Metal Hammer brings the story beind the Real Thing

May 12, 2009


Another great Behind the Music-style article from the Metal Hammer blog is published today following on from their King for a Day… piece some months back: “The Story Behind Faith No More’s Real Thing”. Sample quote: “Mike came to a gig right out in the middle of nowhere in California. Literally so far out, it was almost in Oregon! He gave us a tape, and we were blown away by his voice. It was unbelievable. He was such a ridiculously good singer. There was no comparison with Chuck.” (Mike “Puffy” Bordin).

Give us your opinion on this seminal album below. It was certainly my introduction to the band and remains a favourite.

    I like The Real Thing, of course, but it’s not as good as Angel Dust and King for a Day.

    Still trips me out that Mike Patton was 19 when he cut that record…

    Perfect timing for me The Real Thing, Just turning 18 and looking for something new.

    What an album.
