2019: May 14th - Faith No More Live 1997

I've had FNM on the brain of late, specifically King for a Day. Ugly in the Morning has always seemed a classic to me - well, every track on King is a classic, in my opinion at least - but it remains a bit unsung in my head, as in it's never a song I think or discuss first when talking about the band or the album. Contemplating this lead to the idea to post, and searching for the song on youtube this live version came up. Really cool to see this live from back in the day. There are currently conflicting reports of the band working on new music; Patton says they're not and the rest of the guys say they are, so who knows what may one day come down the pipes, if anything. I've recently begun to wonder if we might not see FNM with a different singer again at some point, or new band altogether, comprised of Bottom and Gould, at the very least.


Playlist from 5/13:

Godflesh - Pure
Lou Reed - Metal Machine Music
ACDC - Highway to Hell
Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats - The Night Creeper
Charles Bernstein - A Nightmare on Elm Street OST
Blut Aus Nord - The Odinist


Card of the day:

The marriage of two forces/ideas into one. I'll read this as a pat on the back for continuing to develop the different voice and ideas I'm applying to writing Ciazarn, which is wholly outside my comfort zone.

I will forever go back and forth over whether Angel Dust or King for a Day is my favorite FNM record, a real "Sophie's Choice" type situation there.
