CHART UPDATE: King for a Day… in Billboard top 200 sales, UK rock and vinyl charts

September 20th, 2016|Faith No More, News|1 Comment

Faith No More’s King for a Day…Fool for a Lifetime re-release has made some chart impact in both sides of the Atlantic.

While the record misses out on a return to the US Billboard 200 album charts (where is peaked at 31 in April 1995), it is listed at number 195 in the Billboard Top Album Sales 200 with sales of 1447.

Meanwhile in the Official UK charts, KFAD features at:
Number 12 in the UK Rock Albums Chart
Number 32 in the UK Vinyl Chart

And We Care a Lot entered the Billboard Catalog chart at 32 on the week of its release. It also failed to reach the Billboard 200, which monitors streaming and downloads as well as pure sales, but did peak at 129 in the Billboard album sales charts with sales of 2271 in its first week.

Deluxe editions of ‘King For A Day’ and ‘Album Of The Year’ available now, each including brand new remasters of the original album along with a load of rarities + B sides. Available as 2CD, 2x 180g LP and on iTunes + streaming.

Red Hot Chili Peppers feud re-heated

After a some off-the-cuff remarks from a Fox News host, there is renewed attention on the somewhat over-played FNM v RHCP rivalry.

The Quietus We Care a Lot review

Faith No More expert Jeremy Allen has penned a detailed and psoitive review of the We Care a Lot deluxe band issue for The Quietus:

Choice cuts:

Broadly speaking, Faith No More’s time as an entity can be divided up into four distinct phases. The pre-Chuck Mosley era when they didn’t really release anything and had dalliances with various singers, including a young Courtney Love. The Chuck Mosley era from 1983 to 89. The all-conquering Mike Patton era, from 89 to 98, when they became a world straddling, MTV-sanctioned, unit-shifting rock behemoth. And the recent glorious comeback – also led by Patton – crowned with the excellent Sol Invictus album.

We Care A Lot is even less tethered to its own past because of a lack of availability. The original 10-song album hasn’t been commercially available for 20 years, and has only come to light again because de facto leader Billy Gould was having a clear out and stumbled upon the original reels (which have now been remastered by Maor Appelbaum). The record, which came out on indie label Mordam Records, is now out on the bass player’s own label, KoolArrow. Stick it on and marvel at just how fresh it sounds, in the way that Talking Heads still sounds fresh, or Infected by The The still sounds fresh.

Vinyl Factory We Care a Lot review

The Vinyl Factory also give the re-release a positive review:

Here’s one more to add to the essential re-issue campaign San Fran’s Faith No more have been releasing over the last couple of years and this could be the best yet.

AV Club Faith No More Judgement Night article

Via the resurgent Faith No More blog, there is an excellent section on the Faith No More/Boo-Ya-Tribe collaboration Another Body Murdered in this AV Club Judgement Night retrospective:

Faith No More would denounce its influence on rap-rock and nu-metal, despite bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit citing it—along with Mike Patton’s other band, Mr. Bungle—as revered inspirations. (“I do find that people who make bad music often have really good taste,” keyboardist Roddy Bottum would sneer to Noisey in 2015.) Despite their protests, between the band’s heavy, dissonant riffs and Patton’s Anthony Kiedis-enraging funk-rapping, you can definitely hear the ground being laid for the scores of bands who would strip Faith No More of all its oddball eccentricity, then regurgitate only its meatiest chunks. And in that sense, the band’s collaboration with the mostly forgotten Samoan rap crew Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. on “Another Body Murdered” may as well be rap-metal’s Rosetta Stone, reducing Patton to ominous “Ohhhh” backing vocals and the lyrics to generic gun bluster, all culminating in a mookish refrain of “Bang your head to this!” You can almost imagine Fred Durst’s cousin Marvin excitedly calling him to play this over the phone.

Mike Patton features twice on greatest collaborations list

Via the excellent Patton Fantatic comes the story that Ultimate Guitar has included Mike Patton twice in their Top 25 Collaboration Albums list.
Kaada/Patton ‎- “Romances” is at 19 while The Dillinger Escape Plan with Mike Patton – Irony Is a Dead Scene is at 4.

LINKS FOR A DAY 196: Bill Gould interview; Kaada/Patton video; Matt Wallace interview

March 14th, 2016|Links for a day|10 Comments

FNM FOLLOWERS interview with Bill Gould

Jim from FNM Followers has spoken to Bill Gould about the 21st anniversary of the release of King for a Day…Fool for a Lifetime.
Here are some choice cuts from the revealing q and A:

KFAD seems to be the FNM album that hasn’t aged at all. It sounds today as fresh as it did in 1995. Do you agree?
This might sound strange, but it’s been quite awhile since I listened to that album, or any of our albums for that matter, so I don’t know. What I can say, though, is that when we made it, we had hoped that it would withstand the test of time.

Looking back do you think those changes were essential in creating KFAD?
This album? Definitely. Everything that happened regarding the making of that album is part of the story. Working with Trey was very stimulating, things came together much more easily we were used to. Andy Wallace was the first producer we worked with outside of Matt, and his approach was definitely different, and we learned a lot from it. Then there’s Bearsville Studios — when I hear that album I still get mental images from recording at that place.

Check out the full interview here

New Kaada/Patton video

As I’ve just found out by watching in my office, the video if very NSFW but certainly apposite for the track:

Dan Boyle on touring with Faith No More in Rolling Stone

(Ice) Hockey player Dan Boyle famously worked as a roadie/hung out with the guys on their 2014 and 2015 tours – and now Rolling Stone have documented the story.


The article states:

“Boyle, an ardent Faith No More fan, hopped on the band’s bus in Philadelphia, and stayed on it for five nights and four shows, culminating in an August 5 performance at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. While it’s not unusual to see pro athletes hanging out backstage at big concerts, Boyle was actually onstage throughout the set, dressed in the same white outfit as the rest of the FNM road crew, performing such duties as dousing drummer Mike “Puffy” Bordin with water while he played, or assisting Mike Patton with his microphone cable whenever the singer dove into the pit.

“It was an amazing experience,” Boyle says. “I didn’t do too much the first night; I was pretty much just watching. But by the fourth show, I was helping out every which way I could – dispensing VIP tickets, decorating the stage, bringing guitars and basses out.

“One night, something was wrong with Puffy’s drum kit, and they needed some help with that,” he continues. “I’d never even touched a drum kit before, but somehow I helped correct the situation – don’t ask me how!” “

And the article also features quotes from the band and reveals that the band practised with Boyle’s then San Jose Sharks team in 2012:

“When I was a kid, I wanted to be a hockey player when I grew up,” Bordin says, “so this was a total ‘bucket list’ thing, to put on all the gear. It was such an awesome thing for him to do for us – though I think he was surprised I could actually skate!”
