Black Market Peace

About Black Market Peace: Formed in early spring 2008, the combined musical performance and writing strengths of four of St. Louis’ top rock musicians culminated in a truly unique outfit, Black Market Peace. The name was derived from the waning, shadowy Bush era’s lust for war and internecine offenses against civil liberties such as wire tapping and general surveillance on U.S. citizens. The name is a subterranean war cry from the liberal and independent underground for a return to peaceful, sane, and intelligent governance and an end to societal apathy and the brain-dead youth music culture.

With a foundation of early punk being the only agreed upon factor in the band’s sound, a loose framework grew organically that allowed each member’s influences - both past and present - to permeate each song. No road map, only inner desires and a limitless spectrum from The Who, to Talking Heads, to Mahavishnu Orchestra, to The Clash, to Radio Head and Jane’s Addiction. Rich soundscapes within a coined “New Mod” sound as well as deeper, interpretive lyrics broadcasting the largely buried emotion and spiritual plight of urbanized “rational, solar man.”

The result is a sound that deeply connects with many by the very virtue of its diversity, honest, heartfelt messages and a return to emotional and thoughtful musical performance. The full Black Market Peace record will be completed in November, 2009.
