Faith No More at Brixton Academy, London, 10 June 2009

Faith No More playing their first European reunion show (after more than ten years) at Brixton Academy, just prior to their performances at Download Festival and Reading/Leeds Festival.

It was the band’s sole London date and their only UK non-festival headline show. There was a general ban on press that night – apparently they weren’t looking for any publicity due to the sold out gig designed to be simply ‘for the fans’, since they weren’t promoting any new releases.

I was one of just a handful of lucky photographers allowed to shoot the gig, which easily matched their performances of over a decade ago for dynamism, eclecticism and power.

In this shot vocalist Mike Patton plays the suave, crooner role before letting loose in time-honoured scream-fest style as the set progressed.

Infinite thanks to FNM’s bassist Bill Gould for giving me access to this show!
