Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

“I tend to be a little more proud of something after knowing if it’s connected with somebody. “

THE WILD ONES

BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB
Words by Maggie Gulasey for Volume 008
Twice in my short life I have found myself immersed in the potent butterflies of love, doused with nervousness, excitement, and a fleck of fear—but not for another person.  Rather, it’s been for the extraordinary and profoundly authentic passions in life that have illuminated me simple existence.

My first love affair came to fruition when I encountered live music at a young age. Some astute individuals sang, “When you fall in love, you know you are done.” Though lacking the talent for mastering an instrument, I eagerly devoured the music, and I indeed knew I was done; music was forever going to be a part of my lifeblood, even if that meant supporting the melodic experts from the business or the avid-fan side of things.

The second time my heart was kidnapped occurred the moment I first rode a motorcycle. Nothing can match how those two wheels make me feel. I truly came alive with the world at my side, experiencing life in a unique and more gratifying way aboard my beautiful vintage two-stroke.

Both music and my motorcycle enable a mental departure from the tedious rigors that often swallow daily life, allowing me to recall and enjoy the simple magic this world grants. Once in a blue moon my two lovers delightfully harmonize, creating a motorcycle and rock ‘n’ roll utopia. I have found this elusive nirvana in the band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club…

Robert Been of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

This is your first full tour in the United States in a while! What about this tour are you most excited for?

The timing of it. We’ve been working in the studio writing new songs and so we’ll be able to finally play some new songs for fans live before the album comes out. That’s always fun playing things live before people have heard the record.

Your tourmates this time around are Death from Above. Have you gotten to see them live before?

Leah has, she lived in NYC for a while right before joining BRMC and she was a fan, got to see them over there. I dig their records but somehow we never were in the same city at the same time playing shows, so we missed out.

If you could collaborate with Death from Above on any song live onstage (yours, theirs, or a cover), what would it be?

Ha, we were talking about doing something together live possibly, but I can’t let the cat out of the baggy.

Say you’re on the road, and you have a few fast food options coming up… which drive-thru do you pull through, and what do you order?

Pete probably needs his Starbucks. I need the tastiest burgers. And Leah always just wants to get out of there fast, and to the gig more than anything.

Tell us about the first concert you ever went to.

I traveled around with my dad’s band The Call when I was just a kid, so I remember them touring with Peter Gabriel on the Shock the Monkey tour. That was fun, I remember liking Peter’s face all painted up like a monkey. I was really into monkeys back then.

Who are you excited to see in the crowd this year, either while on tour, at a festival, or during your off time?

There are a lot actually, over the years we’ve had some of the most diehard fans in the states that travel from show to show with us. Sometimes you even forget that they aren’t officially on the tour working or something because they are usually more punctual and reliable than our own crew even. But they’re always good to see once we start up again. Some of them move on over the years and like have a baby or something and then don’t travel as hardcore, but most will still come out at least in their hometown and catch up.

Hoy empieza todo con Ángel Carmona – Los fantasmas de BRMC – 15/07/14

Robert and Peter of BRMC were on a morning show “Hoy empieza todo con Ángel Carmona” on Radio 3 in Spain, in case you missed it – there’s a podcast/archive which is embedded below: the actual interview portion starts around 1:27:54 . They talk a little about their recent festival appearance at 101 Sun Festival.

Hoy empieza todo con Ángel Carmona – Los fantasmas de Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – 15/07/14 15 jul 2014 Recibimos a Robert Heem y Peter Hayes, integrantes de Black Rebel Motorcycle Club que en estos días están en España presentando su álbum ‘Spectre at the feast’. Un disco muy influido por la muerte de Michael Heem, antiguo íder de The Call, padre de Robert y mentor de la banda. Una circunstancia que ha añadido si cabe más carga emocional al rock oscuro y poderoso de BRMC. Este fue el principal contenido de un programa en el que también recordamos a Ian Curtis (Joy Division) en el día en que habría cumplido 58 años y escuchamos canciones de grupos y artistas como Talk Talk, St. Vincent, Jack White, Caribou, Klaxons o Berri Txarrak, entre muchos otros.

BRMC Graffiti Guerrilla

This video was posted a couple weeks ago and it’s great to see a full article (in French) on the artists! Excerpt of the article through Google Translate:

“This beautiful graffiti is the result of a collaboration between Diskaerosol , graffiti artist Charly and Aurélie Compain a Berruyère that after working in the music industry, is involved in the creation of music and video. What inspired this project? The American rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC dubbed) .

The duo decided to imagine and realize a graffiti referring to BRMC, visual novel. He had to act fast, “so that it fits with the French group tour ( from February 5 to 24, note ).  “On January 17, the duo moved under the bridge bypass: Diskaerosol going all day spray paint in hand, then Aurelie Compain filmed the whole execution of the work. “We arrived at 10 am and did not stop until the last ray of sunshine! “She recalls.

She shot a video edited in fast motion where you can see, about 4 minutes, the fresco rise gradually. Music by BRMC, obviously.”
