Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

I recently caught up with their bassist and co-vocalist Robert Turner while he was backstage at the U.K.'s Leeds festival:

"The whole fucking point of art is to question what's going on. That's art's purpose and artists have every right in the world to do that." –Peter Hayes, June 2003

How the usually reticent Black Rebel Motocycle Club are challenging the climate of paranoia and fear created by the US government with their forceful new album.

BRMC Interviews

Peter on art and culture from Silent Uproar:

"Once again, it’s up to the musicians and artists to create that type of music but at the same time it’s got to be taken care of by everybody and respected. It is being sold to people as look you can make a lot of money from this and boom and then you’re gone. I don’t know. There’s nothing to respect about that and nothing to hold onto about that. That’s why it is the way it is really. When that turns around, as far as culture respects art. Writing respects movies. You know, if you respect a movie for having a place as art, not just as entertainment, but as art and culture. Marking a statement of some sort. I think that’s a good place to start, you know. It’s got to be presented that way and it’s not being presented that way."
