BRMC featured on Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour

I always enjoy hearing how much other artists appreciate BRMC’s music. Guy Garvey of Elbow has mentioned his appreciation for HOWL in NME (95 of the 100 Lost Albums You Need to Know) before:

“People didn’t really get it, and nobody ever really picked up on how good it was, maybe because it was so different to their first two records, being mostly acoustic. But you can tell when you listen to it that the album is really coming from the soul. The lyrics to one of the songs, Fault Line – “Racing with the rising tide to my father’s door” – that’s poetry, that is. Those are proper, Dylan-class lyrics. But the whole album is just beautiful musically, and it was a real departure for the band.”

I didn’t know Guy Garvey had a show on BBC 6, but apparently he has recently featured BRMC on his show which is available to listen to on the BBC 6 website for 28 days.

Guy delivers his show with a shocker this week – he’s not bothered about Elvis. His theme is The Singing Detective soundtrack and his featured artist is The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Plus tunes from The Staves, Wilco and Led Zep.

Rebuild Cobb Studio & Nicgorski home.

“Our long time friends in The Cobbs need a little help and support. Last month their home studio in Philly was destroyed by fire and water damage.
This home served as a shelter from the storm for many bands over the years, including ourselves, recording much of the ‘Howl’ & ‘Beat The Devils Tattoo’ album in their tiny basement studio. The Nicgorski’s took us in, gave us a place to hide out and record, and never asked for anything in return (except for us to take their daughters 
Please help in anyway you can, thank you-
-BRMC”

Visit Billy Nicgorski’s GoFundMe campaign and help add to the fundraiser and to receive updates on the studio. Here is a little more about what happened:

“On Tuesday April 29th in the middle of the night we had a catastrophe at the studio. On the second floor of the house we had a major water overflow that spread down into the basement studio causing an electrical fire and massive water damage. It was a complete loss. We are covered by insurance but as you would expect it is only covering a small portion of the damage.

We really need your help to bring back the studio and to rebuild our lives. If you know me you know it’s really hard for me to ask for help. A friend suggested that I put this together.

Thanks for all of your support. It means everything to me to get the studio back and to fix my home.

Thanks
Billy -Paul -Maria Nicgorski Ryan Bernstein”
