 – Bill Gould has given a phone interview the Rockomotara show on Argentina’s Radio Led. The podcast of the 19 June is not yet online but the show have shared some snippets on their Twitter feed:

– Older interviews now and Mark (@NoCrowdsurfing) has a Flickr treasure trove of mostly UK music press interviews and reviews with and of the band back in the day.
Check it out. Here is one gem – a Mike P interview with the now defunct Face magazine:

Larger version.

– Business Insider has published a new list of supposed prices for bands to play one-off gigs lists the going rate for Faith No More to play in your front room as $500,000. That’s five times more than Black Sabbath by the way! The whole list to be taken with a pinch of salt but here are two other takes on it. PRP Lambgoat

  • The speculation on the new or mystery song first played in Buenos Aires and again in Montevideo continues apace. Most of the best insight can be found below the line in our post here. But the mainstream-ish music media has also picked up on it with The PRP picking up on a quote we previously posted from Mike Patton from his recent interview with Movieweb to explain the song as an unreleased song from the King for a Day… era – a point which has been brought up in our Comments.
    Also comments attributed to Roddy on the Faith No More Facebook page say: “the mystery song sounded way better in montevideo. sorry, BA, it was pretty much my fault. xo, RB (taking partial credit)”
  • And some more South American news we missed last week – Courtney Love speaking about her time in Faith No More to São Paulo newspaper Folha de S. Paulo. She said: “Roddy is one of my best friends. I was his last girlfriend before he turned gay. He is the godfather of my daughter Frances. He, Michael Stipe [REM] and Bono [U2]. I begged to join the band, like 1983, I would have been 18 years old and it was pretty crazy, put fire in their hair, cut myself on stage. He said he would make them famous. I was only the singer, they woudl not let me play guitar. I was just expelled from the group because they wanted to make Faith No More a male [machos in the original Spanish] band.”

New Faith No More song? UPDATED

November 9th, 2011|Faith No More, News|98 Comments

Here is the better audio version

And here is a sample of the media frenzy the track has generated
Revolver magazine
Metal Insider
Metal Sucks

Still no news on what the unidentified and possibly new song Faith No More delivered as the second track of their encore in Buenos Aires last night.
Here’s a smattering of lyrics from the song – and two videos are below:
(I have a terrible ear for lyrics so please post amends and what you’ve gathered below)

We’ll walk the shore…????

We will rise from the killing floor / Like a matador

Let your sweet dreams never stale??fairytale/ Fairytales
We will be where you will be no more/ No more

The stain you bless, the hangman’s axe will serve you well???
Now we’re coming back/ Our time could waste all these???
We’ll jump the gates and ….?? We’ve arrived

We will rise from the killing floor / Like a matador

The killing, the killing

Better video version  -(via Nick in comments)

Faith No More A Small Victory in Argentina video

November 3rd, 2009|Faith No More|0 Comments

A video for FNM’s first performance of A Small Victory on tour – recorded at the Club Cuidad in Buenos Aires on 1 November. By our reckoning they have not performed the Angel Dust cut live since the Phoenix Festival in England on 17 July 1993.
