Specter at the Feast

Specter at the Feast is the seventh studio album by American rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, released on March 18, 2013 in Europe and March 19, 2013 in the US. It was released under the band's own record label, Abstract Dragon, through Vagrant Records. Unlike Beat The Devil's Tattoo, the album wasn't produced by Michael Been, who died after he suffered a heart attack mid-tour in 2010 while the band was playing at Pukkelpop. As a result, Specter at the Feast was a way for the band to mourn their loss and rid the pain, as he was the father of bassist Robert Levon Been, but also their live sound technician and a mentor to all the members.

Hollister, California

HollisterCity of HollisterHollister Independence Motorcycle Rally
The riot at the original 1947 event was the basis for the 1953 film The Wild One. The rally was revived in 1997 as the Hollister Independence Rally. In 2005, the Hollister City Council discontinued their contract with the event organizers, the Hollister Independence Rally Committee, due to financial and public safety concerns. The event was canceled in 2006 due to lack of funding for security, but returned in 2007 and 2008. The format of the rally in 2007 differed markedly from previous rallies, with vendors on San Benito Street instead of motorcycles. The bikes were forced to park on side streets and a strict downtown curfew was imposed, with the entire area being locked up at 9:00 pm.

A limited edition package with a clear vinyl edition of the album, a black BRMC-branded Hohner harmonica, and a 'Black Cassette EP' was released in late April 2018. The EP contained three new unreleased songs and an extended version of the album's opener, "DFF". Wrong Creatures received generally favorable reviews from music critics.

Reaction video

reactingReactionReaction (reaction videos)
The first reaction videos for the gross-out "2 Girls 1 Cup" allowed people, according to Anderson, to "experience its dangerous thrill without having to encounter it directly—like Perseus looking at Medusa in the reflection of his shield". But much like the later videos featuring reactions to items of popular culture, Anderson wrote, such videos provide the appeal of experiencing, "at a time of increasing cultural difference, the comforting universality of human nature" in showing people of all backgrounds reacting similarly to a shared cultural experience.

This story made up the basis of the plot of the 1953 film The Wild One, starring Marlon Brando. However, it bears little resemblance to the actual events of the Hollister riot. The movie only worked to further bring the riot into public light and portray motorcyclists as misfits and outlaws.

A Night Out in London

In the common room, Jay shows his friends 2 Girls 1 Cup and another porn video on his new laptop; as a result, they are branded "saddos" by a group of girls sat near them. Will subsequently decides they all need to clean up their act and garner popularity, suggesting they go clubbing in London as a first attempt to do so. Whilst Jay and Neil both like the idea, with Jay falsely claiming that he went to a nightclub last week and had sex with a girl in the Tower of London, Simon declines to join due to the driving distance, perils of London during late hours, as well as the low chance of them being allowed into any nightclubs.
