A Very Small Piece Of The Coachella Lineup Revealed

As the music-obsessive enclaves of the Internet wait for the allegedly forthcoming announcement of the lineup for Coachella—and the festival’s employees post coy messages to Twitter that will only fan the message-board flames—one persistent reunion rumor has been debunked: Faith No More, sadly, will not be getting back together under the desert moonlight. But all is not lost for fans of former lead singer/constant vocal experimenter Mike Patton who have the urge to sweat: Patton is scheduled to play a set with the beatboxer Rahzel, according to Billboard. The two apparently have a long-in-the-works album languishing in a vault somewhere, and Rahzel was one of the many artists who helped out with Patton’s Peeping Tom project a couple of years back. After the jump, a clip of the pair performing Kelis’ “Milkshake” in 2004.

You know, much as I loved Faith No More, it would be kind of awesome if one of those Don’t Look Back “classic albums performed” festivals booked a run-through of California. Don’t you think?
