Triumphant from their valedictory return to San Francisco, Moaner of Hit move on to Coachella for their sub-headline appearance on Saturday.
Here’s what you need to know:
Faith No More will take to the Coachella stage from 7.55 to 8.45.*
*Thats 04.55 on Sunday in Central Europe, 03.55 in the UK and Ireland, 12.55 on Sunday in Sydney and 22.55 on Saturday in Chile.
Other bands I’d recommend on the Saturday are The Gossip, The Raveonettes, White Stripes-ish new UK band Band of Skulls, the xx, MGMT (I even like their new album) and MUSE (even if I don’t much like their newer stuff). All a bit Pitchfork indie maybe for some but there’s plenty on the weekend for all to enjoy. Be warned though that some European bands may not show due to the ash clouds over here disrupting flights – The Cribs have cancelled and Gary Numan is not expected to make it either. Muse, Florence and the Machine and others are already in the US so no drmaa there.
Hopefully, the rest of us will be able to catch the Faith No More set on the Coachella webcast.

The festival will be streamed on Facebook and MySpace.

(Complete with Patton quote:”In terms of festivals in the U.S., I can’t think of a better one or a more appropriate one. The San Francisco shows are basically warm-ups for us. We’re doing them in our hometown and it’ll be like a high-five type of evening.”)
