Robert Levon Been Reddit AMA tomorrow!

Posted earlier today (by Robert) on BRMC’s social media channels:

I will be live on Reddit ‘AMA’ Tomorrow. Tuesday @ 4pm UK time / 9am Pacific Time. 
There’s been a lot that’s been going on. So literally anything from the 20th anniversary of B.R.M.C.’s first album, to this crazy ass film score (…and everything in between). I’ll do my best to remember the last 2 decades and what the hell just happened. 
I also personally really just like hearing stories from you guys since there’s so much shared history, and memories can get lost when locked inside the head all alone. 
PS hopefully Pete&Leah will get inspired to do an AMA next… But for now i’m first up to the plate-

Link to the Reddit AMA:

I am Robert Levon Been, one of founding members of the band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. I spent the last year during lockdown composing the score for Paul Schrader’s film ‘The Card Counter’ – out now, and a BRMC 20th Anniversary thing that’s coming, so before I completely pass out, Ask me anything… from movies

 

“Trilogy (Part 1) May Never Be Done”

A new old BRMC track was posted earlier today is available to listen to on Soundcloud!

“Trilogy (Part 1) May Never Be Done”

Thought we’d share with all of you, a found, lost one (Not on the vinyl record). This song was an 11 minute 3 part song with a small tuning change in the middle and no name, so Trilogy became the working title. This was one of the last songs recorded before moving to Los Angeles. With the 1st and last guitar I’d ever break on purpose.

The tunning is somewhere between C# G# C# G G# C# @ 435 or a flat C# @440.

All the original tuning pegs split/broke on me so these were my custom fixes. After using a small locking plier for tuning. I finally ended up using solder to create my own pegs.

20th Anniversary Vinyl Box Set & Tee

http://hyperurl.co/brmcboxset

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of our first release, B.R.M.C. We wanted to celebrate this milestone with you, so we’ve put together a special 20th Anniversary Vinyl Box Set that includes a double gatefold of the original album with bonus songs plus a 3rd Vinyl disc of songs from that period that we’ve never released before, all newly mixed & mastered. We’re also including a special hard-bound book of photos taken by Ken Schles, who did the cover image for the album.

This is available for immediate pre-order at the link above. This 20th Anniversary Deluxe Box will be very limited. If you’re feeling nostalgic and like us, grown out, worn out, thrown out or straight lost it. We’ve done our best to make some of the original B.R.M.C. t-shirts, to swat the moths messing with your other favorite bands shirts.

Mercy of Man and the Music that Inspired The Card Counter

Posted earlier today on BRMC’s Facebook page:

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0birIEVpDshr9DUpkzIz8c… Mercy of Man and the music that inspired The Card Counter.

This was a crazy ride of exploring many different colors/sounds/tones for so many months. If you’re curious what inspired me while working on the soundtrack, and what I was listening to while composing, then you’ll enjoy this. Mostly for all the super nerds out there, ha. But yeah, check out the playlist on Spotify now.
