Hey, what’s that sound? Mike Patton Guardian feature

November 30th, 2010|Faith No More, News|2 Comments

Leading English newspaper The Guardian has an extensive feature on Mike Patton as part of its Hey, what’s that sound? series.
Sample quote:
“Why is it classic? The sounds that come slithering, gargling and retching out of Patton could belong to no other living creature. Every note he sings is instantly recognisable, but several light years outside from what most professional singers consider melody. Even his abrupt twist away from rock stardom into the avant-garde hasn’t seemed unlikely or alienated his passionately loyal fanbase.”

  • Holy Filament confirm that the Faith No More Santiago concert will go ahead as planned on 5 December. The Audax Italiano Chilean Primera Division match against Universidad de Chile is now on 3 December for those interested.
  • Belated Happy Birthday to Mike Bordin. Great guy and a great drummer. Check out last year’s tribute.
  • Great and relatively new remix of Epic by Utah Saints.
  • The second tour poster for Hollywood has been revealed. It is by Melvins maestro Buzz Osborne. (via Stubbadub and Holy Filament)
  • Nice article on Faith No More – including fresh quotes from Bill – written as a university assignment. Stacey had the moxy to approach Bill and typically he helped out.
  • Pawel Ejzenberg performs Easy on Poland’s Got Talent. More Commodores than FNM but he’s certainly made it contemporary and current and relevant /simoncowell.

Billy moves to quell Chile date change rumours

November 26th, 2010|Faith No More, Tour dates|12 Comments

New tweet from Bill

Bill Gould has tweeted on the rumours that Faith No More’s final Second Coming concert on 5 December in Santiago might be moved back one day to accommodate a football match.

According to leading Chilean news portal Terra, Audax Italiano maintain that their Chilean Primera Division match against Universidad de Chile on 5 December at the stadium has been planned for five months with the knowledge of the concert promoters. The article quotes Claudio Terra, the club’s general manager as saying: “the producer fucked with me every day with this, but they are the irresponsible people who took risks to organise a huge event on a day that they were told they could not. The stadium is ours, we have nothing to change and they do not even have any contract with us.”
Holy Filament
has the original story on the rumours.

Hi folks, sorry about the lack of updates. Been a busy time.

  • Really like this oh so mellow and oh so Scandinavian cover version of From Out of Nowhere from Nobody Told Me:
  • Mike rocking the hipster oversized glasses look from about 1990
  • What people still think about Faith No More and nu-metal? From a football/soccer forum. Worth a look just for this riposte: “Blaming Faith No More for nu-metal is like blaming the Velvet Underground for dull indie.”
  • I’d forgotten about this:

Faith No More and the San Francisco Giants

November 4th, 2010|Faith No More, News|49 Comments

Just a quick word of congratulations to all Giants fans on their World Series win. One of my Irish friends here in Switzerland is a big Giants fan so I know how much it means.
Like one Mike Patton ((c) Patton Facebook):

The SF Gate also managed to shoehorn Faith No More into a colour piece celebrating the win and the city’s quirkiness:
“4. Faith No More sings “God Bless America”: Beyond the seeming contradiction, this makes more sense than it looks. Faith No More lead singer Mike Patton has a solid operatic voice. And the influential San Francisco band sounded pretty good during a recent reunion. (It might be smart to set up a tape delay, in case the band that wrote “Surprise! You’re Dead!” decides to change up the lyrics.)”

And Puffy is a Giants fan as well.
And speaking about the Giants in 1993:

  • Mike Patton is once more dipping his toe into the film world. The Faith No More singer will be the unseen narrator for the forthcoming release Bunraku from director Guy Moshe. The film, loosely based on the Japanese art form of the same name, features Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore, Ron Perlman and Woody Harrelson as well as the Japanese music star Gackt. According to Inside Pulse “Much like the bunraku style of puppet theater, Bunraku utilizes the wry, over-the-top narration of an unseen commentator (Faith No More’s Mike Patton).” More from Wikipedia and IMDB.
  • Mike gives a Halloween-themed interview to The Phantom Band in Drowned in Sound.
