Faith No More garnered a lot of attention for their slot at Reading tonight despite being up against the most popular band in the UK Kings of Leon. BBC have just finished showing a healthy proportion of their gig – around seven songs  – and a lot of attention has been lavished on their now familiar Eastenders cover. There should be a lot of pro-shot videos making their way online tomorrow.

Review:
From the good old indie bible NME (they were on their stage after all). Sample quote: “Later in the set, Patton treated the crowd to a singing lesson. “Got that note? Happy with it?” he asked. “Now we’re going to teach you rhythm. Welcome to my world, bitches.”
