Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - 'Hate The Taste'

BRMC have been in the medley game for donkey’s years, and here roll out the knockout combo of Primal Scream’s ‘Country Girl’ and T.Rex’s ‘Get It On’. It’s about as ground-breaking as a candyfloss drill, but when they get stuck into...

BRMC are a band who once looked doomed to an eternity in the graveyard of goth for being miserable bastards, making a rubbish second album and that incident with the inflatable penis. Yet miraculously, these days they are more than adept at...
