#002: Dillinger Escape Plan - “Farewell, Mona Lisa”
Non-metalheads, give this until 3:30 before giving up. The Faith No More for 2010.
Ben Weinman, guitarist: I remember being very young, very little and being home from school sick. On this really shitty Casio keyboard… I think “Greensleeves” was the demo… I remember poking out Faith No More songs on it.
Greg Puciato, singer: I saw the “Epic” video, and it was different than anything I’d ever seen. The same couple of months I saw that, I heard Primus and Bad Brains and Fishbone and Living Colour and all this stuff that kind of blew my world apart. And Faith No More was the one band out of all those bands that showed me you could do all this other stuff with heavy music. It completely changed my course from thinking that metal singers were just people that barked into microphones in one key like Tom Araya.
Producer D-Animals: “Everything about my city inspires me. From the urban to suburban areas. I grew up in the outer mission where there was all types of nationalities and beliefs around. San Francisco is like a mini New York in that regard. You can walk downtown and be inspired by anything.” [via My City]
