FNM FOLLOWERS interview with Bill Gould
Jim from FNM Followers has spoken to Bill Gould about the 21st anniversary of the release of King for a Day…Fool for a Lifetime.
Here are some choice cuts from the revealing q and A:
KFAD seems to be the FNM album that hasn’t aged at all. It sounds today as fresh as it did in 1995. Do you agree?
This might sound strange, but it’s been quite awhile since I listened to that album, or any of our albums for that matter, so I don’t know. What I can say, though, is that when we made it, we had hoped that it would withstand the test of time.
Looking back do you think those changes were essential in creating KFAD?
This album? Definitely. Everything that happened regarding the making of that album is part of the story. Working with Trey was very stimulating, things came together much more easily we were used to. Andy Wallace was the first producer we worked with outside of Matt, and his approach was definitely different, and we learned a lot from it. Then there’s Bearsville Studios — when I hear that album I still get mental images from recording at that place.
New Kaada/Patton video
As I’ve just found out by watching in my office, the video if very NSFW but certainly apposite for the track:

Matt Wallace interview from new documentary
Actually this clip is a deleted scene from an upcoming music documentary entitled Underground Inc, in which Matt talks about FNM and Be Aggressive.
Dan Boyle on touring with Faith No More in Rolling Stone
(Ice) Hockey player Dan Boyle famously worked as a roadie/hung out with the guys on their 2014 and 2015 tours – and now Rolling Stone have documented the story.
The article states:
“Boyle, an ardent Faith No More fan, hopped on the band’s bus in Philadelphia, and stayed on it for five nights and four shows, culminating in an August 5 performance at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. While it’s not unusual to see pro athletes hanging out backstage at big concerts, Boyle was actually onstage throughout the set, dressed in the same white outfit as the rest of the FNM road crew, performing such duties as dousing drummer Mike “Puffy” Bordin with water while he played, or assisting Mike Patton with his microphone cable whenever the singer dove into the pit.
“It was an amazing experience,” Boyle says. “I didn’t do too much the first night; I was pretty much just watching. But by the fourth show, I was helping out every which way I could – dispensing VIP tickets, decorating the stage, bringing guitars and basses out.
“One night, something was wrong with Puffy’s drum kit, and they needed some help with that,” he continues. “I’d never even touched a drum kit before, but somehow I helped correct the situation – don’t ask me how!” “
And the article also features quotes from the band and reveals that the band practised with Boyle’s then San Jose Sharks team in 2012:
“When I was a kid, I wanted to be a hockey player when I grew up,” Bordin says, “so this was a total ‘bucket list’ thing, to put on all the gear. It was such an awesome thing for him to do for us – though I think he was surprised I could actually skate!”
