A recent press release from Faithless reminded us of our age. 10 years since their Netherland's concert where they had 60,000 festival-goers 'jump' to their tunes; 12 years since ‘Insomnia’; and 15 years since Rollo Armstrong met Sister Bliss in a recording studio, then came Maxi Jazz, then Jamie Catto... THEN the music.
Faithless has been playing huge summer festivals all across Europe for a long time, and this Spring the US gets three chances to experience their awesome live performance.
"I think the live arena has changed people's perceptions of us," says Sister Bliss. "We've been up there with the likes of REM and Bob Dylan, all these different kinds of music.
I've always been a real crusader for house music and what it means, that feeling inside, when something has got the right sounds and the funk and it makes you feel stuff. I want our own music to have that feeling. It's nice to be able to go out and turn heads, to hear people say, 'I don't like dance music but I quite like Faithless.'"
