LISTEN // New Black Mountain Single/Origin Song “Black Mountain (demo)”

This morning Stereogum premiered the second single released for the 10th Anniversary Edition of Black Mountain. The song “Black Mountain (demo)” wasn’t on the original album, but will be on the deluxe reissue.

Here’s what bandleader Stephen McBean said about the song:

Jerk With A Bomb was playing a show at Pat’s Pub in Vancouver. It must’ve been 2003. The night before I had a dream that if we were called Black Mountain we would become an unstoppable rock ‘n’ roll force. In the morning, a banner was created on a old sheet with a few jiffy markers and our opening theme song was composed. I believe we played it live a few more times enhanced with synchronized dance, then left it to rest for 10 odd years on a mini disc in a dusty box, but that evening through dream, banner and song Black Mountain was born.

The 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition is a double-LP including 8 bonus tracks on limited edition colored vinyl, using foil-print on the first pressing of the litho-wrap gatefold packaging. The records themselves are limited-edition color matched grey double vinyl, as well as standard black vinyl and double disc CD, which are also available with limited edition foil-printing. It includes the original classic album paired with the Druganaut 12″ plus 4 previously unreleased tracks.




THE RUMORS ARE TRUE. Jagjaguwar and Atlas have teamed up to bring Bloomington, IN and surrounding tri-state the meanest, coolest, most souped up derby car to ever hit the dusty arena. We’ll head out to the Monroe County Fair this Friday and Saturday for the demolition derby. Please join us! Not in Bloomington?
