Black Rebel Motorcycle Club : Spread Your Love

Ah, the lighter side ofBlack Rebel Motorcycle Club. They might take their vocation very seriously indeed but that doesn’t preclude the genius likes of ‘Spread Your Love’ - or, as it’s probably known in all the most disreputable bars round town, ‘Spread Your Bassline’.

A slutty strut of glitter-rock promise, not only does it flash its hormones with intent, it once again exposesBlack Rebel Motorcycle Club
’s effortless understanding of rock’n’roll dynamics. Even without its status as a gloriously inappropriate addition to the 'CD:UK' schedules - "Thanks, Will! And now here’s a song about paranoid, altered-states lust packed with dubious fire metaphors!" - it feels excitingly illicit, as if the world’s megastores should wrap it in brown paper for you before you walk out past the Liberty X window display.
