Faith No More Links for a day…(vol. 147): Two new interviews and Antemasque speak Patton

February 20th, 2015|Faith No More, Links for a day, News|1 Comment

WE HAVE been so thoroughly spoiled by Faith No More interview this week that the latest one is not even getting a standalone post. Roddy has again taken on the role of band spokesman in the latest interview published in Australia’s The Beat.
Roddy is again on form as he eloquently summarises the potpourri nature of the band: “What we’ve all been doing the past ten years; that comes into what we’re doing now as individuals, sure. But mostly we addressed us as a band, our core sound. That was the place of our inspiration. But in that there are these crazy personalities, these very distinct people. We all have some pretty crazy ways. Mike Patton’s solo stuff over the last ten years or so is wack-a-doodle crazy, this over-the-top, boundary pushing, weird collage stuff. Billy makes a lot of records that are mostly for people who don’t speak English, these worldly kinds of records. All of us keep trying to push things in different areas. I live in New York and I’m writing an opera about Sasquatch. What I like most about here is that people take culture, specifically really strange culture, very seriously. And that’s super inspirational for me, I love being in a place where people applaud avant-garde, and I would like to think I bring a little bit of that to what we’re doing. It doesn’t hurt that it also sounds really good on the record, too.”

IN THE SAME INTERVIEW RODDY also has some wise words on the issues of phones at gigs: “hat is really sad and cheap to me. But I’m actually seeing less and less of it now. I think it’s waning a little bit, people are starting to realise that that experience of music, the YouTube video or camera-held footage, just isn’t all that great.” In defence of gig filmers, I would argue that those who upload videos of new never-seen-before songs so that fans worldwide can see them are providing a service for their fellow fans. But the general point that the experience is not that great is certainly true.

AND ANOTHER INTERVIEW! The increasingly loquacious Mike Bordin this time. He spoke to Australian site Music Feeds. Speaking about Sol Invictus, he said: “To do an album has never been by numbers for us – it’s always a huge commitment and a massive process. It’s not something we could have done at the start of the reunion – it wouldn’t have been us. We had to revisit who we were in order to have an idea of where we were going. Now that we’re all speaking the same language again, now we get to go somewhere new.”
And he echoes Roddy’s comments on the group dynamic: “Everything is represented on this album. You’ve got our singer, Mike [Patton], with his range of talents and breadth of skills. Our bass player is particularly talented at creating these atmospheres and environments with his production and arrangements. Everyone’s ideas are in this record. There’s enough rock, there’s enough crunch, there’s enough melody, there’s enough darkness. All the elements are there. It’s not just one guy and one thing when it comes to Faith No More. It never has been. It’s about the value that each of us puts on music.”


FAITH NO MORE
will once again be on the same bill as new band on the scene Antemasque at Soundwave in Adelaide and Melbourne this weekend. I’ve been listening to the new record by the former At the Drive-in and Mars Volta guys (plus Flea¨) all day and love it and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez  and Cedric Bixler-Zavala have spoken to Mikey Cahill (who interviewed FNM this week) in a Courier-Mail interview. Cedric stated: “Oh Faith No More. Yes! We met Mike in San Francisco a little while ago and he was an adult man with the spirit of a little kid. He was awesome. The surprise came when they asked us to open for them. I’ve never seen them live before.”

Links for a day…(vol.49): Chatroulette and more

February 28th, 2010|Links for a day|6 Comments

  • Faith No More are again proving pioneers by becoming the first band to broadcast a gig live via Chatroulette during their Australian tour. IT Wire have picked up on the story. Sample quote: “There were a number interesting characters that popped up last night, most notably a man and his son who bobbed along to the music and did devil horns with their hands. No-one else seemed to appreciate the effort, most users disconnected within 5 seconds when they saw a sea of 1000 raised fists and bright lights, instead of someone to talk to. There were young girls, half naked guys, and a grandpa playing guitar.”
  • And here is some video courtesy of Male Practice in comments:
  • Photo proof from Stacey in comments:
  • The band have sent their best wishes to their many, many fans in Chile after the devastating earthquake this weekend, with Roddy tweeting “our hearts and well wishes go out to our special friends in Chile. love & support from FNM” and Bill adding: “On behalf of FNM we would like to dedicate this tweet to all of our friends in Chile.” Faith No More 2.0 also sends best wishes to our many readers in Chile and hope you are safe and sound. A big shout to our friends Patton Archivo and mikepatton.cl.
  • Reviews are finally starting to appear from the mainstream media in Australia. Here’s a review of one of their Festival Hall shows.
