Faith No More New York and Philly shows reviews

July 6th, 2010|Faith No More, News|0 Comments

I’ve decided to out all these in the one post – but I will add them into the individual show posts as well.

Williamsburg Waterfront 2 July
Rolling Stone: “With smiles all around and enthusiastic performances, the night ended with the attitude that as far as reunions go, this one seems pretty damn sincere.”
New York Press: “The band played ferociously until the end as if 12-plus years never passed, slowing down the pace with a take on the Commodores’ “Easy.” “Again, you’re looking in the wrong direction,” said Patton, staring at the red, white and blue Empire State Building.”

Mann Center, Philadelphia 3 July
Philadelphia City Paper: “Something felt unfulfilled. The energy was high, but goddamn, this is Faith No More. Then, in the midst of “Epic,” when Patton is standing with his perfect posture and his stone glare on the audience, it hits you: goddamn, this is Faith No More, after 12 years, and that itself is theatrical enough.”
Philadelphia Inquirer: “They were at their best when their mutant-metal eclecticism gave way to more focused explorations: The soulful “Evidence” and piano-pop cover of the Commodores’ “Easy” were the night’s highlights, and made the pile-driving riffs and Patton’s black-metal growl all the more effective when they returned.”

Williamsburg Waterfront 5 July
MTV: “There may have been some gray patches in the goatees and some awfully worn T-shirts in the audience, but Patton — and more importantly, his band’s approach to hard rock — remains shockingly timeless.”
Village Voice: “The show is loud, precise, surprising, and surprisingly great. They open with a Peaches & Herb cover and then play some thrash with a prominent synth-string line. There are moments of easy listening and intense dissonance, deep soul and Vegas schlock. They can’t keep themselves from indulging in big, glorious, and anthemic moments, but Patton’s quasi-operatic tenor always sounds like it’s about to crack up into laughter.”

  • Mondo Cane will be released in the UK on 31 May, according to Rock-a-Rolla. (Via Patton Archivo)
  • Massive Attack’s new album is getting lots of press Down Under with Robert Del Naja (3D) seemingly doing a the interview junket trail. He reveals in The Age that some Mike Patton material may make an appearance in May. Sample quote: “Excitingly for fans, a new EP of material is ready and will drop in May. ”We did some stuff with Mike Patton [Faith No More],” 3D says. ”Also Guy Garvey and more great stuff with Damon.” Meanwhile, The Herald Sun reports that “there are also three songs recorded with Faith No More singer Mike Patton” with Del Naja stating: “We’re looking for an opportunity to finish those. Musically, they’re quite mad. We didn’t have the time to take the music to the right place, I’d like to re-look at all that.”
  • Meanwhile, Mike Patton will be back in New York in 2011. Broadway World reveals that he will feature in a John Zorn and Friends concert on 30 March 2011: “Avant-garde innovators Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Mike Patton, Marc Ribot, Dave Douglas and Uri Caine perform with experimental music master John Zorn in a series of mind-bending sonic compositions and no-holds-barred improvisations.” Playbill has the ticket details:NYCO season subscriptions are currently on sale. Single tickets will begin sale Sept. 7. Visit NYCOpera, or phone (212) 496-0600.
  • Following matthius23’s suggestion in the comments of the Scott Ian piece, there was actually an Anthrax/Faith No More comic book, published in 1991. Its available on Amazon.

  • Could there really be Faith No More shows scheduled for New York? In an interview with metal magazine site Metalholic, Justin Foley from Boston-based band Killswitch Engage suggested that his band will be playing some dates with the reformed Faith No More in New York. Here’s the relevant extract: “Metalholic: Are you more into older stuff, or newer stuff or a combination? JF: Maybe older.  I guess there’s not too much stuff that’s very recent that I listen to a lot.  Actually, Faith No More.  I think part of it is because they’re in reuniting mode.  They’re doing some shows in NY, and they’re doing one that we’re on with them.”
    I’ll leave that to yourself to work out. All I know for certain is that Killswitch Engage are on the Download and Nova Rock bills with Faith No More so maybe there is some confusion from that.
  • We finally have some details on the Faith No More Finland date. As reported, the date is Wednesday 24 June with gates opening at 1630. Tickets go on sale next Monday 20 April from here and here.
  • I simply had to include the pic above from Ryan James Terry that I have seen on a few blogs now – Patton Archivio and A Thousand Points of Light. Wonder what the band make of it, especially Puffy?
  • I’ve been thinking of this quite a bit lately but Faith No More certainly seem to be reinventing how bands communicate with their fans with Bill and Roddy’s Twitter updates. It has not gone unnoticed with the Italian tech site reporting on the band’s web 2.0 approach, saying that while the new site is simple, almost bare,it links to MySpace, Twitter and Flickr and adds that Roddy and Bill are providing micromessaging almost in real-time of the band rehearsals.
