We Introduce Yourself A Lot

Wow, I had bought my ticket expecting them to sell out the day they went on sale (~early June). I thought it would be an intimate acoustic performance with Chuck Mosley and friends, but what a night it was for 1986 Faith No More to play the Troubadour. It was magnificient! They announced last week that Chuck was playing with the rest of Faith No More, sans Patton of course, to celebrate the reissue of their 1st album, We Care A Lot.

I got into FNM when Headbanger's Ball started to rotate the video for "From Out of Nowhere" and bought the cassette eons ago. After getting into FNM, I started to dig deeper for the older stuff--the 1st 2 albums. I loved the songs that Chuck Mosley sang on. About the same time, I discovered Mr. Bungle and saw them at the Palace with Melt-Banana who confused the f**k out of me that night. Bungle was on tour for Disco Volante but played whatever the hell they wanted to.

But to get back on track, Chuck Mosley performed acoustically for 25min of deep and rough cuts from his career. He even wore a black shirt that said "Failed Artist." Not so, Chuck, not so. Introduce yourself was one of my favorite albums back in the day. Here's the entire set. Oh yeah, Chuck played an additional song with the 2nd act who's name escapes my brain: Greg Jacoby? Mah, I'm tired, have school in the afternoon, but I'm pooped! Enjoy these sets!
