BRMC at Rock En Seine

27th August 2011

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. The seed that became the band was planted in 1995, when Robert Turner and Peter Hayes met while attending high school in San Francisco.
Inspired by early-'90s U.K. bands like Ride, the Stone Roses, the Jesus and Mary Chain, and My Bloody Valentine, the band creates a music that stands on the edge of darkness, but never dives in.
The sound of the band comes from everywhere and nowhere- it draws a map and embarks on a sonic road trip through American music; from howling front porch stomps on the Chattanooga and beer-sloshing Texas roadhouse rockouts, to swaggering proto-punk sneering in NYC’s basement bars.
