Black Rebel Motorcycle Club bring 'Specter At The Feast' to London
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club played a mammoth set at London’s Brixton Academy last night (March 27) as they brought their new album 'Specter At The Feast' to the capital.

The leather clad trio showcased 10 tracks from their sixth studio LP, kicking off the show with their cover of The Call's 'Let The Day Begin'. The track is a tribute to bassist Robert Levon Been's late father Michael, who played in the '80s band and was heavily involved in BRMC's work.

They went on to play a host of hits from their backcatalogue including 'Whatever Happened To My Rock 'N' Roll (Punk Song)', 'Ain't No Easy Way' and 'Spread Your Love'. Acknowledging the crowd's reaction and the trio's return to the capital for the first time in two years, Levon Been declared early on: "Thank you guys very much, it's real fucking good to be back."

Later in the show he sat down the front of the stage for an acoustic version of 'Mercy'. Guitarist Peter Hayes also performed solo on the piano for 'Feel It Now' before he strapped on an acoustic guitar for 'Devil's Waitin'. Towards the end of their set they played new track 'Sometimes The Light' for the first time before wrapping up the show with 'Lose Yourself'.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club played:

'Let the Day Begin'
'Rival'
'Red Eyes And Tears'
'Hate The Taste'
'Whatever Happened To My Rock 'N' Roll (Punk Song)'
'Beat the Devil's Tattoo'
'Ain't No Easy Way'
'Berlin'
'666 Conducer'

Earlier, The Big Pink debuted four tracks from their forthcoming new album including 'Air', 'Dance With Today', 'Take Me' and 'Hold On'. Performing without his partner in crime Milo Cordell who quit the band earlier this year, frontman Robbie Furze performed with drummer Vicky Jean Smith and a new keyboard player for a short set dominated by new songs many of which were more instant and anthemic than much of their last album 'Future This'. They ended their set with their 2009 hit single 'Dominos'.
