FAITH NO MORE. SUMMER OF ’92. INTERVIEWED BY A FIFTEEN YEAR OLD. FOR PUBLIC ACCESS. EXCELLENT.

But James Zahn of Kik Axe Music did meet Faith No More when he was fifteen — and he interviewed them for public access television. Amazing (and amazingly cool) that they consented to such an interview — they sure didn’t need the publicity.
James has been posting the eleven-part interview over at Kik Axe. Here’s a taste, in which Mike Bordin discusses the origin of the band’s name. I’ve never heard this story before, and I gotta say, it’s pretty neat.
