WATCH: Faith No More debut Cone of Shame video

September 29th, 2016|Faith No More, News, Video vault|8 Comments

Faith No More have released the video for Cone of Shame, the second official video from their Sol Invictus album, w.

Bill Gould told CLRVYNT:

“This is one of those tracks that had to be a video, really, because it lends itself so much to visual imagery. Given the song’s sense of Americana, it would have been easy to shoot this in Arizona or New Mexico, but having been to Macedonia several times, there’s a vibe there that I felt wouldn’t be out of place as a backdrop to this song. Goce Cvetanovski, as a director, understood this immediately; he knew exactly what to do with it, and along with an amazing cast, has managed to create something very dark, and beautifully cinematic.”

And the band confirmed that a limited edition “Cone of Shame” 7″ will be available on 25 November; with pre-order information available soon.

INTERVIEWS: Two new Bill Gould interviews

August 19th, 2016|Faith No More, Interviews, News|0 Comments

Bulgarian radio station Radio Tangra and US music zine Culture Creature have also scored interviews with Bill Gould on We Care a Lot.

The Culture Creature interview is an engrossing long read with great questions from the knowledgeable Dan Redding and typically candid replies from Bill.

Here are some choice cuts:

Are there other qualities you hear on it? What stands out to you?

We were all kind of learning our voice. We wanted to do some things that had some rhythmic, repetitive, hypnotic quality to it, but we wanted it to be heavy. It wasn’t quite that heavy yet but we were trying (laughs). You could tell where we wanted to go. I can’t say that we went there all the way yet – I think we still had some growing to do. You can hear the vision that we had, I think…

One thing that stands out on We Care A Lot is this real, raw energy that’s not self-conscious at all. It might be the way it was recorded – we did it very quickly and didn’t have time to polish anything. Part of the unpolished-ness about it is kinda cool.

and on Cliff Burton:

You performed one show as a band called The Chickenfuckers with Cliff Burton, Mike Bordin, and Jim Martin [note: the Chickenfuckers performed one show at Mabuhay Gardens circa 1984, with Gould on vocals]. What do you remember of that performance?

(laughs) It was ridiculous. I’d never sung in a band before, and I’ve never sung in one since. I think I drank a half a bottle of whiskey during that performance. It was kind of an ‘anything goes’ jam, just try to go as out there as possible. Unfortunately for that reason, I remember very little of it…. It was a complete open improv. It was fun.

And from Radio Tangra

Are there any songs that you wanted to be on the record [Sol Invictus], but you decided to pull them away?

Yeah, we made more songs than we did. Definitely. I don’t know, I mean, our relationship is very good so I don’t see why we wouldn’t. But I just can’t be the guy to tell you.

New Faith No More album: 1990 bootleg appears on Spotify and Amazon

October 23rd, 2015|Faith No More, News|3 Comments

Signposted as a new release under Faith No More in Spotify, a bootleg of a 1990 FNM concert has got an improbable wide release this October.

Stirring the Calm, a a straight-up bootleg of Faith No More’s performance on Friday, 9 November 1990 at magazine RIP’s fourth birthday bash at the Hollywood Palladium, Los Angeles. As documented here by Andrew’s Faith No More Gig Database.

The album blurb on Amazon reads:

An appearance at RIP Magazine s birthday party came during the peak of this critical period in the band s history. Held at the Hollywood Palladium on the 9th of November 1990 and broadcast live by KNAC-FM, the show saw Faith No More run through the best of both The Real Thing and Introduce Yourself to a raucous, celebratory audience. It s a fascinating snapshot of an unrivalled band at the zenith of their career, and will be essential listening for fans of Faith No More, those just discovering the group, and music lovers who want to understand and experience the evolution of metal from one of the genre s most important progenitors.

The gig was selected at number 6 in the Kerrang! 100 Greatest Gigs Of All Time published in July 1997.

The album is released on Refractor Records though Napster (remember them?) have it listed under Gonzo.

More news on this odd release when we have it.

Oh – and here’s the full show on video
