The Brian Jonestown Massacre headline Australian Tour – February 2010

To celebrate the release of Who Killed Sergeant Pepper, the Brian Jonestown Massacre have announced they will be heading to Australia in 2010. With the addition of Matt Hollywood, this is as close to the original line up as we are ever going to see on stage.

Recorded across 2009 between Iceland & Berlin, the Brian Jonestown Massacre move forward with their new full length album , Who Killed Sergeant Pepper?”.

Working with musicians of the likes of Will Carruthers (ex Spacemen 3 & Spiritualized), Unnur Andrea Einarsdottir (who recorded vocals on the last BJM album) & Felix from the Russian band Amazing Electronic Talking Cave and various musicians from France, Germany, & Iceland, this is BJM’s most multi-cultured and inspired release to date.

13 tracks ranging from ambient bhangra beats, to rock, to shoe gaze, to the gypsy influences of Eastern Europe and then back again to the swirling psychedelic sound that has won the band a devoted legion of followers around the globe, Who Killed Sergeant Pepper is a high water mark in a career full of brilliant releases.

Australian fans will not only be the first territory to receive the album, but will also receive the bonus EP ‘One’ with their copy of the album.

Interview with The Black Ryder’s Scott Von Ryper

Interview: Bek Grealy
Black Ryder‘Buy the Ticket, take the Ride’ The Black Ryder‘s Scott Von Ryper (SVR) talks with Bek Grealy (BG)
The Black Ryder album ‘Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride’ out on ‘The Anti Machine Machine’ and EMI, November 2009

BG: How’s the live music scene working out for you at the moment? Had any recent gigs?

SVR: No we haven’t actually, we have a show coming up in Melbourne in mid November, and we had an exhibition in Sydney at the Monster Children Gallery, with a pre album listening party and the photos shown were taken from our video clip shoot. It gave the attendees a chance to listen to the sounds before the album is launched.

BG: Did any of the content, or ideas come from the previous band you both worked together in, “The Morning After Girls” to establish The Black Ryder?

SVR: No, I don’t think so, the bands are very different musically, and Aimee and I joined The Morning After Girls a little later on, so they already had a pretty clear direction. Whereas the Black Ryder, we are the creators, we write the music and we record it.
