  Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are an American rock and roll band from San Francisco, California, now based in Los Angeles.
BRMC, as they are known for short, formed in 1998, taking their name from Marlon Brando's motorcycle gang in the 1953 film The Wild One.
Caught up in the hype of the Music-press fuelled 'New Rock Revolution' which included The Strokes and Kings of Leon, the band quickly separated themselves from the others in both sound and image, proving they were very different to their contemporaries in quality, songwriting and touring mentality.

 B.R.M.C: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Whereas any hope for the return of noisy pop seemed to have evaporated, B.R.M.C and their sharp-edged guitars suddenly come to revive the flame of noisy rock in the great tradition of The Jesus & Mary Chain and Velvet Underground.
Based in Los Angeles, B.R.M.C (or Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the name of Marlon Brando's biker gang in The Wild One) combines distorted and acoustic guitars, raspy voices and pounding drums.
B.R.M.C., however, is not an untalented clone satisfied merely to mimic.

 Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: Pitchfork Live Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Here in the warehouse district of Los Angeles, BRMC is playing a secretive one-off date for select group of 200 ticket-holders to both christen the new office space for Little Radio and to test out new material before embarking on a full European tour leading up to the release of their third album, Howl.
BRMC subsequently found itself without a record label and sat on the sidelines while other members of the class of 2000 like the Strokes and White Stripes plowed full steam ahead.
The new songs that BRMC does unveil are decidedly amped and full, fitting in quite nicely with the ominous roar of "Love Burns" and "Rifles".

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club is releasing their third and finest full length to date.
If you are Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's Peter Hayes and Robert Turner, apparently parting ways with drummer Nick Jago not only resolved an overly dramatic situation, but inspired them to record an almost entirely acoustic record (with minimal contributions from Jago, who's since been rehired).
BRMC's third release, Howl, is a dramatic departure from the band's signature fuzz-heavy, Jesus & Mary Chain-inspired rock.

But the tale of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and the arduous circumstances surrounding the making of its third and finest full length, Howl, requires just such a reference.
In content and form the 13 songs are as far removed from BRMC’s previous albums--partly by design, partly because of the process--as they could be.
Strain and grope for adjectives all you want, but the best and most accurate way to describe Howl – its title inspired by group’s own vulturine spirit as much as the work of the beat poets --- is simply to say that it’s a line of demarcation in the band’s catalog.

Along with a new sound BRMC seem to have found religion too, as nearly half the songs revolve around God, the Devil, sin, and salvation.
You may feel betrayed by their sudden shift away from noise and danger, confused by the sudden change from a band of sulky post-teens with sex and danger on their minds to questioning (though still young) adults looking for salvation.
If you want your rock dirty, loud, and dangerous (though BRMC were only halfway believable when that was their image), you had better look somewhere else.

 Tower Records - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (+3 Bonus Tracks) - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
The brooding Los Angeles-based Black Rebel Motorcycle Club belies its roots in sunny California with a dark, edgy sound that is indebted to 1980s/early-'90s British shoegazer bands, particularly the architects of the sound, Jesus & Mary Chain.
While many of BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB's tunes are effective mid-tempo tracks (particularly "Awake," which unleashes majestic, Ride-like squalls of feedback), "Whatever Happened to My Rock 'N' Roll (Punk Song)" is a blistering, revved-up number that recalls the fervor of the Stooges.
Regardless of influences, the BRMC warrants attention by the sheer force of its music, making this an album for those who like their rock bold, brash, and unapologetically loud.

The progression of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club -- whose sound has been cited over the years as resembling bands from Jesus and Mary Chain to the Stooges and My Bloody Valentine -- has also coincided with the group's relocation from Los Angeles back to its home of San Francisco.

 Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: Howl (2005): Reviews
This turn for the yee-haw is a bit mystifying but hardly a mistake; Howl is exactly the cry the BRMC needed to make.
By the time the country twang of “Ain’t No Easy Way” hits with a massive drum-and-harmonica stomp, thoughts of Howl being a “Hey, let’s try this” album vanish, and the music becomes the entrancing jaunt of a band not necessarily finding itself, per se, but at least writing the best songs of its career.
Cramming together brash rock snottiness with meek country hollers is hardly uncharted territory (not that it matters), but BRMC's particular mash-up still makes for a strangely intriguing party.

 Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - B.R.M.C.
B.R.M.C. To all intents and purposes, the shoegazing scene died in the early to mid-1990s, existing only as a cult scene for those who refused to make eye contact with other humans.
It appears that no one told San Francisco three-piece Black Rebel Motorcycle Club who have produced an album which breathes new life into this supposedly dead scene.
'B.R.M.C.' is a very good album indeed that transcends its obvious influences, and any shoegazing album that has a song called 'Head Up High' reveals a refreshing sense of humour too.

San Francisco's Black Rebel Motorcycle Club weren't exactly shy about their taste for early ‘90s UK rock (Jesus and Mary Chain, Ride, Stone Roses), influences that freely permeated their debut and Take Them On, On Your Own.
Almost five years on from their BRMC debut, Howl marks a Black Rebel Motorcycle Club epiphany that sees them discarding their sinful electric past and going for a walk on deeper water.
They might have ditched just about every former BRMC ingredient bar the tonal sleeve design, but this bundle of redemption songs is a potent new chapter from a band keeping the faith.

Hayes and Been limped through the remainder of the dates, canceling a couple concerts and playing one surreal gig in Spain where a fan was practically pulled from the crowd and onto the drum kit.
Ultimately, it has to be understood that BRMC is a band that believes in the rock 'n' roll mythos - the saving grace, the excess, the exquisite burn, and all the rest of it.

Their amalgam of fuzzed-out vocals and chugging guitars over layers of droning feedback immediately brings to mind the Jesus and Mary Chain and Primal Scream.
BRMC is an impressive debut from this L.A.-based band, combining some of the best elements of druggy, droney 60's psychedelia and garage RandB rock; and on occasion, lead guitarist/vocalist Peter Hayes sounds uncannily like Roger (Jim) McGuinn of The Byrds (see "Too Real" or "Salvation").
BRMC sounds like a hybrid of the Jesus and Mary Chain and Spiritualized (there we go with comparisons again!), but they've also managed to carve out their own style such that you won't mistake them for either of the aforementioned.
