Faith No More | Kerrang! - September 19th 1992

It was never gonna be easy playing bottom of the bill with Guns N Roses and Metallica on a cross-states trek - but for Faith No More it's turned out to be something of a nightmare.

Kerrang! | Issue 410 | 19.09.1992 Testing The Faith by Chris Watts It is a fucking massive tour. It is reputedly the hottest North American rock for years. It looks like it. The luxury trek has crossed Europe and most of America. It will grind to a halt this week, and Faith No More

Faith No More | Smash Hits - September 19th 1990

Faith No More are taking Australia by storm. But that's the only "straightforward" thing about them. They used to be called Faith No Man. They're from San Francisco (mainly). They've got a bit of a fish fetish (except one of them hasn't). They look fierce but they're not too bad really. One of them says his middle name's Dracula but that's a lie. Another one says he loves the fact his name's Bottum. Or that's what Faith No More explained to Di Godley, anyway... Smash Hits | 19.09.1990 Amazin' Faith by Di Godley NAME: Vladamir Dracula the Third - alias Michael Allan Patton (singer) NICKNAME: John Holmes (American "pervy" film star who died of AIDS a few years ago), he's one of my heroes and p

On September 14th 1993 Judgment Night - Music From The Motion Picture was released, it featured the Faith No More & Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. track Another body Murdered. During the early 90s the music press desperately tried to label the hybrid styles of alternative bands with tags such as funk-metal or rap-metal.

In 1986 Aerosmith joined up with Run DMC to record a rap-rock version of the classic song Walk This Way and in 1987 Anthrax and Public Enemy released Bring The Noise. In 1993 this fusion of the rock / rap genres was taken

Back in May Roddy told Rolling Stone, "It was apparent that we as artists were on the brink of a new now; a place we’d never been.

We had a couple guitars and a piano and a keyboard and we wrote and recorded everything in the house we’re staying in. It’s been a window of enlightenment, honestly. It’s rare to have this much time for introspection." During July and Aug
