Faith No More cover Pearl Jam’s Jeremy and Metallica’s Enter Sandman new audio

March 9th, 2015|Faith No More, News, Video vault|8 Comments

While we have all been concentrating closely on new Faith No More music, some amazing old-school FNM live footage has appeared on YouTube in the past few days.

‘Tuber josephdabestslayerko has posted 4 great videos of obscure Faith No More live songs. His offerings include two covers including the previously unheard cover of Pearl Jam’s Jeremy.
Indeed, the source of the short Jeremy snippet has stumped even Faith No More gig database guru and chief FNMologist Andrew Bowie. The gig database curator has only one Faith No More Jeremy cover listed before (10 October 1992 in Upper Darby, PA) and this is not it:

The same YouTube account has also posted the band’s mash-up of The Cranberries Zombie and Metallica’s Enter Sandman. This one was recorded in Norway on 20 March 1995, a well boot-legged gig. Notably it featured on the Ferocious Neurosis bootleg.

Also from that YouTube account, two early FNM live efforts of New Beginnings and Arabian Disco. These are from 1988 and the only two gigs with confirmed setlists from that year are Liverpool and Norwich from May.

Faith No More Links for a day…(vol. 151): New look, NZ reviews and some videos

March 4th, 2015|Faith No More, Links for a day|6 Comments

As you can probably see, we have a new look and feel- Hope you like it. The site may be a little unstable like its editor for a while but let us know if you notice any bigger bugs. (Big thanks to Alberto for his stellar work on this. We’ll give proper thanks later).

WestFest review

News from Faith No More’s last leg of their Japan/Aus/NZ tour has been a little scarce but the New Zealand Herald now has a review of the event. They say: “Crowds built in the evening as punters finished work for a powerful set by Faith No More, who performed on a stage decorated in thousands of dollars worth of flowers. New songs, like Motherf*****, showed they haven’t passed their use-by date just yet, but it was brooding, funk-tinged classics Epic and Last Cup of Sorrow that really bought back the ’90s.”

WestFest photos

UndertheRadar have a photo gallery and a review of sorts: “Faith No More blew minds with their white-drenched and flower-laden stage, not to mention phenomenal showmanship – despite a slightly loose set.”

Faith No More FB posts

It was a bit disturbing to learn that Roddy was forced into taking down his original post showing him and Judas Priest front man Rob Halford together at WestFest. I didn’t see the abusive comments myself but I would have thought FNM fans were above such presumably homophobic abuse.

And here is Mike p and Mike B with Kim Thayil of Soundgarden

Gold vinyl Sol Invictus

Friend of the site Violet has Instagrammed a photo showing a promo for a gold vinyl edition of Sol Invictus that will be an exclusive at Australian store JB Hi-Fi.

Here’s a photo from the site:

Kudos to David Nisoff who has uploaded the first Superhero guitar cover to YouTube:

Faith No More Links for a Day… (vol. 150): Patton speaks: Jon speaks; French come early?; old new and new sold songs

March 2nd, 2015|Faith No More, Links for a day|15 Comments

The band frenzy continues with Mike Patton breaking his Sol Invictus silence to give an interview alongside Bill Gould with Australian radio station Triple J.

“I’m not sure we have a sound. We just do what we do and let the rest of the world figure it out.”
Mike Patton

And one more interview! JON HUDSON – fresh from lighting up the new FNM single – has spoken to music tech site Gearophobia.(via FNM Followers).  it is a wonderfully revealing interview and not just for musos or techies. I loved this quote on his relationship with the older FNM material:
“I enjoy the older material a lot. We don’t play everything of course. I don’t really try and branch out any further than what is on those respective records. I’m not trying to put my mark on it. There is no need for that. It doesn’t need another ‘signature’ on it. I’m a huge fan of what the other guitar players had done in the band… Jim and Trey. I don’t really think I’d want to be in a band and play for this many years if I really didn’t enjoy the material.”
Here’s the full elegant flipping book interview.

Great to hear Superhero on my radio station of choice BBC 6 MUSIC this morning – on their breakfast show. You can listen here – and Faith No More is from 48.00 onwards. It is Matt Everitt – the former drummer with Menswear who is waxing lyrical while giving the FNM update.

This release has really gone global. Even Irish state broadcaster RTE are getting in on the act with a stream.

Early release? AMAZON.FR have the CD release date for Sol Invictus listed as 15 May.
And the same for vinyl

AMAZON.COM still listed as 19 May by the way.

Enough with all that exciting new stuff. How about some OLD STUFF? Way old. Twenty-year-old to be precise. Some video of Faith No More in Sweden in July 1992 has just popped up on YouTube. cheers for uploading Aleksa.

And the setlist.

Here they are:

Cone of Shame
The band have only played this new one once so far – on the second night in Tokyo.
The original YouTube video has already racked up over 100,000 views

Here are some other views

The band have now played forthcoming single Superhero – released on vinyl 10 March and digitally 17 March – seven times (more than Malpractice, World is Yours and Paths of Glory if you believe and since its live debut in Hyde Park last summer.
Here is video from friend of the site Shaun Noonan from Soundwave Melbourne!

And one from friend of the site and long-time Faith No More gig database guru anuassiemusicfan

And Adelaide

And Tokyo

Faith No More’s comeback single has now had six plays since it was first played in London last year.
Hwere is is from Adelaide

The first new song that the band played on the reunion tour back in Buenos Aires in November 2011, track 9 on the album has now been played nine times live. However, it has got only one outing so far in 2015 – at the Melbourne Soundwave.
Here is it as the first song of the encore:

Faith No More at Soundwave Melbourne other videos: All about the Bass; Patton eats; Lion Sleeps Tonight; Patton hosed

February 23rd, 2015|News, Video vault|4 Comments

Faith No More were on top form both musically and as pure performers at Melbourne’s Soundwave show on Sunday. The band – perhaps liberated by finishing their comeback album Sol Invictus – were in spectacular form, even exceeding their impish best.
Here, culled once more from the work of Youtubers to which we are eternally grateful (sorry Roddy for encouraging filming at gigs!) is a collection of the more alternative moments on stage.

Mike Patton sings All About the Bass
Faith No More have always interjected slices of contemporary pop into their live sets (Technotronic and New Kids on the Block back in the day and Lily Allen and Lady Gaga more recently) so this quick reprise of the Meghan Trainor hit was no surprise. I suspect there may be a longer snippet of this out there.

Mike Patton eats into the camera
Mike often has fun with camera operators at gigs and has been known to eat the set decoration (not to mention regurgitate shoelaces) so here he is eating what may or may not be flowers.

Faith No More perform Lion Sleeps Tonight
The band always add something in the pause in Midlife Crisis (Sir Duke, Popcorn, Eastenders theme to name just three) and on Sunday it was the Solomon Linda/Tokens/Tight Fit classic The Lions Sleeps Tonight.

Mike Patton get’s squirt gun facial
Let’s just say it was very hot and leave it there.

Jon Hudson revealed as baby of the band
Some lively pre-Superhero chat

Faith No More at Studio Coast, Tokyo 18 February videos

February 19th, 2015|Faith No More|3 Comments

Here are the only 3 videos so far from last night in Tokyo. Good work by the uploaders and fnmjpfan for putting together the play list.

Some info on the throat singer via notre ami Bertrand from FNM French Community and Kayo in Comments:
He is Makigami Koichi, a well-known vocalist in Zorn’s circle who led the ensemble Hikashu. According to one website he is “known for his virtuosic vocal range and expression as well as his unique incorporation of elements of theatre, performance, and entertainment, all of which make this Japanese band so widely acclaimed both critically and popularly.”

Faith No More Links for a day…(vol. 170)

December 5th, 2014|Faith No More, Links for a day|4 Comments

THE digital release of Faith No More comeback single Motherfucker may be just days away but nothing stops in Mike Patton world and the FNM singer is in Chile this week as Fantômas play the Rockout Fest.
The band kick off tonight with a sideshow along with the Melvins at the Teatro Cariola in Santiago:
More details here:

AS always Patton’s arrival in Chile has attracted great interest. On their Facebook page, Rockout posted this shot of the band arriving:

AND Rockout’s video of Mike P’s message to Chilean fans has been picked up La Nacion newspaper.

AWAY from Fantômas, today marks 17 years since this brilliant if end-of-an-era Faith No More performance on UK TV. I watched this randomly just last week but the Faith No More blog reminded me today that it was aired on 5 December 1997. TFI Friday indeed.


THE FDRMX site has published an insightful review of Motherfucker.
“The song is about rhythm and ascension. It’s a chanted, rising swell of drums, with a spoken rhyme that leads to a rather glorious, almost operatic, chorus filled with Patton’s distinctive melodious-psycho vocals.”

Faith No More Links for a Day…(vol. 165)

October 29th, 2014|Faith No More, Links for a day|0 Comments

We’re long overdue a video digest and thankfully YouTuber Photoguy3D has generously obliged by uploading some great Faith No More content in the past few weeks.
First up a concert that I haven’t seen before – Faith No More opening for Billy Idol at the Hampton Coliseum in Virginia on 25 September 1990 including Mike Patton vogueing while dressed as Madonna.
Embedding disabled so link below:

He has also posted this MTV Hot Seat segment from February 1991. We’ve seen the hang-gliding before but not sure I’ve seen the introduction.

And next up another MTV feature from 1990 – Faith No More featured in the Year in Rock

Friends of the site fnm4ever have unearthed another great full concert gem – Faith No More at the Central Tavern in Seattle from 1 September 1989.

One for Aussie fans going to Soundwave where Faith No More play in January. Festival organisers have confirmed a deal to subsidise airfares for fans travelling to the festival from interstate locations in a partnership struck with Virgin Airlines.
The festival will accommodate Soundwave punters in out of reach locations by offering cheaper deals on flights to any of the festival’s four summer stops in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Finally, one we missed last month. Ipecac have some details of the Motherfucker release back on their site and this included in their fall preview article:
“The last black Friday release is the new Faith No More single, “Motherfucker.” This is a limited edition of 5,000 7-inches. The bside is a remix by JG Thirlwell. The single will be available for download purchase a couple weeks later. We are very excited about our new partnership with Faith No More/Reclamation Recordings. The new FNM album will come out next year and expect to see them doing some touring in 2015 as well. This ain’t a reunion, this is the real deal!”
