    Saw a documentary once called Dig! about these guys, and their friends and competitors the Dandy Warhols, it is some crazy sh**t

    I saw them a couple of times. A good band that threatened to be great, but were usually too busy trying to break each others' faces... onstage and off. At some point, you only went to a BJM show to see how many songs they'd play before the fight broke out.

    The dig documentary is really good. it shows quite a bit the diffence in the state of mind between the dandy warhols and BJM.

    I always go out to see them, hell or high water. Never saw any fights.

    Saw them for the first time in 2002 when Joel and Jeff Davies were out of the band. What an experience. I will never forget it. I have seen them about 10 times since then. They were a force of nature for a while.

    I’ve always wondered if Antoine would allow a Telecaster to be played in that band..I have some doubts, especially if it was a custom color :eek:;).

    Great band. I fade off once in a while with them and Afghan Whigs and several other stellar groups from the era.
