BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB


"All You Do is Talk" live


SHORT BIOGRAPHY:

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club was formed in 1998 in San Francisco. In the beginning the band played hard rock influenced by British bands like Led Zeppelin, but their recent albums show are more varied musical approach, with the “Howl” album showing an acoustic almost Dylan-like side of the group.

the group had their self-titled debut album released on Virgin Records in 2001. The album made an immediate impact in the music world as part of the 'garage revolution'.

The vocals are shared between bassist Robert Levon Been and guitarist Peter Hayes who met at high school in San Francisco Bay and soon formed a band. They met with Englishman Nick Jago, who had moved to California with his parents.

In 2008 Jago left B.R.M.C. to replaced by drummer Leah Shapiro of the Raveonettes; whether this is a permanent sitation is yet uncertain.

Peter Hayes: Vocals, guitar, bass, synthesizer.
