Faith No More at The Brixton Academy

Caroline Sullivan, Guardian, The, 13 June 2009

FAITH NO MORE's first gig in 11 years starts on a promisingly high note. A keyboard tinkles a lullaby melody, a spotlight picks out singer Mike Patton, who's wearing a suit and tie, and - to the disbelief of anyone expecting a horrendous grunge assault - he slides into the ancient Peaches & Herb soul hit, 'Reunited'. The rest of the band, identically suited, chime in with the creamiest harmonies imaginable.

Total word count of piece: 278
