Get a taste of the LP with a live cut of “Spread Your Love” filmed at LEVITATION 2013

In the early 2000s, San Francisco's Black Rebel Motorcycle Club were part of a vanguard of acts spearheading a garage rock revival - each a beacon of the staying power of gritty guitar music: The White Stripes and Dirtbombs in Detroit, The Kills in London, The Strokes and Interpol in New York, The Raveonettes in Copenhagen - the list goes on. Each made their mark, and BRMC’s take on rock and roll in the 20th century was particularly alluring - dark and atmospheric, their debut LP took them immediately out of the underground and onto stages worldwide, bringing their rock and roll manifesto to a new generation of music fans and artists:

I fell in love with the sweet sensation
I gave my heart to a simple chord
I gave my soul to a new religion
Whatever happened to you?
Whatever happened to our rock 'n' roll?

BRMC’s answer to that question was loud and clear: rock ‘n’ roll is here to stay. For up and coming bands like Austin’s The Black Angels, BRMC’s approach to music rang true: music was a religion, a way of life:

“After seeing BRMC 20 years ago at Emo’s, with The Warlocks, we knew rock and roll was still alive and well. The band's sound was so tough, they were undeniable, pure energy. That show set us on this path and we never really looked back.” - Alex Maas, The Black Angels

Fast forward to 2013 and BRMC were headlining the Friday night of The Black Angel’s Austin Psych Fest, bringing it all full circle. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Live at Levitation chronicles that moment in time, and the band’s no holds barred performance that night.

“It was a great surprise to find out that concert had even been recorded, it’s always cool to find vaulted live shows like this that still have a little fight left in them. With great piss & vinegar, comes great responsibility." - Robert Levon Been

The multi-track recordings were assembled and mixed in the studio of BRMC co-founder Peter Hayes, bringing these tracks back into the light.

Due to the nature of making a swirl/splatter vinyl record, each record is one of a kind. The vinyl you receive may look very different from our photo. Swirl/Splatter vinyl is more prone to surface noise and imperfections.
