Faith No More’s Bill Gould has spoken to Serbian music website Balkan Rock, with a lengthy interview published yesterday.
Here are some choice cuts:
On Sol Invictus:
“[Sol Invictus] was definitely a lot of work, like all our albums usually are, but I could say that this album was certainly the biggest challenge in the sense that we were all by ourselves, almost as in a vacuum…I always thought that the band had much more to say, so I’m very happy that it came to this.
On the band:
I also realized that as long as the band exists, I will have to accept that some things will never change.
The positive side is that everyone has the opportunity to contribute, so that the result is usually better than would have been the case that it comes from one individual or doubles. In addition, I think it creates an atmosphere of teamwork that is transferred to our performances. On the other hand, things become very inefficient when decisions are made.
Oh, and Billy also mentioned some of the bands he likes listening to: Usssy, Burial, BadBadNotGood, Getatchew Mekurya, Bucolica, Protomartyr.
