3rd: 'I would describe your music as being 60's music played by The Black Angels on acid. I am right'? BDM: 'Hit the nail right on the head there'!
We are psychedelic garage rock four piece band from Hull. We play Heavy Garage Rock & Roll with psych tendencies. Since we received the City of Culture the buzz of the city has been great. We’ve got some ace festivals like Humber Street Sesh, Freedom Festival and Trinity Festival all giving bands a great platform, not to mention the music scene really picking up. Exciting times!
Right now, we’re really working on our sound and song writing style – we’re 4 EP’s in now and want to stir things up and push ourselves. No use running on the spot after all! We’re taking influence from all kinds of different areas at the moment, from 60’s garage to Nirvana, to CAN to Pink Floyd. Always keeping an open mind. We recently covered Kim Fowley's The Trip. Kim was a fantastic producer, when you look into his work it’s surprising when you see who he worked with and how highly regarded he was in the music industry. Arthur Lee saw Kim stood at a bus stop down Sunset Blvd as he was driving past so pulled over and said 'Kim Fowley doesn't get the bus'. He was truly a legend!
2015 will be really busy for us. We supported The Jesus And Mary Chain and met Alan McGee. We’ve got around 10 festivals booked in at the moment that we’re really excited for and then we’re working on a few tours for the end of the year. We’ll be planning to get recording again soon as well – we've got a few options on the table.
The 3rd opinion: The Black Delta Movement aka BDM are part of the continuing psych revolution from the 60's which never seemed to run out of steam. Obviously, the music has evolved but the foundations remain the same. Layered fuzz guitars, repetitive 4 chords. It's tried and tested and boy sometimes does it work. From The Seeds to the Brian Jonestown Massacre and more recently The Black Angels, psyche music has managed to appeal to musicians throughout time. However the BDM are firmly part of the new generation of psyche who are adding clear refreshing touches to an ever evolving sound. It's listening to the 60's played by The Black Angels on acid. In other words; it makes you want to smoke, listen and press repeat.
Sleeping Pills from their 2012 Lavender House EP was Third Outing's first introduction to BDM, and what an introduction. The vocals are clear, the guitar swells and yet the riffs remain catchy. It's slowly taking psyche to another level whilst avoiding the easy "pop trap" oh so many bands fall into. Essentially the music is direct. For the vocals, it's like a early Liam Gallagher mix with Tim Presley from White Fence... you get me?!
