John Stanier recorded guitars and drums (respectively) in Nashville while Mike Patton added vocals and samples at Vulcan Studios in San Francisco.

This album was really good and fresh. Somehow Patton achieved singing in Navajo without sounding cheesy or sarcastic.

I love it, extremely different, but great. I'm sure a lot of people won't like it though.

Now a three-piece, TOMAHAWK recorded "Anonymous" in two-parts. Duane Denison and John Stanier recorded solid music in Nashville while Mike Patton then ruined it in San Francisco.
that's my prediction to how I'll feel about this.

Havn't heard it yet and I think I'll wait til it comes out. I'm tired of "ruining" it for myself. I will simply drive to Waterloo Records on June 19th, buy it, then drive around downtown Austin as I consume it. Can't wait til they tour. I know they'll come to Austin they always do.
