Bumbershoot Bike Cops Vs. Rebel Clowns
posted by August 29 at 11:12 AMon
Bumbershoot has clowns on bikes and clowns in bands named after bikes.
When the members of Cyclecide Rodeo are riding a seven foot tall tandem bike or a lawn mower bike called the Suburban Intruder, they must hit the breaks, and hit them skillfully, or they will end up on their asses.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club almost hit the breaks and broke up before the release of their third album, Howl. But they didn’t.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Smug, pained, dark garage rock darlings: Peter Hayes, Robert Levon Been, and Nick Jago.
Cyclecide Bike Rodeo – Psychotic, beer drinking, dare devil clown mechanics.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Fender Twin Reverb Combo 1965 Reissue Guitar, Gibson ES-335 Electric Guitar, an Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer Overdrive, and a Dunlop TS-1 Tremolo Stereo Pan.
Cyclecide Bike Rodeo – The Bicycle Carousel, the Pedal-Powered Ferris Wheel, the Dizzy Toy, the Cyclofuge, and the Flight of the Bumblebee.

Seattle’s Cops recorded 10 songs in 3 days. Get Good or Stay Bad.
Tokyo Police Club recorded 7 songs in 3 days. A Lesson in Crime.
The Cops – They get there in a hurry. Songs are fast and relentless. This high-speed chase ends in volume.
Tokyo Police Club – Sixteen minutes, that’s how long their album is. They’re on the scene quickly, hammering bass lines with guitars for sirens. This high-speed chase could end up in their home town of Ontario, Canada.
The Cops - Saturday, 12:45 PM - 1:45, Broad St.
Tokyo Police Club - Monday, 5:45 pm - 6:45, Broad St.
