  • Finally, managed to find a report of Billy Gould speaking at the Heineken Music Conference in Tel-Aviv from the Jerusalem Post. Sample quote: “Labels used to be in it for the long term with an artist – they’d get signed to a development deal, and the label wouldn’t mind if the first record didn’t sell. The idea was to build a following, and by the third album, you’d begin to see the results of your labor,” he said. “There’s no way that would happen today. If you’re not a hit, you’re gone.”
  • The tour posters from the second leg of The Second Coming tour are now on sale at Secret Serpents.
  • Here’s a generally positive  Rock en Seine review from ClickMusic.
  • And a glowing review in French from MusicPlease here and another from Telerama here.

More Chuck on the reunion

August 20th, 2009|Faith No More|0 Comments

Very interesting interview with Chuck Mosley on the Metal Insider site.

Sample quotes: “I think it’s [the reunion] great. More power to them. They actually invited me to come out and do the “Reunited” cover with Patton. Unfortunately, they asked me two weeks before they hit the road, and I couldn’t get my passport together. Also, we were just finishing up this record.

“Do you talk to them regularly? Yeah. In fact, the last time they played here before they broke up, Billy invited me to come up and sing my songs. But it was too sudden, and I didn’t want to come out and do it half-assed. I have this reoccurring nightmare of that happening and me going up there and flubbing it.

  • More Portugal videos and reaction. There’s another collection of high quality Faith No More videos from their Sudoeste show at the Blitz site here.
  • My good friend Hugo Pietra was at the gig and here’s his verdict on his excellent blog.
  • There is a good selection of the high-quality Hurricane footage featured on German TV channel ZDF theaterkanal here.
  • Pitchfork featured an interview with Doseone AKA Aam Drucker is which he speaks about working with Mike Patton and the controversial British artists the Chapman brothers on a new project called the Nevermen. He also mentions his project with Alan Moore and adds that Mike will be contributing.
  • Mike’s FNM predecessor Chuck Mosley is getting plenty of press attention for the forthcoming release of his debut solo record Will Rap over Hard Rock for Food with Rolling Stone the latest publication to feature an interview. Sample quote: “That said, would Mosley ever reunite with Faith No More? “Oh, totally! Especially with [guitarist] Jim Martin, because personally, I thought [firing Martin] was as big if not bigger a mistake than getting rid of me — just because he had a lot of pull with the big part of their crowd at the time. And he was ‘the personality,’ y’know? There was something people could identify to. After Jim, they were going through a string of different guitar players, and I couldn’t name one of them. That Jagger/Richards, Plant/Page thing was gone.””
  • There is also a chance to listen to the full album on AOL (though it seems to be US only).

Chuck Mosley was invited to take part in FNM reunion

August 5th, 2009|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Buried near the bottom of the Chuck Mosley Cleveland Scene interview we mentioned earlier is the revelation that Chuck was actually invited to be part of the Faith No More Second Coming Reunion Tour.

The article reads: “Mosley says Faith No More invited him to join their reunion tour that’s currently traipsing across Europe; the guys even asked him to sing the Peaches and Herb tune “Reunited” at the kick-off date. But the lost birth certificate and Social Security card prevented him from traveling overseas. “What are you gonna do?” he shrugs. “Sometimes I feel sorry for myself, but I can’t be like that forever. I’m getting too old for that. Plus, when I get focused on playing, all that stuff goes away. It’s not even an issue for me.”

Check out the full interview here.

Here’s Chuck’s latest video blog including concert footage.

Finally, the Will Rap over Hard Rock for Food album release part takes place  at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland on Friday 14 August.
