BLACK MOUNTAIN

Black Mountain doesn't have a creation myth, or not exactly: "Most of us were found standing 'round parties wearing similar T-shirts or shoes and nodding our heads to something cool on the stereo," Stephen McBean explains. "Others were heard from behind walls but never seen 'til years later. You share a smoke, do a shot then end up in a van together for what seems like the rest of your life."

Watch Black Mountain Play Live on Swedish National Television

The Swedish television show Klubbland recently filmed Black Mountain playing in Copenhagen.  Did you know Sweden basically has a Hulu that broadcasts awesome rock concerts, some of them featuring Jagjaguwar artists? WHAT WILL YOU COME UP WITH NEXT, SWEDEN?  Affordable modern furniture?  Mysterious blond duos with insatiable appetites for Lil Wayne and Akon?  LISBETH SALANDER?!!!!

You can watch the entire 20-minute show below, or head to the website to watch the three songs (“Wilderness Heart,” “Queens Will Play” and “Don’t Run Our Hearts Around”) individually.  The 20-minute version comes with a nice intro and interview featuring Steve McBean before the show.

Is it worth it?

Well, I always enjoy playing live.  I don’t always enjoy all the sitting around, but, you know, it’s better than working at Dairy Queen.

Photos: Black Mountain’s European Tour

Friend to Black Mountain, photographer Andy K. Bond hopped on tour with the band last month. A set of photos at his blog contains STUNNING images of the band in the some of greatest cities in Europe.  Many more photos are at his site here. Below are my personal faves.

Okay, this picture made me clasp my hands in joy.  This photo is of Black Mountain’s trusted sound engineer, Remco, feeding some new Italian friends he met. Have you ever seen cows so beautiful in your entire life?

Black Mountain very recently performed “The Hair Song” on France’s Canal Plus, and it’s awesome! My college French is a little rusty, but it appears as though Wilderness Heart was their Album of the Week. You can also watch interviews with Jeremy and Steve after the performance that are then overdubbed in en Francais.  Love it.

Black Mountain is Spinning on Spinner!
