Ex-Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley (the chap who sang on such classic releases as 1985’s We Care A Lot and 1987’s Introduce Yourself) has been performing throughout the US this summer under the title of the “Reintroduce Yourself” tour – as he explained recently to Alternative Nation.
But last night at a stop on the tour at Mr. Beery’s in Bethpage, New York, fans got a special treat, when none other than Faith No More keyboardist Roddy Bottum took the stage on lead vocals and guitar for a cover of Imperial Teen’s “Butch” (which saw Mosley join in on back-up vocals at the end, and Mosley’s manager, Doug Esper, adding additional vocals and percussion) of which a fan-shot video can be viewed below.
Unfortunately, the former bandmates did not perform together on any Faith No More material, although Mosley offered up renditions of “Death March” (video included below), “Anne’s Song,” and “Faster Disco” – all of which originally appeared on Introduce Yourself. Interestingly, Mosley also offered up a cover of FNM’s “Take This Bottle” – a tune from the “Mike Patton era” (originally on 1995’s King for A Day, to be exact).
Up next on the tour includes stops tonight in Newington, CT; 7/21 in Manchester, NH; 7/22 in Northampton, MA; 7/23 in Plainfield, CT; 7/24 in Salem, MA; 7/25 in Portland, ME; 7/26 in Warren, VT; 8/18 in San Francisco, CA; before wrapping up on 8/20 in Hollywood, CA; and heading over to Europe in September (venue names and ticket info for all dates can be viewed here). Also arriving on August 19th will be a reissue of the We Care A Lot album, via FNM bassist Bill Gould’s Koolarrow label.
