  • Our friends at fnm4ever have produced two more wonderful video compilations.
    Their fourth Faith No More cover compilation is again a triumph of editing and research.
    Includes FNM rock roll at around 4.30.
    Faith No More – Cover Video 4 from fnm4ever on Vimeo.
  • And a this video is an even more stupendous undertaking brilliantly realised – a compendium of Faith No More tracks in film/movie soundtracks. Kudos. Enjoy.
  • Rhino Entertainment have posted a high-quality Ricochet official video on YouTube.
  • Get your Mike Patton “snowman” doll at Elo7.
  • The Nevermen project has yet to see the the light of day but Doseone has been speaking about working with Mike Patton in a recent interview with Pitchfork (I read it while combing my beard and peering over my oversized glasses so you don’t have to.
    He said “[Patton and I] are starting plans to do a large chunk of music together, just the two of us. His style and talents are directly supplementary to mine. He goes in and in five minutes lays all the melodies for a record, and they’re all different and varying, and it takes him quadruple the time to come up with one word for that entire record full of melodies. For me it’s like, you give me fucking, “be-deep-it-tappa” and I’m like, “The radar’s on the TV”– it’s like instant word-a-rama. So you know, it’s really nice.”

Mike Patton and Susan Boyle duet in the offing?

March 18th, 2014|Faith No More, News|0 Comments

London’s Metro newspaper is reporting a bizarre story in which a British palm reader has foretold that Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle will perform with none other than Mike Patton.

Palm reader Harrison Richards has looked into SuBo’s future for Take A Break magazine. The magazine stated:
‘Susan’s palm also reveals a quirky and playful side that we’re yet to see.
‘This will lead to a surprise collaboration with musician Mike Patton from the rock band Faith No More, and a move towards a more experimental sound.’

  • Radkey cover Digging the Grave. It is the B-side to single Feed the Brain, which was released on 3 March.
    Stereoboard report: “The original version of this track was released as a UK single on February 28 1995, 3 months before Radkey’s Isaiah Radke was even born. Back then, it hit the singles chart at #16 and the band performed it live on Top of the Pops.  Isaiah says:“Digging the Grave is one of our favourite Faith No More songs. It rocks really hard so it pretty much called to us. We’ve been playing it for years, so we thought that now was the perfect time to record our version of it.””
  • Darkglass have Bill Gould endorsing their drive pedals:
    “The people at Darkglass Electronics must be bass players, because it’s the first time I’ve used a drive pedal that not only sounds right, it FEELS right.”

  • Faith No More Naked in Front of the Computer live in Cleveland 1997 (via the one and only Douglas Esper)
