    Aye. I was really just meaning the "classic" lineup before they turned shit. I found AotY to be a pile of ballsacks. :)

    It'd be like seeing Life of Agony without Keith Caputo or Guns 'n' Roses without Slash. Fuck that!

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Caputo is different though, being the singer and having such a unique voice. GnR have been the Axl Rose solo band for a while now.


    "Shit", "ballsacks"... you really are hard to please aren't you :)

    Heh one of my greatest adventure during the last year in highschool was connected with going to a FNM concert (which was their last tour with Jim Martin).

    Every one of them is a genius in his own right so great news if true.

    I have just peed my pants. Sadly I don't do festivals, but if they do an actual tour I am SO there. With or without Sir Jim Martin.

    Good news. \o/

    The fuckers broke up, I think just about a month before a younger, hairier, malty was due to see them in concert. After having the ticket for bleeding ages.

    They owe me a free ticket and a wig to compensate. ;)

    Wasn't aware they had split up...!

    Think I first saw them on Mike Patton's first UK tour....it was a 5 men and a dog crowd.
    1989 maybe? Glasgow Mayfair? Bollocks, 20 years ago....where has it gone....

    Didn't pick any albums after The Real Thing, was more of an Indie rocker then.....

    Might pick them up now.

    Hope the European tour involves more than just London, hard enough getting tickets for Fantomas and Tomahawk, but this will be mental when/if they go on sale!!

    Also didn't Patton mention at some point that a new Peeping Tom album was in the works for this year or did I just hope for that?

    Chuck was an good front man, much better than Mike on 'The Real Thing Tour'.

    Angle Dust is a good album tho.

    I never saw them live with Chuck, but at least Mike could actually sing. Chuck sounded like a tone-deaf cow on mogadon.

    @Rowlsten

    The reuters link suggests festival dates, so I doubt they'd go anywhere near London.

    Faith No More + Prodigy + ? for Readings/Leeds '09?

    :)

    True, but that's punk rock man.

    I'm pretty sure it'll just be the festival circuit for the time being. Almost certainly Download or Reading/Leeds. The only other likely fest would have been Sonisphere but they've already got the their full quota of headliners (Metallica and Linkin Park). Seeing as Download are making a big song and dance but their "special" third headliner, you'd think it would be FNM at Download. But we'll see, there's been nothing confirmed yet in terms of where they'll play and still no genuine confirmation from the band themselves, just Patton's reps and a mention of it on a press release.

    It's sad that Jim Martin won't be involved, but c'mon he barely even had a prominent role in Angel Dust and isn't even on King For A Day(The best album they did imo).

    Major props to him for the first 3 albums, the Bill & Ted cameo and the mad hair though.

    I remember a story about Angel Dust where FNM Sans Martin wrote the entire album then shipped it to Martin to add his guitar pieces.

    Interestingly I remember watching FNM at The Sheffield Arena during the Angel Dust tour and all of the band did this disco scene at the beginning except for Martin. Me, being observant and clever as I am, thought this obviously meant something...

    No Jim Martin? So Not faith No More then: :)

    His guitar playing is so distinctive. I bet they'll be pretty great regardless, but different for sure.

    FCUTA!

    Like some have said, ioo (in our opinions ;)) some of FNM best stuff didn't have anything much to do with him anyway so it's not a big loss.

    I do think his comedy acting on Everything's Ruined deserves special praise though.
    Hark at the larks at around the 2.50m mark. Ruuuuuuunnnnnnn!

    Again, I know it's better seeing the man who created some of the music actually playing his own creations, but it's not like his replacements did a bad job of a) making their own, and b) playing his riffs and stuff.

    Besides as people keep saying plenty of good music was done without him. I like all the FNM albums, every one of them. I can't say that about all of Patton's projects.

    I only really like the first Mr Bungle album and a bit of the Tommahawk(?) stuff.

    I doubt it, Prodigy aren't big enough to headline there in my opinion. They're playing but not headlining Download. It's looking likely that if FNM do dates over here it will be at Download.

    Which will mean I'll be going to Download, simple as.

    I saw the prodigy play at Glastonbury once and they were suprisingly well suited to a massive outdoor gig. Much better than when I saw them at Brixton.

    I would argue that the Prodigy are a bigger band than FNM! Certainly in the UK.

    FCUTA!

    I remember reading an interview with them while JM was still a member, and they described their song writing as a collaborative action that involved everyone to some degree (though some were more involved with some songs than others). And you've got to admit, they went down hill after JM left.

    Angel dust >> Real thing >>>> everything else

    imho

    They are now, yeah. Still not big enough to headline Reading?Leeds.

    FNM at Download is different as they're more suited for the Download crowd.

    We'll I'm only saying that because I've already bought tickets to reading and I want to see them. Don't bring any of your sensible reasons here, sonny!

    If FNM do download then I'll probably give it a miss - my summer's already looking far too busy, and it's only febuary...

    As for not big enough...dunno. Prodigy just aren't the right "fit" for the typical download crowd as headliner. They could certainly more that pack out one of the smaller stages at reading as a headliner.

    Prodigy were amazing when touring the fat of the land. Less so afterwards. I've not heard any of the latest stuff though....

    I've heard the single, Omen, seems like fairly good Prodigy type fodder. Never been a massive fan of their recorded stuff but live they were amazing. That was Fat of the Land era I saw them....

    I've always felt that the Prodigy are naturally far more suited to playing tents and indoors. A big open stage (especially if it's not dark) for a group like them just doesn't seem 'right'. Who raves in the light?
