Author Greg Prato loves details, and in this terrifically-researched book on Faith No More, he digs deep to present a comprehensive portrait of the band from their beginnings through the present. Besides poring over multiple print and online resources, he has interviewed numerous key players in the development of the band, including Jason Newsted, Gilby Clarke, Johnny Christ, Angelo Moore, Travis Stever, and many others--not to mention multiple interviews with all the band members from both FNM and Bungle.

On these pages, the band emerges as a creative and internally combustible group of musicians who danced to the beat of their own drummer. Musically they were all over the road and took elements of pop, heavy metal, industrial and other disparate textures and mixed them together to create a sound uniquely their own. Visually they were both astonishing and disturbing--like a sonic car accident.

Blending oral narrative with Prato's own insightful analyses, The Faith No More and Mr. Bungle Companion book is a bright and beautiful telling of these bands' histories. And no one does that better than Prato.
