Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: Screaming Gun EP

In October of 2001, bluesy-garage-rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (so named after Marlon Brando's crowd of ruffians in the 1953 film The Wild One) released a five song EP of b-sides called The Screaming Gun EP. Not commercially available anymore, this was only sold in limited quantites at shows, and enjoyed brief chart-topping success on college radio stations in 2001/2002. It contains a handful of tunes recorded for their self-titled 2001 debut album that were cut from the final release. It's a nice collection, enjoyable front to back (I especially have been digging the swampy muddle of "Down Here" and the dusty harmonica of the title track).

Down Here - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
At My Door - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Hey Heather -
don't know how i lived up until yesterday when i discovered your blog. it is fabulous!
some tunes for you to check out:
Engineers, soulsavers(with mark lanegan on vox), A Year In the Wilderness from John Doe(ex X guitarist and thespian goes soul-searching), and in honor of the covers i've loved discovering here, try 6 & 1/2 by Jon Auer (especially sweet cover of Ween's Baby Bitch) and Nineteeneighties from Grant Lee Phillips.
Thanks for the genius!

Weird, the whole server (fuelfriendsblog.com) seems to be down and I have no idea why. Usually when it does this it comes right back up, so I guess keep trying. It's nothing I did or can do.

Stumbled upon your site when searching for more infor on the Hawaii '78 song Pearl Jam sang at a show in Hawaii last year. Love the plethora of "new music" you have introduced me to. Living in Madison, WI we get to see some pretty good acts. Your site makes me realize we are still missing out on so much. Thanks again ;)

Saw a BRMC live show a few weeks ago. They were outstanding. I like everything I've heard from them, and I'm sure I'll like these too.

Any chance of reposting these again? I just picked up the "American X" EP after coming across it in a local music store. I wasn't even aware it existed. It got me in the mood to see what else from BRMC was out there that I didn't know about.

Ughhhh! As often as I pop into your blog, I missed this one. After actually hearing Fail Safe live for the first time, now I'm trying to find the EP. Any chance that this can be uploaded again?
