Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – B.R.M.C.

Listened: Thursday May 20

BRMC hold a special place in my heart – B.R.M.C. is an album that kept me sane in those years right out of college, those years where you flail around trying to make your way in the Real World.

BRMC are high up on the Loudest Shows I Have Ever Seen list. I also have memories of a short burly English guy in front of us when they opened for Spiritualized at the Warfield, rock-jigging happily through all their songs and howling for more when their set ended. The band was immediately very popular in Britain (I recall that Oasis talked them up a great deal so that helped), so I think this guy was really happy to be enjoying their show at the front of the crowd, since they were too popular for him to do so at home.

I love all the waves of reverb in their music, the propulsive tempos, and the spiritual feel of the lyrics. “Salvation” is one of my favorite songs ever.
