  • Happy birthday Mike Patton. The Faith No More front man turns 43 today 27 January. Best wishes Mike as we look forward to some new Patton music in 2011.
    Rewind to our tributes from last year parts one and two.
  • We can confirm after checking with the band that the rumour that Faith No More are due to return to play the BBK Live festival in Bilbao again this summer is definitely not true. I’ve also managed to track down how the rumour started – a cautionary tale of Chinese whispers in the multilingual interconnected 21st century. Step 1) The Barcelona Reporter site reports that Coldplay are to play the festival and mentions that Pearl Jam, Depeche Mode, Primal Scream and Faith No More have previously played the festival. Step 2) Influential French blogger and radio presenter Zegut mistakenly reports that this quartet may be playing in 2011. Step 3) French music site L’esprit Rock reports on Twitter than Pearl Jam and FNM will be playing Bilbao. Step 4) Zegut’s post is updated minus the FNM and other band mentions.
  • As mentioned last time out, the Faith No More international store has new products and they tell me that they will be adding more t-shirts shortly.
  • As a lot of you will be aware from comments, there is a new FNM forum up and active.
  • Mike Patton’s Adult Themes for Voice is featured in an AV club piece on unconventional recording spaces. Sample quote: “The hotel room isn’t the rarest of recording settings, but Mike Patton put his own inimitably warped twist on the tradition during Faith No More’s 1995 world tour. While the rest of the band went out cavorting through a cornucopia of bona fide exotic locales—Sao Paolo, Tel Aviv, Vienna, Wollongong, and um, Jacksonville—Patton hunkered down with a TASCAM 4-Track Portastudio, a Gideon’s Bible, and an endlessly identical splay of hideous furnishings, creating his own unusual atmosphere using only one instrument: his voice.”

I promise no mentions of Anthony Kiedis, Coachella or anyone’s mum.

  • New items in the FNM international store. I had this Introduce Yourself tee back in the day and will have to get this one too…

    And of course a phone case:
  • And even more belatedly, FNM’s awesome Chile and LA photos are up on fnm.com:

  • Some dodgy Faith No More covers have recently been posted to YouTube. Culled from the- let’s put this politely – underwhelming 2002 tribute album Tribute of theYear.

  • Some ancient FNM posters from 80s San Francisco (where I’ll be in March – San Francisco not the 80s) have been uploaded to Facebook for your viewing pleasure:

Integra found all these gems and added them in comment so we’ll belatedly kick off a new Faith No More year with these beauties.
