That would be amazing. A Mr. Bungle reunion would be amazing as well but that’s not going to happen in this life time. Or if it is Patton won’t be singing in it. I could see a FNM reunion though and if anyone could make it happen these days I think Coachella could arrange it. Patton has joked for years about how many suitcases of money it would take for him to commit to that. The neat thing with the festival shows is that you could also have the various side projects on the bill as well. Imperial Teen, Peeping Tom… hell, just Patton in a lounge tent doing the Loveage album would be a hoot.
Faith No More were waaaay ahead of their time and dominated the European festival shows over a decade ago. A lot of people overlook it, but my favorite era of FNM was the late 90s, fancy suit era of FNM. Check out how Patton just nails their last song, he’s almost channeling Elvis at the end. That’s a very holy and sacred bond, the connection between a lead singer and his drummer. Damn, Faith No More was not just a great band, but Patton was one of the most interesting stage performers ever.
Yo, Faith No More.
Think about it, Coachella.
