Music from The FAQ - About the Project
is a fantastic comprehensive resource for the entire history of KISS including band member information, discography, chart history, live performances, archives and much more. In addition, the Web site houses the
forum where hundreds (thousands?) of KISS fans from across the globe gather to discuss all matters relating to their favorite band.
A few months ago, we came to the realization that many of the members of the forum were also musicians themselves. Subsequently, a few of us conceptualized an idea for a KISS Faq tribute CD and posted a thread to gauge forum interest. The response was overwhelmingly positive and we began receiving many submissions. In keeping with the supportive spirit embodying the project, every single contribution was accepted to be included on the CD.
With participants having retreated to their respective home studios to polish their tracks, the compilation was completed and assembled on May 5th 2008.
From The Faq (released May,
2008) contains 23 tracks of creative and unique self-produced KISS covers spanning all different eras of the band. While the songs were not produced with the benefit of a big-budget recording studio, the creativity, quality of the material and unique performances shine nonetheless. Response from the KissFaq community has been extremely supportive — we can sincerely say this is one of the most original and best KISS compilations we have ever heard!
A second compilation Music
From The Faq II
is put online August 2008 and contains 19 tracks.
From The Faq III followed February
We feel this project is a testament to the passion and positive thread binding the KISS community. And, lest we forget, it is another testament to our love for the most important element of KISS: the music.
