Black Devil Disco Club is the pseudonym of Bernard Fevre, one half of the duo responsible for the lost 1978 disco classic of the same name, and responsible for a 2004 album that people believed to be the work of Aphex Twin and Luke Vibert. The Circus album features feat. Nancy Sinatra, Afrika Bambaataa, Faris Badwan (the Horrors), YACHT, Jon Spencer (Blues Explosion), Aja Emma (Cosmetics), CocknBullKid, Nancy Fortune and Nicolas Ker (Poni Hoax).
Having been joined by drummer Leah Shapiro of The Raveonettes, San Francisco rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club follow-up to 2008's instrumental and experimental record 'The Effects Of 333'. Returning to the melodic country gospel of 'Howl' (2005), while also referring heavily to their self-titled2001 debut's hard-hitting sound, 'Beat The Devil's Tattoo' is a powerful record full of fuzzy bass and guitar swagger. Peter Hayes and Robert Been sound as determined and relentless as ever.
Baby 81 is an album by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. It is their fourth studio album and was released on April 30, 2007 in Europe and on May 1, 2007 in the U.S.. The album features a harder, more raw sound compared with their previous record Howl. It was also a studio comeback for drummer Nick Jago who was unable to participate during the recordings of Howl (other than the last track recorded during the sessions, 'Promise'). A DualDisc edition of the album was set to be released on May 1 in the U.S.; however, it has since been canceled. The album debuted at number 46 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 14,000 copies in its first week.
