February 12th 1970 saw BBC TV’s ‘Top Of The Pops’ first broadcast of the classic performance of ‘Instant Karma’ by John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band with – from left to right – John Lennon [vocals & piano], Yoko Ono [knitting & Kotex eyewear], the Beatles’ road manager Mal Evans [tambourine], BP Fallon [bass guitar & hat], the Apple Records official House Hippy Richard DiLello [camera], Klaus Voorman [bass guitar] and Alan White [drums].

‘Instant Karma’ produced by Phil Spector.

"Instant Karma's gonna get you..."

The following week John Lennon was to be heard being interviewed on BBC radio by Emperor Rosko and telling his host “BP Fallon playing the bass guitar, that’s concept art”.

“I can’t play bass” says BP today, laughing, “but it’s better than whacking a tambourine into John’s left ear and almost putting him off his singing”. Which – as our next two pictures show – is what BP did the previous week on the Top Of The Pops of February 5th 1970…

Instant Karma: John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band TOTP Feb 5th 1970

Poets Of Rhythm, Art From The Heart, People For Peace:
Yoko & John with Peter Fallon and Eamon Carr’s Tara Telephone
‘Capella’ publication, the very edition – ‘Capella 3′ – that contained the drawing that John Lennon had done for ‘Capella’ the previous year at his and Yoko’s Amsterdam Bed-In.
‘Capella 3′ cover artwork by Jim Fitzpatrick.
Yoko & John photographed 1970 by Richard DiLello.
Photograph printed 1970 by Pete Saunders for Peter Fallon.

“And we all shine on…”

God Bless Alexander McQueen

Posted by BP Fallon on Thursday Feb 11, 2010 Under Rock'n'Roll

Alexander McQueen
March 17th 1969 – February 11th 2010
40 years young…
RIP

Kate Moss for Alexander McQueen.

Holographic, angelical, beautifully mesmerising video of Kate Moss at an Alexander McQueen fashion show.

Such grace, such elegance, such poise, such flow. Such mystery and magic and strange emotion. Another world, another planet.

Beyond stunning.

Out of our minds and our hearts and our soul – and into the world for all time, for ever.

Thank you Alexander McQueen – genius and jean/gene genie too and never gone. God Bless you x

$149.99? Silly money for rare vinyl honey

Posted by BP Fallon on Thursday Feb 11, 2010 Under BP Fallon

eBay has revealed this little bargain:

BP Fallon’s ‘Fame #9′ rare white, yellow and black tricolour vinyl 7″ 45 – only 150 of these records were pressed at United Record Pressing in Nashville with 100 sold in person at the Third Man Records store in Nashville at $5 each and 50 of these tricolour singles inserted randomly into world-wide mail-orders…

This tricolour ‘Fame #9′ 7″ baby is only $149.99 plus shipping!
Cheap at half the price.

We’re very happy with our black vinyl one – $5 plus shipping

Or the three fab tracks on iTunes this very second for 2.97

We’re happy anyway. We wish you the same. Happy everything.
