While we have all been concentrating closely on new Faith No More music, some amazing old-school FNM live footage has appeared on YouTube in the past few days.
‘Tuber josephdabestslayerko has posted 4 great videos of obscure Faith No More live songs. His offerings include two covers including the previously unheard cover of Pearl Jam’s Jeremy.
Indeed, the source of the short Jeremy snippet has stumped even Faith No More gig database guru and chief FNMologist Andrew Bowie. The gig database curator has only one Faith No More Jeremy cover listed before (10 October 1992 in Upper Darby, PA) and this is not it:
The same YouTube account has also posted the band’s mash-up of The Cranberries Zombie and Metallica’s Enter Sandman. This one was recorded in Norway on 20 March 1995, a well boot-legged gig. Notably it featured on the Ferocious Neurosis bootleg.
Also from that YouTube account, two early FNM live efforts of New Beginnings and Arabian Disco. These are from 1988 and the only two gigs with confirmed setlists from that year are Liverpool and Norwich from May.
