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.

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!”
