Song of the Day – Last Cup of Sorrow – 25 Feb 11

To round out what was actually a longer-than-normal work week is Faith No More.  The Last Cup of Sorrow is the song of the day which comes to you off the Who Cares A Lot: Greatest Hits Disc 1…at least that’s how I have access to it.  Faith No More has been pretty much resurrected.  They have been dormant for a while, but have reenergized their website and spent some time on tour in 2010.    No word yet on a new album, but it seems as though Faith No More might be playing with some things to see where it goes.

This is one band I liked when they came out that was different than the metal I was listening to.  I guess I started to broaden my horizons a bit.   There was a time when I was metal exclusive and I realized that there is good music out there that doesn’t require whiplash.  Have a great weekend!

  1. Great track!! FNM is a mindblowing band. They’re so damn original. “Album of the Year”, the album, “Last Cup of Sorrow” is off of is a great album, albeit quite a departure from their sound, but well, that’s what FNM is all about, being different then the rest. I really hope to catch them live, I missed them when the came to Milan on the reunion tour because they played just a couple days after I made my official move here and things were too hectic. But I have seen Mike Pattons other projects live. Mr. Bungle was just insane, they dressed up like the Village People and because they were playing at a metal show, their sound didn’t really fit the crowd so they were getting heckled a lot. And man did Mike Patton make some great comebacks to the hecklers. One of the funniest shows I have ever seen. (here’s a video of how Mike deals with hecklers, and the show I was at was nonstop with bits like it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocjm7nw5bRc)And I’ve seen Mike Pattons latest project Mondo Cane in Milan. For that he does top class covers of 50’s and 60’s Italian vocal pop songs with a full orchestra. It was one hell of an experience, the show was in the courtyard of an Italian castle and I was in the 10th row, I couldn’t ask for a better atmosphere. And his voice and annunciation was impeccable, I’ve never seen a singer so spot on live before, and he speaks fluent Italian so he had a great relationship with the audience. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33WSk-H7K7k
