Mr. Bungle recently wrapped up a US tour on which they played their early demo The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny in full.
Speaking about the demo, Patton recalled, “I remember writing riffs for this cassette in my parent’s garage, with no heat, so I recorded in a sleeping bag for analog warmth, playing a one-stringed acoustic guitar that was piped into a ghetto blaster. Thank god I had Trevor [Dunn, bass] and Trey [Spruance, guitarist] to help decipher my rotten riffs into something intelligible!”
“Ever since Trevor hatched The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny v.2 idea a few years back, Patton, Lombardo, he and I had each been incubating some idea of that egg,” added Trey Spruance. “Lombardo called me one day and asked me to make some guitar demos so he could learn the songs. He had this generous idea to surprise the other guys with being totally ready to go with the tunes. It just so happened that I was in Eureka at the time."
