Two glowing reviews for Faith No More Glasgow show from mainstream UK press

Reviewers were out in force last night for Faith No More’s show at the O2 Academy in Glasgow. Here are two from the mainstream Scottish and UK press.

Daily Telegraph

“The volume was punishing, the lighting restless and intense. When Patton sang into a distorted microphone made from a taxi radio, shouted into a loudhailer or just opened his throat and screamed down the mic it was a physically affecting experience, the sound combining with the monolithic noise of the band and the aggressive pulsing lights to produce a head-ringing sensory overload.

It was disorientating noise terror, but was as likely to be followed by their cover of the pop soul classic Easy Like Sunday Morning or an easy listening version of Midlife Crisis as it was by yet another aural assault.”

The Herald

“Sol Invictus itself provided evidence they’ve not blunted their ideas, with a playfulness around sturdy rock structures, including some pop undertones on a rousing Superhero. The noise was consistently furious, with the rhythm section of Mike Bordin and Billy Gould propulsive, but that quirkier nature delivered an added spark, including an ear-splitting Midlife Crisis that casually, effortlessly, dropped in a snippet of Boz Scaggs tune Lowdown halfway through. The Academy, and Glasgow, may not see better this year.”

The “last” Reunited show

As edufig pointed out on Twitter we deliberately left out the 2010 Santiago show from our 5 December retrospective.
Fortuitously the Holy Filament have just uploaded the whole show on Vimeo:
