December 22nd, 2011|Faith No More|8 Comments

  • Brief Mike Patton quotes – the real thing this time – about the Sinfônica Heliópolis in leading Brazilian paper O Globo:
    “I never heard anything recorded by them, but I heard the orchestra by Brazilian friends. Once I found out more about the work of the Sinfônica Heliópolis , it confirmed my intuition that they would be perfect for  Mondo Cane. Not only musically, but also in spirit. After this experience, inviting the choir to accompany Faith No More at the SWU festival was a natural choice.”
    The piece also includes a great quote from the symphony’s executive director Isaac Karabtchevsky:
    “I was impressed with his attitude, which becomes demonic when that image is on stage, but he was an angel in real life.”
    A reminder of the performance:

  • And in a similar vein, the behind-the-scenes video Just A Choir from the Maquinaria festival that was previously on Facebook is now on YouTube:

  • fnm4ever have uploaded the full show of Faith No More at the Super Rock festival in Lisbon on YouTube:

The Seagull Song

December 17th, 2011|Faith No More, News|70 Comments

Last week we were alerted to the snippet of the Seagull Song by Shane who posted it on YouTube.
The song originated from the Angel Dust sessions and Shane somehow came across a full version of the song on a CD is his basement.
We were going to publish the full version on the blog but, as it was an outtake from the Angel Dust era that was left in the can for a reason and that that is where it should remain, we decided not to.
But it was published here in the Comments and The Holy Filament have posted on it so enjoy the snippet.

Apropos here is what the band said about unreleased material in their fan interview with Stubbadub, FNM French Facebook community and FNM 2.0 in 2010:
Billy: “I think we’ve released most of it, even the bad stuff.  The stuff that hasn’t been released it really not so good. There’s a reason it never got out; it never really came together. Everything else we put out a long time ago.”
Roddy: “Bands don’t release things because they don’t like how it sounds.”

December 16th, 2011|Faith No More, Links for a day|4 Comments

  • One of the more entertaining mash-ups we’ve heard and Midlife Crisis is the Faith No More component:
  • I missed this for an On This Day feature but here’s a great clip of Faith No More playing French TV show Nulle Part Ailleurs in December 1997 – probably their last ever TV-only performance:

  • Stumbled upon this again the other day and always worth revisiting this slice of popular culture. Mike Patton is not God!:

  • Speaking of the non-deity, here  – courtesy of Homefuck on Comments – is Patton’s opening narration of Bunraku:

  • Another good review of John Zorn’s A Dreamer’s Christmas and the Mike Patton Christmas Song contribution in particular
