What year are we in? Patton teams up with Kid Koala and Wolfmother alumni

September 29th, 2009|Uncategorized|12 Comments

As Michael Bolger noted in the Comments, Mike Patton joined long-time collaborator Kid Koala and his latest project The Slew on stage at The Independent, San Francisco on 25 September. Amazingly, given his infamous immortalised on YouTube comments about the Australian band, The Slew also features Chris Ross and Myles Heskett, who until very recently were the rhythm section of Wolfmother.

Faith No More in Ireland

August 26th, 2009|Uncategorized|31 Comments

We originally published this post in March but in honour of FNM’s return to Ireland tomorrow we again bring you Faith No More 2.0’s look back at Faith No More’s previous gigs in Ireland.

  1. 18 April 1990, Top Hat, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin
    I was way too young for this gig at 15  – I do remember some mates heading to this – so information is scarce. Indeed, my only source is blog comment from an Irish Times blog. User Des commented: “The Top Hat I remember seeing Faith No More playing there with New York hardcore band Prong doing support slot back in 1990. FNM came on late so the DJ entertained the crowd for about 1 1/2 hrs playing tunes from the likes of Living Color, Fishbone etc. waiting for them to arrive. By the time FNM finished it was after 11.30 with the last DARTs [public transport] well gone back then leaving everyone in sundry with long walks home on that chilly Tuesday night.”
  2. 19 April 1990, Ulster Hall, Belfast
    FNM went north and over the border for a gig in the iconic and now reopened venue. I’m afraid I’ve no more info than that.
  3. 16 May 1992, Slane Castle
    This one I do remember. My first major gig, my first outdoor gig and a rare sunny and hot day in the Irish summer at the famous venue that has hosted U2, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Queen, REM…In the week of my 18th birthday I travelled the two-hour journey on a coach packed full of friends and fellow fans. Naturally, most were there to see headliners Guns N’Roses but there was no shortage of Faith No More fans too. Local band My Little Funhouse were the openers with FNM on stage around 3.30. It was a sparkling show in the sunshine with an inspired Patton winning over a host of new fans. I don’t remember many details [strangely I do recall finding the ideal way to spend the ensuing two hour wait for Axl to emerge…]. Thankfully I have tracked down some Irish media reaction, if no actual reviews. One year on, the City Tribune previewed their Sunstroke gig with the report: “They blew Guns N’Roses off the stage in the heat at Slane last May.”
  4. 30 November, 1992, Point Depot, Dublin
    I have slightly clearer memories of this gig in what was then the Point Depot [now the O2 something]. Girl grunge group L7 provided the support and enough risqué antics to excite a then 18-year-old. FNM were in their element on the night with Patton flopping around the stage in top form. I spent most of the gig in the mosh pit and recall emerging into an arctic Dublin night and having to ring the sweat out from the shirt I was wearing over my Angel Dust t-shirt. My other abiding memory is of some confused audience-goers actually waving lighters in the air during Easy. Here’s the Teach Me Violence fanzine verdict: “It’s strange, I’ve never watched FNM play from such close quarters before, and it certainly adds a new angle. Musically, the gig isn’t the best, but both the audience and the atmosphere are great. Only sour point are particular bouncers front of stage who are acting like assholes. Even Patton has to have a word with them at one point.” The Sunday Independent later rated it as one of the concerts of the year in Ireland.
    On a sorrier note one young schoolgirl was seriously injured at the gig and successfully sued for compensation some time later.
  5. 27 June, 1993, Dalymount Park, Dublin
    This one seems to have been erased from the official Faith No More gig archive as neither of the usual estimable sources, the Stefan Negele database or the aussiemusicfan Faith No More gig database refer to it. In fact, Faith No More replaced the Red Hot Chili Peppers as headliners at the Sunstroke Festival, with Belly and Sonic Youth in support. [Tragically I missed this gig as I was in the US but was there when RHCP played!. However, I have unearthed the review from The Irish Independent, one of Ireland’s biggest newspapers: “It was not a day for the faint-hearted. If the sizzling heat didn’t get you, then the blistering sonic assault from the stage at Dalymount Park certainly did…Funk metal merchants Faith No More raced on stage shortly after 8.30 and set about some impressive press-ups and other physical jerks. They meant business and they certainly breathed some fiery life into an otherwise disappointing day.”

Faith No More in Edinburgh video and set list and reviews

August 26th, 2009|Uncategorized|0 Comments

First reviews now filtering in as well. See below.

Opening video (via Steve in comments)

Closing video
Pristina (with Patton shirtless for all the ladies – and some men)

From BBC Scotland here. Sample quotes: “Opening with the John Barry epic “Midnight Cowboy” and quickly following it up with crowd favourites “From Out of Nowhere” and “Be Aggressive”, the band showed that time had definitely not taken the edge off their performance and Patton’s phenomenal vocal range has lost none of its power.”
And: “Towards the end of the set Patton invited an overjoyed girl to join him on stage for a duet, in which she duly took part. Holding the audience together with ease, all arms aloft, Patton’s exchange about sweaty Edinburgh armpits led to a swift lick to his armpit by girl, who was swiftly despatched back to the crowd with an, “nice knowing ya lady, now get out of here”.

The venerable BBC also have a photo gallery here.

Faith No More at Pukkelpop set list, stage dive, reviews and videos

August 22nd, 2009|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Faith No More’s appearance at Pukkelpop again garnered rave reviews and there is quite a bit of pro-shot video of the show around.
Belgian newspaper De Morgen gave a great review. They declared the comeback “a true triumph” and added: “The alternative rock band remains an error in a chemical lab experiment, in which by chance a powerful aphrodisiac was composed”.
Humo gave a four-star review and alluded to Patton’s goading of the VIPs and media who were seated at the front of the stage.

Patton goes walkabout among the VIPs and spits on the camera.

Midlife Crisis and the stage dive going wrong
“This is dedicated to homeboy even though its a little appropriate.”
