Links for a day (vol.16)

June 23, 2009
  • Faith No More sold over 6,000 tickets on the first day of sales for their Santiago show. More here.
  • Posters for the Frankfurt show should soon be on sale here.
  • Stubbadub have excerpts from an interview in rock a rolla magazine with Greg Werkman from Ipecac records on Mike Patton’s future plans. Sample quote: “There will also be a new Peeping Tom record, not this year though… Then him and Dan the Automator started working on a band called Crudo.  The thing about Mike is that he always has five or six records at various stages, all at the same time and it’s hard to tell which one’s gonna get done first.”
  • Also at rock-a-rolla, a piece on Josh Homme’s latest project, which suggests – with quotes from Greg again – some Mike Patton involvement. Sample quote: “He’s trying to get a lot of people involved in it, too, as a matter of fact he’s trying to convince Mike Patton to go out to the desert but Mike hates the desert.”
  • Some Faith No More “humour” here at Best Week Ever.
  • More FNM humour here courtesy of the surreal Uncyclopedia. Sample very long quote: “Recently, Faith No More reformed, playing several hundred shows in Belgium because “that’s where the demand is” but they refuse to play in any other country. Their return was celebrated by the release of their 327th compilation album, simply titled: “The Absolute Very Best Most Awesomely Definitive Ultimate Collection of Absolutely The Definitively Greatest Hits Ever By Faith No More That Contains Faith No More’s Very Best Ultimate Definitive Greatest Hits And Is A Better Compilation Album Than Who Cares a Lot?, This Is It: The Best of Faith No More, Epic and Other Hits, The Platinum Collection and The Works Combined And Also It Has The Very Best Ultimate Definitive Greatest B-side Hits That You Heard On The Other Compilation Albums And Also It Has A Shark On The Cover and the Greatest Definitive Very Best Absolute Hits The World Has Ever Seen In A Faith No More Compilation Album With A Shark On The Cover”.
  • Latest Chuck Mosley video blog has been posted on his MySpace, where you can also listen to Punk Rock Movie,  another track from his forthcoming album Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food.

    OMG, that Surreal Uncyclopaedia made me laugh so much I cried – just as well it’s my lunchtime at work and I’m the only person currently on this floor.

    Absolutely brilliant!

    “Faith No More sold over 6,000 tickets on the first day of sales for their Santiago show”. That’s nothing. FNM sold 13,000 tickets in about 15minutes in Finland.

    Um, yeah, Surreal Uncyclopedia was HI-larious. Ok, now I’ve got to stop obsessively checking this side for updates and get back to work.
