The Faint has been together as a band since 1995 (what!) but I discovered them in the mid-2000’s. I especially love the song “I Disappear” but there is plenty of great stuff from their most recent albums.
I enjoyed them in concert too, although I will say the show was more fun to listen to than try to photograph. It was dark and electronic – pretty much what you want from a Faint show – and I was thrilled I finally got to see them live.
I’ve always heard that Gang of Four was great live, even though they have a revolving door of band members. Andy Gill is the constant, and he showed it by walking on stage and throwing his guitar around – both literally and figuratively. I have never seen band members jump around and switch microphones with each other like Gang of Four (2016 edition) does – but they totally make it work. Check out their recent live album to see what I mean.
