• Warfield posters are on sale at Secret Serpents.
  • More media love for Faith No More’s Coachella performance. Here’s the Examiner review. Sample quote: “I wanted this to be so good, and with only 50 minutes to perform, they had to nail it and nail it quickly. Good news is they did, and every song was something to be marveled at.”
  • And here is Beat Crave: “Comedy aside, it was a stellar set, with the band burning through pre-Patton hits like the synth-woozed crunch of “We Care a Lot” and, of course, the slam-bang rap-rock kinetics of “Epic,” all with the energy and dedication to creating an experience that bands half their age would be hard-pressed to muster.”
  • And MSN’s Reverb blog: “Singer Mike Patton, hair slicked back, dressed in a pressed red jumpsuit that matched the IMAX-screen-sized red velvet curtain behind the band, struck arm-outstretched poses like an Italian opera divo, snarling and crooning through the band’s extensive catalog. His mercurial voice was ballasted by FNM’s towering low-end rhythm section of bassist Billy Gould and drummer Mike Bordin.”
  • Meanwhile, more Mondo Cane news. The Wroclaw Poland date for 22 July we previously reported has now been confirmed. Ticket details here.
  • And Mike will fittingly also bring Mondo Cane to Italy, on 25 July at the Jazzin’ Festival in Milan. Tickets from ticketone.
  • New Jersey’s Aquarian Weekly has a review of the Mondo Cane release, due out on 4 May: “It’s a wonderful cross section of Italian pop that the many-talented vocal acrobat has curated on this release, and Mondo Cane is a warm love letter to Italian music that Patton has highlighted for his cultish audience.”
