Bill Gould interview with The Independent

July 28th, 2016|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

The now online-only London-based Independent newspaper has a full-length interview with the voice of Faith No More (the non-musical voice of FNM in any case), Bill Gould.

2016-07-28 10_02_42-Music _ Culture _ The Independent - Opera

Here are some choice cuts:

I grew up in LA and started playing bass when I was 12 years old. I was in a band with guys I knew from my Boy Scout troop (laughs) … seriously! We were called The Animated, my Mom would drop me off at their house with my guitar and my little amp. We’d write songs and Chuck was the keyboard player in the neighbourhood, so we’d ask him to jump in and jam on a few songs. I played in that band until I was about 18 before moving up to San Francisco to go to school.

I have stuff in boxes that I haven’t gone through for years and my wife got to a point where she said, ‘We’re living in boxes! You don’t even know what’s down there, can we just dump some of that s**t you have down there!?’ … and that’s when I found the tapes. I was like, ‘Oh my God, what is this?’ I’d found the half inch masters, which were the finished mixes and I found one 24-track reel that had the three songs that Matt Wallace has remixed for this re-issue (We Care A Lot, Pills For Breakfast and As The Worm Turns). I said to him, ‘if you could remix these songs today, what would you do with them?’ and what you hear on the record is the result.’

A lot of people don’t know this side of the band so it’s a cool thing to be able to put out again.’

Bill Gould interview round-up

June 30th, 2016|Tags: , , |4 Comments

We admit we’re late on all this. I’ve been working at EURO 2016 flat out for the past month but have just made my Frexit and here’s a brief round-up of Bill’s other interviews at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards.

Great interview and great pic with a Guinness over on Eonline

Interview highlights:

You’re on down time now. Is that a prolonged bout?
I couldn’t tell you, because if I told you then the band members would be mad at me for telling you without telling you properly.

2015’s ‘Sol Invictus’ was a fantastic comeback for the band.
Well, we were happy when we released it, so everything that came after that we’re kind of grateful for. We’re just happy that we got it together to make some music.

So you’ve been involved completely in the production of the reissue?
Absolutely. The one that was out, it was digitised from the vinyl back in the nineties or eighties, and we actually went into the studio in Berkeley and re-baked the tapes and re-digitised the masters and remastered them, so they sound more like they should sound.

and…

Finally, FNM are on a break right now, but it’s not over, is it?
Not that I know. Nobody told me! I didn’t get the memo! *laughing*.

Bill also spoke to Red Carpet News TV

What is your favourite track from Sol Invictus?
