Founding member, and original vocalist CHUCK MOSLEY of American funk rock pioneers Faith No More, performs at Swindon’s Victoria on Thursday 6th October.
A duo show with “his mate on bongo’s” Chuck will be performing songs through out his career, including Faith No More, Bad Brains and music from the new Indoria album he has recorded vocals for.
The tour has already started, and is being well received from the reviews we have seen.
As a co-pro between Swindon’s only other long standing promoter Songs Of Praise, it only felt right to ask Ed, as he was such a fan, here’s what he had to say…
“This is a big deal for us. A really big deal. Faith No More are a band that I grew up listening to. I have the albums, the tour tickets and the festival memories. The unlikely funked up anthem “We Care A Lot” was the introduction to this band, the vocalist in the day-glow video a dread-locked figure of kinetic energy and a compelling focus to the band. That vocalist was Chuck Mosely, who after performing on their first 2 albums sadly soon parted ways with the band to forge his own path (although ending up for a time in US punk stalwarts Bad Brains was not a bad next move). That path has somehow brought him to The Victoria”
The tour is named the “Reintroduce Yourself World tour” and is a nod to the fact that Chuck has been back playing with FNM, on a “first two records” style show.
Support comes in the shape of local folk-punk troubadour Phil Cooper and his witty and wonderful songs and Bristol’s answer to Anna Calvi, the electrifying Elea Calvet who will terrify and mesmerise in equal measure.
Tickets are £10 in advance from seetickets.com or The Victoria. £12 on the door. Join the Facebook group HERE.
