Old Music Tuesdays: Tomahawk “Red Fox”
Regular visitors to my site, particularly my Old Music Tuesdays series, will know about my undying love for Mike Patton’s work. For those of you who don’t know him, you may recognize him as the vocalist of Faith No More, the band from the 1980s responsible for the hit song Epic. Patton is a workaholic and has been steadily releasing music (in several genres) since the mid 1980s. It’s not always to my taste, but it’s always well-crafted and interesting.
Today, I wanted to share a fan video for one of his many musical projects, Tomahawk. Usually, fan videos are pretty lame and/or awful. This one is special, though. It’s Flash animation and I think it really captures the mood and content of the song. The pacing is also pretty tight and the artwork is phenomenal. The mood of both the video and the song is that of a Native American spirit quest. It’s easier if you just watch it, so I’ve embedded it below.

dancing with your eyes
what could make me yell
I can feel the fur beneath your skin
I’ll be sure to follow your call
hasn’t been around
acting on a phone call back to me
Im your june if you want
red hair and green eyes, little beady eyes
how you caress me back to life
I am one of you now
you can… i can hear the earth
… running around
I can see your bare hot breath
with my goodbye to the wind.
