Links for a day…(vol. 97)

July 27th, 2011|Faith No More, Links for a day|29 Comments

Got to say that the blog reanimation could not have been better timed; we have news oozing from every pore these days so here’s a relatively run-of-the-mill round-up.

  • Saying as it seems certain that FNM are back in Chile, here is a short interview with Mike Patton from Chilean blog/programme La Mierda en que Vivimos.
  • And a timely interview with veteran Northern Ireland noise merchants Therapy? in Ireland’s State magazine in which they recall an incident with Faith No More from a Sao Paolo show:
    “We went on a South American tour, and on one date there was a bloody bottle in the dressing room. Two cops were in the dressing room with us, and Faith No More had just come off stage. One of the band reached over and grabbed the cops gun from his holster. The whole room froze, and the two South American cops – it was in Sao Paulo – just looked at each other and burst out laughing. It could have gone horrendously wrong.”
  • Roddy has tweeted that he will be playing a DJ in an upcoming movie and wants name suggestions:

  • In Celebrity Cafe, the past two years have not happened.
  • I don’t think we featured this before – Machine Head’s cover of Jizzlobber. (Some context)
  • Faith No More and Soundgarden at the L’Amour in New York in 1990

Voice of Memory cover of We Care a Lot

January 17th, 2010|Faith No More Covered|3 Comments

I have to admit I’m not familiar with the band Voice of Memory even though they have been around since 1987. But here is their cover of the FNM’s breakthrough hit We Care a Lot.

What’s your verdict? I have to admit I like it, even the more Pattonesque than Chuck Mosley vocals. Here’s their MySpace.

Bands love Faith No More

May 22nd, 2009|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Lots of love for Faith No More in recent days and weeks from other bands ahead of their reunion Second Coming tour.
First up, David Draiman from Disturbed, who spoke to Fangoria Online about their almost infamous Midlife Crisis cover (see below). He says: “Our approach [to the song] was to respect it – to respect the integrity of it, and not deviate that much from the original. The original was genius. I have a huge amount of respect for Mike Patton, and we obviously love the song and the darkness within it. Originally we recorded that when we were approached at one point in time to do a FAITH NO MORE tribute album that was being spearheaded by THE DEFTONES. Mike Patton ended up putting the kibosh on that because he didn’t want there to be any tributes to FAITH NO MORE. So we had that version sitting around for quite awhile and when this album came up (WARNER BROS’ COVERED: A REVOLUTION IN SOUND) we figured we loved that song so much that it was time to do a kind of modernized version of it. We changed a couple of things musically, but as far as his vocal approach, in no way do I think that I could ever out-do Mike, so I tried to just keep it true.”

And there’s more. The delectable Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil, who play on the same Download and Rock in Idro bills as Faith No More, told Italian site Panorama: “Mike Patton is one of my favorite singers ever” and when asked five sogs she always has one her MP3 player chose Faith No More’s Kindergarten: “”one of my favorite songs of all time: wonderful melody changes”.

Meanwhile, this from Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor in Rocksound: “He also told Rock Sound what he is looking forward to at the festival. ”Three words my friend; Faith No More motherfucker!” Technically Corey that’s four, but hey, who’s keeping count.”

First up in Faith No More Covered is a very recent cover of From Out of Nowhere by Los Angeles group Five Finger Death Punch. The track features on the band’s first UK single The Bleeding which will be released on 6 April. Happy listening. Let us know what you think and suggest some tracks for inclusion in future volumes.
