On August 19th, Faith No More will release a remastered reissue of their landmark We Care A Lot debut LP. Not only will this be the first time the record has been available in 20 years, but it will feature new and never-before-released bonus material. Alongside demos of “Greed”, “Mark Bowen”, “Arabian Disco”, and “Intro”, you’ll find versions of a pair of live recordings from a January 13th, 1986 concert at San Francisco’s I-Beam. Today, the band has shared rare video of one of those songs, “The Jungle”.
The clip demonstrates just why Faith No More’s brand of art-rock wildness took the alternative world by storm in the mid-’80s. Frontman Chuck Mosley’s bass-y warble ducks and dodges around the jabs of bassist Billy Gould and keyboardist Roddy Bottum’s “hey!” calls. Towards the end of the spacey jam, they even break into a cover of Tears for Fears’ “Shout”. Check out the video above.
We Care A Lot is out August 19th via Gould’s own Koolarrow Records. iTunes pre-orders come with an insta-grat download of “The Jungle”, the title track, and “As The Worm Turns”.
Along with We Care A Lot, Faith No More will release deluxe reissues of King For a Day … Fool For a Lifetime and Album of the Year.
