Details of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Ticket Luck value
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - abbreviated BRMC is an American garage folk band from San Francisco, California, now in Los Angeles formed in 1998. The band is consists of Peter Hayes (guitar, bass, vocals); Robert Levon Been (guitar, bass, vocals) and Nick Jago (drums/percussion). Known for their catching brand of garage rock, folk revival, blues and heartland rock, BRMC are often referred having the influence of The Jesus & Mary Chain, Bob Dylan, The White Stripes, John Denver and The Doors.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club derived their name from Marlon Brando's motorcycle gang in the 1953 film The Wild One.
First two records were owing to late-era classic hard rock influenced by Iggy Pop And The Stooges, The Ramones, and The Doors. Their style includes softer psychedelic rock and space rock. In their third record Howl, they have presented a more concrete sound and style; having a touch of blues, folk, and trad rock.
Robert Levon Been (Bass) and Peter Hayes (guitar) both do the vocals for the band. Been and Hayes met at high school in San Francisco and quickly formed a band, writing music and playing together. Later, they met Nick Jago, who came from Devon (England) and had moved in to California to be with his parents after spending some time at Winchester School Of Art, where he was studying fine art. Been used the stage name 'Robert Turner' on the first two records, in order to avoid confusion between his fatherthe famous Michael Been of The Call.
Previously the band was named as 'The Elements' but after occurring that another band of the same name existed, they switched to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Caught up in the publicity of the music-press fueled 'New Rock Revolution' which included The Strokes and Kings of Leon in 2001 to 2003, the band ultimately created a distinction from the others in both sound and image. Their second album Take Them On, On Your Own has several songs such as Generation and US Government which openly holds criticism against United States policies, specifically, George Bush.
After being dropped by Virgin Records in 2004, Nick Jago also left the band when their summer tour ended the same year, blaming some 'internal conflict', discovered to be due to drug addiction and drinking problem, though he still had the doors open for him to return. Hayes and Been then regrouped and recorded their third album.
In 2005 the band signed contract with Echo (UK), and RCA (US) also with Jago being a part of the band again. Their third album Howl was lately exposed to widespread critical acclamation. Several of the songs on Howl are said to have been written long before the idea of the BRMC was conceived.
Their work includes the possible influence of the beat poet allen ginsberg which is evident in the title of their third, Howl, the name of Ginsberg's most celebrated work.
BRMC fourth album - Baby 81, will be released on April 30 in the UK & Europe and May 1 in the US and also have posted several songs of Baby 81 album on their Myspace page.
