VIDEO: Mike Patton performs behind the bar at Faith No More Troubadour

September 4th, 2015|Faith No More, News|2 Comments

Faith No More played a not-so-secret midnight set at the Troubadour in Hollywood, Los Angeles on Thursday night. The band played a mixed-up Epic-less set for the lucky die-hard fans in attendance, with singer Mike Patton at his brilliant best. He left the stage several times to surf and mingle with the audience and went so far as to sing while behind the bar at the back of the venue during Ashes to Ashes, downing shots in the process.

LINKS FOR A DAY 187: Bungle Weird Bill interview, Atlanta full show, grope no more

August 4th, 2015|Faith No More, Links for a day, News|3 Comments

Bungle Weird interview with Bill Gould

Pablo and Bungle Weird have pulled off a wonderful interview with Faith No More bassist Bill Gould. The Q and A covers new ground and differs in both tone and content to the now often repetitive media interviews. Faith No More Followers have hosted the full English version but we’ll add a few of our favourite questions and answers below:

It’s known you wrote more than 10 tunes for “Sol Invictus” so in your opinion, are there any other noteworthy ones that didn’t make the final cut?

BG: There are definitely noteworthy ones that didn’t make the final cut, but they didn’t get finished. So I don’t know what will happen. I actually don’t know, and I’m not thinking about it right now because I’m thinking about touring.But we can see.

Considering you are in comeback mode as a band for quite some time now, I’d like to know about your music influences, past and present. Was there any band you were looking up to when first starting out that stood through time as an influence?


BG: …But also when you get old I think what happens is your early influences stay with you. So I am more influenced by older music than I am with newer music. I never used to be that way but I see that happening more and more and I would say that my earliest influences, my very earliest influences, I’m talking about when I was like 10 to 12 years old have the biggest impact. But I would say John Lennon, David Bowie… (pause). And probably for me… and then the Sex Pistols, I think those were the big three for me.

The band released its only live video album in 1990. Is there a chance of releasing a live show in bluray in the future? I’ve heard that some concerts were professionally recorded.

BG: We do have some recordings, I don’t know what we’ll do with them, we haven’t talk about it because we’re still on touring mode. But it would be cool to do. we have some really good stuff recorded. Our sound man is recording most of the concerts and it would be a great thing. It’s just when you go down this direction is a whole new set of responsibilities and until the tour is finished we are not ready to do that yet.
PF: I remember the Warfield 2010, concert with Chuck, was professionally recorded.
BG: Yes, it was, we still have it.
PF that one would be very good.
BG: That would be cool. I think we recorded the one when he played in Detroit too (this year).
PF: My favourite FNM concert that could be released and I attended is the one in Chile 2011, King For A Day with Trey, so special. Specially because of Just A Man with a choir.. so special, everyone there was crying!
BG: Yeah, that was cool, huh? Super cool. That was a great show. Even Trey had fun!

Why Rise of The Fall was the last song to be played live? is there a reason? why? Play it here in Brazil, please!

BG: We didn’t learn it all live. It was a song that Roddy wrote that we kinda recorded in the studio but we hadn’t played it together.
PF: oh, it’s Roddy’s? (surprised)
BG: It’s Roddy’s.
PF: oh, nice!
BG: So we did learn how to play it all together in sound check.

Tell us about the basses you’ve used along the years, what you seek in an instrument compared to other brands and you you ended up with the particular bass model you use today!

BG: Really, only a couple. I started with a thing called the Gibson grabber. On the first tour that we did, We Care A Lot album and I broke that in half so I had to get another one and I started with an Aria Pro II and Cliff Burton (Metallica) turned me on it because he had an Aria Pro II. He took me to the Aria guys and they gave me a bass. Really early when nobody knew who FNM was, and it was really cool. So I kept that bass all the way up until Angel Dust. And then there’s this guy from San Francisco that makes guitars named Joe Zon, Zon Guitars. And I met him and he made me the bass that I’m playing now. So the bass that I’m playing on the concert tonight is the same one that I’ve had since 1991. Yeah, and I love it! And I don’t really feel like I need another one. I’m happy!

Atlanta full show

FaithNoMore4Ever have again put together a full show playlist of the recent show at the Masquerade in Atlanta.

Grope no more

I have always believed that part of Faith No More’s appeal lay in how the band successfully skewered and satirised the macho posturing that dominated rock music in the 1980s. But it seems some macho assholes didn’t get the message. There have been reports of two women getting groped at recent Faith No More shows.
Alli’s assault happened at the Wiltern and she has produced a wonderful if disturbing comic on the ordeal. Please read and if you notice anything like this going on at any concert, please intervene.

And unfortunately another woman was groped at a Faith No More/Refused show earlier this week. @SMLXist shared her experience on Twitter:

She also tweeted out a link to the @safegigs4women which depressingly exists as the problem is so widespread.

CONCERT: Faith No More at Merriweather Post Pavilion, Columbia

August 3rd, 2015|Faith No More, News|8 Comments

Faith No More pulled out all the stops as their US tour continued at the Merriweather Post Pavilion, Columbia, with RV and A Small Victory on the setlist  (the first time both songs have been played in the same set since the Phoenix Festival in July 1993).  In fact, it was the first time RV has been played in the US since February 1993 (Tipitina’s, New Orleans). For good measure, the band played Rise of the Fall for only the third time – and for the first time outside Germany.

Faith No More get rave preview in New York Times

July 30th, 2015|Faith No More, News, Sol Invictus reviews|0 Comments

Faith No More play (the theatre) at the iconic Madison Square Garden on Wednesday 5 August – and they have just got another laudatory write-up in The New York Times.

The Times says:

“Empty rituals, trinkets and fossils,” Mike Patton gargles within the first half-minute of “Sol Invictus” (Reclamation/Ipecac), a rattlingly vital new album by Faith No More. He’s taking aim at religious trappings but maybe also disarming the pomp around, say, a cult-heroic rock band in the midst of an unlikely reunion…Startlingly, “Sol Invictus” feels like more than a reboot; it has genuine ambition, and a growly sense of purpose. Whatever Mr. Patton has to say about rituals, it’s bound to be interesting when Faith No More plays its first-ever show at Madison Square Garden.”
