Brian Jonestown Massacre hit the UK

Brian Jonestown Massacre

Story by Jack Foley

NAMED in tribute to the legendary Rolling Stones guitarist and his influence in introducing Eastern culture into the world of Western rock and roll, The Brian Jonestown Massacre have made some of the most exciting underground music in America since the Sixties.

Formed in 1990 in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, The Brian Jonestown Massacre is very much an amalgamation of that city’s past and present musical forces.

Some 40 different members have passed through the group’s ranks since it’s inception, but the heart of the BJM is the ragged determinism of Anton Newcombe — producer, songwriter, guitarist, singer and the group’s primary creative force.

Having now reached legendary status due to their part in the classic Dig! film, the band return to the UK in May for the following dates:

Sun 14 – Birmingham UK Bar Academy
Mon 15 – Dublin IRE Vicar Street
Tue 16 – Belfast N.IRE Mandela Hall
Thu 18 – Liverpool UK Bar Fly
Fri 19 – All Tomorrow Parties
Sun 21 – Nottingham Rescue Rooms
Tue 23 – Glasgow ABC 2
Wed 24 – Leeds Cockpit
Thu 25 – Sheffield Leadmill
Fri 26 – Manchester Academy 3
Sun 28 – Stoke On Trent Sugarmill
Mon 29 – Oxford Zodiac
