Faith No More at SWU redux

November 15th, 2011|Faith No More, News|18 Comments

Without coming over too much like my compatriots Boner and Bob Geldof, it is good to give soemthingback and one of the greatest things about Faith No More is that they make an effort find out and get to know the places to visit.
Most via Bill on Twitter, here is some info on their SWU Festival experience.
Learn about KCAL [who shared the stage with FNM at the festival], the self-confessed “book trafficker.”

And here is more info on the the Coral da Gente (at the Instituto Baccarelli), who provided vocals on Just a Man.

R7: ” But the big surprise was a new song, still unnamed, which is being played on tour in South America The band does not comment on anything, but it seems that the FNM may be preparing a new CD.”
Último Segundo: “In his fifth trip to Brazil with Faith No More, the singer proved that the affection is not in vain. In Portuguese he gave many good words and sang “Evidence”, thanked the audience and even went on a walk into the middle of the audience. Between kisses, handshakes and a cooling bath, he returned intact to the stage.”
G1 Globo: ”

The new song redux

November 14th, 2011|Faith No More, News|39 Comments

Here are all the video version i can find of the new song.


Definitive audio version (Argentina)

Also Argentina

And again

Anyone with better ears than me fancy transcribing the lyrics?

Lyrics guesstimate:

We’ll walk the shore…????

We will rise from the killing floor / Like a matador

Let your sweet dreams never stale??fairytale/ Fairytales
We will be where you will be no more/ No more

The stain you bless, the hangman’s axe will serve you well???
Now we’re coming back/ Our time could waste all these???
We’ll jump through gates and ….?? We’ve arrived

We’ll rise from the killing floor / Like a matador

Make (me/her/him/them?) jealous / Now I’m jealous / What else can we get? / Now I’m jealous / Jealous!!!”

Links for a day… Extra (vol. 109)

November 10th, 2011|Links for a day, News|29 Comments

  • The speculation on the new or mystery song first played in Buenos Aires and again in Montevideo continues apace. Most of the best insight can be found below the line in our post here. But the mainstream-ish music media has also picked up on it with The PRP picking up on a quote we previously posted from Mike Patton from his recent interview with Movieweb to explain the song as an unreleased song from the King for a Day… era – a point which has been brought up in our Comments.
    Also comments attributed to Roddy on the Faith No More Facebook page say: “the mystery song sounded way better in montevideo. sorry, BA, it was pretty much my fault. xo, RB (taking partial credit)”
  • And some more South American news we missed last week – Courtney Love speaking about her time in Faith No More to São Paulo newspaper Folha de S. Paulo. She said: “Roddy is one of my best friends. I was his last girlfriend before he turned gay. He is the godfather of my daughter Frances. He, Michael Stipe [REM] and Bono [U2]. I begged to join the band, like 1983, I would have been 18 years old and it was pretty crazy, put fire in their hair, cut myself on stage. He said he would make them famous. I was only the singer, they woudl not let me play guitar. I was just expelled from the group because they wanted to make Faith No More a male [machos in the original Spanish] band.”
