Live clip for ‘Around The Sun’

We struck upon many beautiful sceneries when we crossed Spain last week, so we decided to catch some of the desert on film. We also brought a small field recorder and played an acoustic rendition of ‘Around The Sun’. It felt like the right time and the right place. Enjoy.

Some shots from the road

See ya next year! Take care, Barry & Gura!

Two Tall Southern Tribute Tales

Hey friends,

A lot of you came out to the Southern Tibute shows we participated in, so thank YOU for your presence and ambiance! We had a great time paying hommage to the greats of Lynyrd Skynyrd (January 23rd and 24th) and The Allman Brothers Band (February 6th). As for now, these are the only dates we did these tribute shows.

A great deal of the fun was the line-up of both tributes, which allowed us to work together with some great musicians and personalities. The Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute consisted of Mark from Dead Man’s Curse on vocals, Mike & the Mellotones’ Lorenzo on drums and Marike Jager’s HJ. Together with BBR’s Jaap on bass, Simon and Mike on guitar they played a good 70 minutes of Skynyrd classics. Freeeeeeeeeeeebird!

The Allman Brothers Band Tribute was centered around De Staat’s Vedran on guitar. He choose his bandmate Tim and Drive Like Maria’s Bram on drums, DeWolff’s Pablo and Robin on guitars and organ, Soylent Green’s Marco on vocals and BBR’s Mike on bass. Luckily enough there was a cunning man who brought his video camera to the show (thank you, Paul!). Especially for those that missed out on this great night.

Here’s the FULL show on YouTube. Turn it up and ENJOY!

This Sunday: BBQ @ 7″ winner’s location

http://blackbottleriot.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/IMG_33831.jpgWhen we released our 7″ last June, we inserted some golden vouchers in the 7″. First prize: a very special BBQ for you and 25 (!) friends at your location, including loads of good meat & homemade salads, a couple of bottles of Jack Daniel’s and – of course – a live set by Black Bottle Riot.

Well ladies & gentlemen, we have a #1 winner. Upcoming Sunday we’ll be heading down to Ijmuiden to make sure the Philipsen family and their friends have one of the best parties of their lives! We’re very much looking forward to this, as this is again an opportunity to THANK our fans. We care about all y’all, know that.

Video-launch-BBQ-matinee for invited

BBR organised a BBQ for some friends last Sunday. It was our way of thanking the folks that helped us over the years. Plus it was a nice way to present our video of ‘Bright Light City’ to some people we wanted to welcome in our team. Of course this matinee was drenched with gallons of Texas Pete BBQ Sauce, beer and whiskey. The headaches are silent witnesses.
