Record Store day starts promoting Faith No More Motherfucker release

The countdown to the release of Faith No More‘s first single since 1998 has begun in earnest with Record Store Day including the details of the release of Motherfucker on their release list on their site.
(Here is a Rolling Stone story on all releases)

The only new information is that the release will be a Black Friday First Release, which means that it will be “available first at indie record stores but will be available at other retailers at some point.” However, with a limited release of just 500 copies, it is unlikely that the record will ever be widely available.

Full details here and in pic below

The B-side will be a remix by Australian composer/producer/performer J G Thirlwell of Foetus, who has previously remixed work by Pantera, Nine Inch Nails and the Red Hot Chilii Peppers. In addition, Mike Patton has previously remixed a Foetus track How to Vibrate:

Newly-surfaced Faith No More track not actually a Faith No More track

We are now certain that the We Care a Lot (re-recorded) track from the Eighties Junkie album and other compilations released in September was not recorded by Faith No More. The band have also confirmed this to us.

We’ll give the full details of the bizarre tale when we can.

Alternate version of Faith No More’s We Care a Lot appears on 80s compilation

We know that We Care a Lot has been recorded twice by Faith No More – for We Care a Lot and for Introduce Yourself – and even that a third live version has also been released.

But another version – very similar to the Introduce Yourself/Slash version – has appeared on an 1980s compilation album which has just been released.

The song is billed on the Eighties Junkie album as Faith No More: We Care a Lot (Re-recorded) and appears alongside other re-recorded 80s gems such as Tiffany’s I Think We’re Alone Now and Berlin’s Take My Breath Away. The album came out in September on Goldenlane records as you can stream on Spotify or buy on iTunes or Amazon.

Ben in Comments alerted me to the track and after several listens I’m certain that it is a different version. My guess is that it is a remix or different take from the Introduce Yourself recording. The vocal is lacking some of Chuck’s distinctive tone and the drums have been beefed up.

Update: It is indeed an alternate mix from the Introduce Yourself session.



Check it it below as well as the original (or the original re-recorded version to be exact).

Links for a day…(vol. 164)

We flagged this up a few months back but missed the actual release but the very well realised Lullaby Versions of Faith No More by Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star was released on 16 September.

It is available on iTunes here
Or it can also be purchased here.

Or here is a Spotify stream (beware this does what it says on the tin and this will lull you to sleep.)

There’s a good discussion here on Motherfucker, the first single which Faith No More will release on 28 November. The release will be a limited release of 5,000 for Record Store Day’s Black Friday promotion but some limited numbers of copies will also be made available for international use. Details of a digital release pre-order will also be revealed soon.

We haven’t had a Faith No More cover for a while so here is an interesting acoustic take on Midlife Crisis from Polish band The Hangovers.

Links for a day (vol. 163): Guardian feature and Fantomas in Chile

The Guardian today feature a beginner’s guide to Faith No More – and it is a well-informed effort from the UK broadsheet. The article states: “To mark the news of the first Faith No More album in almost two decades, here are 10 of their finest tracks, from rap collaborations to songs about masturbation.”

News today also that Mike Patton is not cutting back on his other projects. Fantomas are returning to the stage later this year. Humo Negro reports that supergroup will play the inaugural RockOut festival which takes place on 6 December at Espacio Broadway in Santiago, Chile.

Finally, rumours about the FNM April 15 release continue to intensify. Following on from U2’s Apple giveaway, latest reports are that the Faith No More release will also be an innovative giveaway. It seems the band are set to upload the album encrypted to the cloud on 1April along with a series of naked selfies and get free distribution from hackers as well as reddit and 4chan.
