Amazon.ca is preselling Rosé. Get it here. Or wait to get it at your local, independent music store, which would make much more sense. :)

CALL ME (I’LL BE AROUND MEDLEY) DE BRAN VAN 3000
1er EXTRAIT DE L’ALBUM ROSÉ À PARAITRE LE 30 OCTOBRE
SUR LES ONDES RADIO DÈS LE 4 OCTOBRE!

CALL ME (I’LL BE AROUND MEDLEY)

3:58 min
Auteur, compositeur: Bran Van 3000

Montréal, le mercredi 3 octobre 2007 – Remstar Interaction et Les Productions Big Fat Truck sont fières d’annoncer que le premier titre de l’album Rosé : Call Me (I’ll be around medley) de Bran Van 3000 (BV 3000) sera disponible sur toutes les ondes radio à travers la province dès le jeudi 4 octobre à 8h00 via le service 45 tours.ca

Après plusieurs années passés loin des feux de la rampe et éloignés de la scène publique, voilà que BV 3000 s’apprête à prendre de nouveau d’assaut l’univers musical avec toujours ce même enthousiasme, esprit libertin et folle imagerie. Au cours des dernières années, Bran Van 3000, véritables bohèmes de l’ère moderne et artistes indépendants des plus créatifs, ont parcouru l’Amérique du Nord - de Los Angeles à Las Vegas, de Chicago à Boston en passant par New York et Montréal, à la recherche de rencontres, avec cette même soif de nouveautés et de désir de briser toutes les frontières.

C’est sous l’impulsion de la nouvelle boîte de productions montréalaise Big Fat Truck, que la famille BV 3000 s’est reformée autour de son leader, James Di Salvio. Ce dernier a comme d’habitude, invité de nombreux artistes à se joindre au clan pour faire la fête. En tête de ceux-là, se retrouve Sarah Johnston, membre de la première heure et co-réalisatrice de ce nouvel album.

Près de 10 ans après la sortie de leur premier album Glee (1998), objet mythique pour plusieurs, la formation culte Bran Van 3000 est enfin de retour! Produit par Big Fat Truck en collaboration l’étiquette Remstar Interaction et distribué partout au pays par Sélect, Rosé sera disponible partout au Canada dès le mardi 30 octobre Préparez-vous à un automne Rosé avec Bran Van 3000!

Le grand retour de Bran Van 3000 ! Le nouvel album, intitulé Rosé, qui passe d'un soul moderne et senti, qui mari les nouvelles textures sonores aux moods des années 60, au hip hop et techno est co-réalisé par James Di Salvio et Sara Johnston avec la collaboration de Fat Lip, Max a million, Swanza et autres. L'album a été écrit à Los Angeles et réalisé dans les studios de Depeche Mode et à Hollywood au Studio de Steve Vai.

Avec Bran Van 3000, l'automne sera « Rosé » !

Tournée canadienne fin 2007 début 2008

Béluga (http://www.belugarock.com) is a new rock band from the province of Québec. Among the collaborators on their first self-titled CD, there is one Jean Leclerc (formerly known as Jean Leloup) and one Stephen 'Liquid' Hawley. The album is not available for sale yet, but you can hear song samples on their website.

You can hear Stephen 'Liquid' Hawley's signing on Loin et près de toi, Subdirectio (Color blind) and Jean's guitar and voice (briefly) on Rocco le coq. You can hear these tracks on the official Béluga website, in the Discographie section.

According to Le Journal de Québec, a 30 seconds clip of Astounded was used by the Raelians in a promotional video on their website. Apparently, James Di Salvio smiled when he learned the fact, even if he don't want to be associated to them.

Éditorial Avenue, owners of the rights to the Bran Van songs, were less agreeable, saying that they'll ask for compensations, which they estimated to 1000$ for them and 1000$ for James. (Le Journal de Québec, 4 août 2004)

"I was bored and was trying out a new technique for photoshop, so I ended up making a logo for your BV3000 website. Later: Crucethus" The logo is available in the Files section, or you can download it directly.

"Hey great work here are more pics if you want, I kind of look like I saw a nasty gost on the one you put up. Cheers, thanks again! Stéphane" As a result, I've put up more pics of Stephane Moraille! ;) I've also added pictures of Stephen 'Liquid' Hawley and Nick Hynes thanks to TheWakeUpGirl.

Mp³ and I, along with some of our friends from Le Castel, met E-P Bergen Sunday afternoon!

He and James Di Salvio expect to do shows in Québec, probably in 3 months or so. They already have some cool stuff for a new album, but it's still too early to be sure. They don't have a label and are not preoccupied by that. There is sill no collaborators for the new album; this will all happen in due course!

In the meantime, Sara Johnston is working on a solo album and Jayne Hill moved to Boston. Thus they are most likely not the girls jamming at the Missy Bar! However, EP is sometimes spinning at the Missy on Wednesdays.

Regarding his solo album, Airport Lounge, he's still working on the project, producing the albums as orders come in! So if you buy one now, you may end up with a unique version! The album may get to be distributed via regular channels in the future though.

Jean Leloup recently showed him some of his new stuff, as EP is also working on the "Noir destin que le mien" movie. In fact, both of them were working hard on that beautiful Sunday, so they must REALY be committed to what they're doing!

Bran Van is back, let's celebrate!

With lots of BV3 love, sd and Mp³

"Bran Van 3000 is making the third album. No release dates to be announced yet, but it won't be that long. Some tracks might be pre released. James Di Salvio and E-P Bergen went back to the roots and are approaching it in a similar mental state they made Glee in." -- taken from http://www.epbergen.com/branvannews.htm, posted on April 21/04!

Yeahhhh!!!

Jam sessions are still scheduled at the Missy-Bar on May 14th, 21st and 28th!

Hip Hop jam sessions

Posted Tuesday, April 27th, 2004 20:16 by sd:

Lyrics were added for most of the songs, dates and pictures were added for the 1998 Horde tour. Feel free to submit any correction as this is a massive update and it's not everything that was checked. The discography has been updated steadily over the last weeks and is getting pretty impressive ;).

Posted Friday, April 23rd, 2004 8:45 by sd:

James Di Salvio was seen at the Jean Leloup's new album (Exit) launch party last Tuesday. Apparently he's working on an album of his own. He also said that he sometimes goes to the Missy Bar jam sessions, but that his projects keep him busy. The next jam sessions should feature a DJ! (Info: manuefun)

Posted Wednesday, April 14th, 2004 18:46 by sd:

There were jam sessions at the Missy bar on April 2nd and 9th. Stephen 'Liquid' Hawley, Nick Hynes (guitar) and "Sara" were there both times. We still need to confirm if the Sara who was there is indeed Sara Johnston. Jayne Hill may have participated on the 9th, but that too needs confirmation.

Posted Sunday, March 21st, 2004 12:53 by sd:

Another update about the jam sessions. It seems that bv3 begins to play when "the place is full", which should occur at 10pm! When asked if Sara Johnston was going to be there, they answered yes: "mmmmmoui la chanteuse sera là". The members who actually attend to the jam session varies from night to night. (Info: manuefun)

As you may have noticed on the image below, the three next sessions are now officially announced by the Missy-Bar!

Posted Thursday, March 18th, 2004 17:23 by sd:

Following yesterday's news, more jam sessions are scheduled at the Missy-Bar on April 2nd, 9th and 23rd. James may be there, but he did not attend last week's session. More info should be posted soon as manuefun is still investigating! (Info: manuefun)

Posted Wednesday, March 17th, 2004 12:02 by sd:

Apparently, the Bran Van boys have organized weekly jam sessions at Missy-Bar! (Info: viceversatile) Alain, from the Missy-Bar has confirmed that multiple jam sessions are planned !! (His email: "En effet, ils se sont produit vendredi 12 et devrait revenir régulièrement. Pour plus d'infos, appeller Bernard au xxx-xxxx. Alain") (Info: manuefun, who is still investigating!)

This is not exactly recent news, but it's still interesting!

"I [Kanyon] met James Di Salvio at the Peace One Day concert in London last night [on september 20th, 2003]. I chatted to him alot, he was soooo nice to myself and my friend. He Djed alongside another for about an hour til 3am, the event was brilliant. I had such a good time. Some news: BranVan3000 IS coming back, once he gets back from London they're doing some stuff and new things should be out in a few weeks. Stephane Moraille will be coming back aswell." (Info: Kanyon)

All right, here's the deal:

There is A LOT of info to add to the website, and obviously things will go faster if everybody can contribute!

Please add your contributions to this thread and we'll add them to the site. If you're too shy, just mail them to mp@lecastel.org, but it is WAYYYY better to discuss it here so everybody knows what's already been done .

If you'd like to submit other pictures or computer files, please send them to sd@lecastel.org or wait until the attachment feature is added to the board .

Here's a partial todo list:

http://branvan3000.lecastel.org/pictures.php
A lot of pictures need better captions.

http://branvan3000.lecastel.org/songs.php
If any member of bv3 talked about specific songs in interviews, it would be nice to add this info. It would be great to know who sings each part of the songs .

http://branvan3000.lecastel.org/people.php
For each member, we'd like to have some background info such as other projects, links to specific websites, what they're doing now, etc.

http://branvan3000.lecastel.org/concerts.php
We'd like to list all past concert dates, add pictures, setlists, everything really!

Of course, if you think of anything else, that would be great too!

Thanks !!
