Biography

Somewhere between the five full-length albums and a decade-long road test across the highways of the world, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club found their way.

Eleven years after bassist Robert Levon Been and guitarist Peter Hayes started playing gigs around their hometown of San Francisco, the duo has now started over, with a new vision, a new drummer, and the gift of a future ... Read more in Amazon's Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

More poised and less self-conscious after two years of continuous touring, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club has taken a huge artistic leap forward with their second album, stripping away much of florid guitar work and anxious drumming featured on their self-titled debut and replacing it with a sleeker sound. On their previous disc, you could barely make out their enigmatic and half-formed lyrics buried underneath the feedback and thick psychedelic swirls, but they've fixed all that and have turned out a collection of tetchy but intelligent post-modern protest songs that are a huge departure from their earlier compositions about the capricious nature of love. Titles like "Stop," "Six Barrel Shotgun," "(Kill the) US Government" crackle with anger and confrontation, much like MC5's "Kick Out the Jams" was to earlier generations. No longer sounding like Jesus & Mary Chain retreads, BRMC has carved out their own niche by combining dark poetry with a sharp disgust with the way the world is being run. --Jaan Uhelszki

Nothing new I know...and I say so what. This is the best Rock 'n' Roll album to come out this year. Now let me preempt and say that BRMC are not new to the scene. Robert "Been" Turner (bass, guitar and vocals) is the son of Michael Been from the fine 80's band The Call. Ironically enough the sound you will find here is a polished and refurbished 80's sound. When I purchased the first release I salivated and delved into my crates pulling out old vinyl from Love and Rockets, Jesus and Mary Chain, Gene Loves Jezebel (pre House of Dolls), Teenage Fanclub, Bauhaus, Tones On Tail, Joy Division etc etc ...The influences were obvious. However Robert, Peter and Nick have a much stronger, crisper and tighter sound. On the new release "Take Them On..." the production is hot. Much like Iggy Pop's album "Raw Power" it is recorded in the red... and as for the lyrics? Well let's say they are far more mature than what was pouring out of William Reid or Daniel Ash during their heyday. After at least 3 complete listens if you do not love this album get in gear to see them live. After that if you are not a fan then strap on sh*t kickers and head out to a square-dance partner because R'n'R bleeds when you are in the room.

German expressionists often thought that there were no political solutions, only spiritual ones. That is how BRMC present their music often. They just want you to hear the music and keep it to yourself. Their garage punk is for people who have heard of Spiritualized and Primal Scream. It doesn't have the joy and bravado of other rock and roll bands. "Stop" and "Six Barrel Shotgun" sound like tracks from their first album. If it is not broke why fix it? Why is anyone thinking that BRMC is going to do a prog rock album? Other songs like "Generation" and "US Government" deal with the disconnected feel of the times. They are questioning the current slide of young people into cliché, cynicism, and being jaded. They have hope in their music, even though their politics are more personal. This band has the coolest name, but who knows if anyone will discover how good they truly are?

I bought this on an impulse because it was only 5.99, and I am glad I have it. It sounds like a darker, more droning version of the Strokes (pardon the Strokes comparison.) It has some really great, driving songs. Also, there are some very nice slower songs.
Buy it and decide on your own if you like it. You won't be disappointed. Also get the new Raveonettes cd, these two cd's complement each other well.

Black Rebel Motorcycle has proven that rock can still be played the way it should be in their last album and in this one. Bands like them are rare these days and I'm just glad they are the group that they are. This album is a great follow up to their first. It kicks off with their new single "Stop" which is a totally kickin song. Nice and catchy from the first listen. The whole album is full of great songs like "Six Barrel Shotgun", "US Government" and "Suddenly". This album is similar to their last one in a few ways of sound but it is incredible and I suggest it to anyone who wants a taste of what real rock is like.

The follow-up 'Take Them On, On Your Own' basically sounds like the BRMC's debut CD Part 2, perhaps with a little more rock, with a little more swagger. Sometimes not changing your musical formula isn't such a bad thing, especially if a bands previous album was strong. You can still hear that Jesus And Mary Chain influence, yet at the sametime they're kinda shifting towards more high-energy rock. People have always described BRMC's sound in fancy colorful terms, Neo Psychadelic, Noise Pop, distortion with fuzzbox vocals, etc. But if you look past all of that, it's basically rock and roll. Just like the debut, the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club still has that dark ominous swagger, but just might rock a little harder this time around.

Hey, have you heard the news? Excitingly, rock and roll protest is back - all it took was the Bush administration to make it an interesting, nay, vital subject. Last year we had Sleater-Kinney and Steve Earle with daring commentary on the events surrounding September 11th - this year we have LA drone rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club yowling: "I bought my legs from the US government to keep me in line." An interesting new level of standoffishness from a typically languid group, and Take Them On, On Your Own is harder and much more furious than their eponymous debut album. Still, this remains the BRMC that you know and love, as evidenced by lead single "Stop" which shows all their trademarks still in place. "Generation," "Us Government" and "Ha Ha High Babe" all swagger mercilessly, while songs like "Shade of Blue" waft by beautifully. This is a startlingly exciting record, and BRMC have succeeded at the hardest hurdle - they have overcome the sophomore album slump. The future suddenly looks a whole lot brighter.

Impressive new release from this band. It's dark, spacey, moody and catchy. Yeah there's a number of other popular bands all doing the same kind of thing right now, and a select few of them are very good....BRMC is one of them, along with Interpol, The Doves, The Raveonettes, The Dandy Warhols and Long Wave, for instance.
If any or all of those bands interest you, BRMC just may tickle your fancy and entertain you with 2 CD's full of lots of repeat listening and songs for the ages.
Much like the Doves, this band is underappreciated!
