INTERVIEW: Bill Gould speaks to Balkan Rock

March 29th, 2017|Faith No More, Interviews, News|12 Comments

Faith No More’s Bill Gould has spoken to Serbian music website Balkan Rock, with a lengthy interview published yesterday.

Here are some choice cuts:

On Sol Invictus:

“[Sol Invictus] was definitely a lot of work, like all our albums usually are, but I could say that this album was certainly the biggest challenge in the sense that we were all by ourselves, almost as in a vacuum…I always thought that the band had much more to say, so I’m very happy that it came to this.

On the band:

I also realized that as long as the band exists, I will have to accept that some things will never change.

The positive side is that everyone has the opportunity to contribute, so that the result is usually better than would have been the case that it comes from one individual or doubles. In addition, I think it creates an atmosphere of teamwork that is transferred to our performances. On the other hand, things become very inefficient when decisions are made.

Oh, and Billy also mentioned some of the bands he likes listening to: Usssy, Burial, BadBadNotGood, Getatchew Mekurya, Bucolica, Protomartyr.

Roddy Bottum to star alongside Michael Cera in new Sebastian Silva film

March 7th, 2017|Faith No More, News|13 Comments

Faith No More founder member and keyboard player Roddy Bottum will step in front of the camera in the new movie from star Chilean director Sebastian Silva.

Roddy shared some on-location photos from filming in the Catskills on Instagram last week, and he has revealed more details on the project to us at Faith No More 2.0.

Roddy said: “I just finished two weeks shooting a film called Tyrel by director Sebastian Silva. He’s a good friend of mine and asked me to be in his new movie. It is sort of an ensemble piece about a group of guys that go on a birthday weekend trip up to the Catskills in a cabin. Michael Cera, Caleb Landry Jones [Get Out], Jason Mitchell [Straight Outta Compton] and Chris Abbott also star.”

Silva is the rising star of South American cinema with a trio of breakout highly-lauded English-language movies in Crystal Fairy (the 2013 film that inspired the band name of the latest Ipecac super group), Magic Magic (both also staring Cera) and Nasty Baby.

Roddy is no stranger to the world of film either. An avid filmmaker in his teens, Roddy initially moved to San Francisco in 1981 to study film at San Francisco State University. Roddy has scored Adam & Steve (2005), What Goes Up (2009), Kabluey (2007), scored Gigantic [2008], Fred the Movie (2010) and the documentary Hit So Hard [2010].

Roddy added: “I think it’s gonna be a really special movie. He’s kind of my favorite filmmaker.”
