ELSEWHERE the thank Chuck Mosley campaign continues. The Faith No More blog are running an auction to raise funds: They an inviting bids for:

an original promotional photo of the band from the early 80’s, it was saved in Bill Gould’s archive for around 30 years and sent as a gift to one of us. It was later signed by Chuck when he visited Chile in 2013.
So, how can you get this piece? Easy: Bid on it at this link: Facebook album!
If your bid wins then you make the donation of the amount reached to Chuck’s paypal account and we’ll send the Photo*. The auction ends on December 12th.

Remember our aim is to help, so if the bid is too high for you and you simply want to make a donation, we welcome you to do it here: chuckmosley@mosleyvua.com

And wise words on the subject from Ben in Comments:

I personally feel that with the amount of hours of my life since I was 10 years old that I’ve spent either listening to or humming Chuck’s songs Cement, VUA, and his songs with FNM that I’ve been ripping him off for years. Seriously, his VUA album was only $9 when I bought it and these demos were a dollar donation (I paid more to try to help him get a tour going, but a lot of people just paid the dollar). Anyway, I think these demos are great, several of them better than the album cuts. People should check them out and it’s for a good cause.

Faith No More Links for a day…(vol. 170)

THE digital release of Faith No More comeback single Motherfucker may be just days away but nothing stops in Mike Patton world and the FNM singer is in Chile this week as Fantômas play the Rockout Fest.
The band kick off tonight with a sideshow along with the Melvins at the Teatro Cariola in Santiago:
More details here:

AS always Patton’s arrival in Chile has attracted great interest. On their Facebook page, Rockout posted this shot of the band arriving:

AND Rockout’s video of Mike P’s message to Chilean fans has been picked up La Nacion newspaper.

AWAY from Fantômas, today marks 17 years since this brilliant if end-of-an-era Faith No More performance on UK TV. I watched this randomly just last week but the Faith No More blog reminded me today that it was aired on 5 December 1997. TFI Friday indeed.

 

THE FDRMX site has published an insightful review of Motherfucker.
“The song is about rhythm and ascension. It’s a chanted, rising swell of drums, with a spoken rhyme that leads to a rather glorious, almost operatic, chorus filled with Patton’s distinctive melodious-psycho vocals.”

More Faith No More at Amoeba video and photos

It is easy to scoff at people holding up cameras, phones and especially tablets at gigs and it is now regarded as a serious social faux pas with artists such as Jack White and Savages banning it outright at their gigs. But…in certain circumstances such as when new songs are being played for the first time or when a band is playing in a tiny venue, it would not be possible to see these unmissable performances but for the chutzpah of such camera warriors. So FNM 2.0 salutes you camera and tablet guy – and especially in this instance the likes of Eric Pace, Jason Gifford, Jose Henrique M. Oliveira Gonzalo Maldonado,Frank Slodysko,  reyka wrekka and especially littlemoe69 for filming and uploading Faith No More‘s historic, iconic, for-the-ages performances at the Amoeba record store in San Francisco on Friday.

New full show:

(Fantastic overall views above and the song sounds great)

There are some great photos from Joshua Weinfeld here.

And Frank Vella also has a set on Flickr. (hat tip Pattonism on Facebook)

Amoeba also have some photos and should add their video of the show soon.

And Rock N Roll Cocktail also have truly amazing shots.

Faith No More’s Motherfucker single on sale for Record Store Day Black Friday

The day has arrived. Faith No More‘s first single since 1998 and first new music since 1997 is now available to buy in independent record shops in the USA and Canada.
The 7-inch limited-edition single Motherfucker comes complete with a B-side remix from J. G. Thirlwell and is available at some of these participating stores.


Some lucky fans have already picked up copies (see above) but some unscrupulous shops are selling the record on Amazon and eBay for up to $80 which goes totally against the spirit of Record Store Day.
Let us know if you have got your copy.
