Mike Patton is now officially the first ever artist to have been nominated twice for this podcast. His previous inclusion was in the guise of Tomahawk, and their second album Mit Gas. The public rightfully decided that this was worthy of inclusion in our discography. Now it's time to see if Faith No More's fifth album, King for a Day… Fool for a Lifetime, will join it.
Chris has been talking about doing this album for bloody ages. Him and Mark are huge FNM fans and Chris has a very compelling case as to why this album is their unsung classic. Similarly, Dave has dabbled with the band in his past - enjoying The Real Thing and Angel Dust in particular - so for him it was something of a trip down memory lane.
We talk very extensively about this band, as you'd expect. Which means we're gracing you with another two parter. That's right, we're over a month and a half into 2021 and we've yet to do a single album in one episode. Whoops.
We talk about the band's history and give their albums a good going over here. As usual it is replete with interesting facts, questionable patter and snippets of banging tunes. Enjoy!
