Find Me On:
I remember being about 13 or 14 and listening to a Faith No More gig on Radio 1 late at night just after Angel Dust came out. I’d never heard anything like it. The synths, the samples, the weird choruses and hooks, the heavy, thrashy guitars. I won’t claim to have understood it straight away but it left a hell of an impression on me. Completely uncompromising, supremely confident and so so weird. Plus Mike Patton was (and is) the coolest motherfucker on the planet.
In fact, cool is the word. It was really, really cool. One of my favourite albums to this day.
