Links for a day…(vol. 32)

September 4, 2009
  • Will they or won’t they? Examiner.com muses on whether Faith No More will tour the US. I’m pretty sure they will.
  • Via the same source and from Metal Injection, neatly-packaged Faith No More at Download Festival video.
  • Finally a good quality version of FNM covering Lily Allen surfaces on YouTube.
  • Faith No More at Reading photo gallery from Sophie Jane at MySpace.
  • Less that flattering Tel Aviv gig review from Haaretz. Sample quote: “The second point almost unnecessary to add is that even a pale version of Faith No More is still much more than an undiluted version of 95% of most bands. And yet a large number of songs, especially during the first part of the show, sounded like covers of the originals – and not like renditions that could stand on their own.” Also on Tel-Aviv, Billy apparently spoke at the Heineken Music Conference – more on Kool Arrow than FNM – but if anyone has links to reports can they please let me know.
  • Virtual Festivals have their top 10 acts at the Radio 1 stage at Reading and Faith No More are right up at the top.

    out of 100 opinions about the FNM show in Tel Aviv, 90 say it was the best show they ever attended, so don’t mind that review.

    Sorry– I’ve asked this before but does anyone know where all the pro-shot video of this tour is ending up on the web (outside of youtube and such). I’m looking for some high quality pro-shot video on torrent and usenet site but there isn’t much to be found.

    Don’t remember where exactly it was – Turku or Riga or SPB, but FNM said smth like: “We have not plyaed these songs for so long, it already feels like we are playing cover. We are a cover band”

    I will be creating a whole new website for my band photos soon, I just haven’t had the time yet! I hope to have it all done before the end of the year, as I hope to see Faith No More in Australia in February and get better photos.

    Another thing I forgot to add, I shoot bands and scenes for

    http://www.virtualfestivals.com

    so thank you for mentioning the website! All my Faith No More photos from Reading can be seen on there, too.

    Obviously people are wondering whether a US tour will be announced, but what about Asia…? There are loads of fans in Japan, China, etc who are also wanting to see Faith No More live!
