Excellent Chuck-era recording of Introduce Yourself at the Roxy.

And more recent  Chuck. Ericulation which is available to buy for $1.

Big in Poland

Faith No More’s three (p)releases continue to do well in Poland and some other territories. (Surely the Poles deserve an extra special show in Krakow in June?)

Faith No More Links for a day..(vol. 152): Doc trailer; Antemasque praise; chart latest

Faith No More movie

Well realised trailer for a fake documentary on Faith No More by On her site Stacey writes: “The current trend of band documentaries inspired me to create this fun ‘movie’ trailer”.

Antemasque praise

Apart from Superhero, I’ve been listening to a lot of Antemasque lately after discovering them supporting Faith No More in Tokyo and loving their previous work in At the Drive-in and The Mars Volta. Drummer Dave Elitch tweeted some nice words about FNM last night:

Chart update

Superhero and Sol Invictus are sliding somewhat on iTunes but still showing up strongly especially in Poland.
