“I’ve always wanted Aggy to DJ at Death Disco” says BP, “and this party is the climax of Toronto Fashion Week so it’s perfect”

Agyness is currently receiving rave reviews for her acting debut in the McDermott and McGough movie ‘Mean To Me’ –  the thirteen-minute film noir set in 1930s Manhattan in which she plays opposite ‘Law & Order’ actor Linus Roache – with Vogue UK noting “Film critics laud Agyness Deyn’s acting debut as ‘flawless’”.

Screen grab: Agyness Deyn in ‘Mean To Me’. See an excerpt here

In Japan in collaboration with Barneys she has just launched her green-conscious capsule collection as part of the ‘Go Green’ campaign.

Agyness Deyn is the brightest light in modelling since Kate Moss kicked in twenty years ago and she’s now expanded into acting and designing. Music? She’s always DJed, at little parties and with pals. She’s a music girl. And during the recent London Fashion Week ‘Fashion For Haiti’ charity fundraiser, Aggy endeared  herself to the world even more when she famously fell on the runway from her high high heels not once but twice and just laughed the whole thing off with elegance and with grace and the cutest of curtsies. Dig ‘The Falls And Rise Of Agyness Deyn’!

BP Fallon and his band are Special Guests at the Rajiworld-presented Victoria Williams Sweet Relief benefit at Jovita’s, 1619 First Street, Austin, TX. They take the stage at 6.30pm, after Kathy Valentine of The Go-Go’s and the Michael Des Barres truth revue.

By Jennifer Brandon:

Now BP Fallon. Where do I even begin? A small, wee Irishman with shining skin, a mischievous smile, armed with a notebook of intense lyrical poems on the direction of pop culture and commentary on what’s happened to rock’n'roll.

Flanked by Blondie’s rhythm section (Clem Burke on drums and Nigel Harrison on bass) and lead guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan (who has played with The New York Dolls), BP set out to jostle the minds of his audience.

Go to his site to listen to the Jack White-produced ‘I Believe in Elvis Presley’. It doesn’t demonstrate the insanity of seeing the guy live though. He really was provocative and old school. Another pleasant surprise and super fun.

Nick Kent, Bowie, Zeppelin & “I’m The New Debbie Harry”

Posted by BP Fallon on Monday Mar 15, 2010 Under BP Fallon, Rock'n'Roll

By Olaf Tyaransen

The Evening Herald


Back in the daze before OZone became a respected, feared and smart-arsed Herald columnist, my main gig was as a respected, feared and smart-arsed rock journalist. So it was with much interest that I picked up veteran NME scribe Nick Kent’s just published memoir of the 1970s, Apathy for the Devil (the title coming from a sneered comment by Bob Dylan when asked for his opinion on the Rolling Stones’ mid-70s career).

I’ve never met Kent, but I’ve always liked his writing. Legendary Irish rock guru BP Fallon, who first introduced him to Bowie and Led Zeppelin, is mentioned several times (“a peculiar but not charmless little man who looked like a glam-rock leprechaun and spoke like an effete Irish hobbit”).

I give Beep a call to let him know he’s name-checked in the book. “I always liked Nick,” he tells me. “He was a real leftfield lunatic. I haven’t seen him in many full moons, though. I’m very pleased that he’s able to write books because at one point it seemed he couldn’t write his own name.”

Having recently released his debut single Fame #9 produced by Jack White, Beep tells me that his new band will be making their live world debut in Austin, Texas, on St. Patrick’s Day at the SXSW music festival. It’s quite some crew – his lead guitarist is Aaron Lee Tasjan who has played with the New York Dolls and the rhythm section is comprised of Blondie’s Clem Burke and Nigel Harrison.

“I’m the new Debbie Harry,” Beep laughs.

Size matters: BP Fallon goes 8″

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

Jack White is having Texas-sized 45s of all the singles released on his Third Man Records label pressed up to be exclusively on sale at the Third Man Record’s pop-up shop at SXSW in Austin.

Thus BP Fallon’s ‘Fame #9′ 7″ 45 will now also be a proud 8″ of circular black vinyl.

Third Man Records LPs will be available as Texas-sized 13″ platters.

Says BP: “It’s all beyond amazing. I mean, to be on the same label as Wanda Jackson and Karen Elson, apart from all the other benign boogaloo…”

Will The Circle Be Unbroken? Yes

Robert Plant & BP Fallon & evidence, Abbey Road recording studios London Feb 25 2010

Robert Plant was singing at Abbey Road studios in London in aid of Cancer Research, the charity driven by Bob Harris who once had cancer. It was an amazing evening. Over £200,000 was raised.

Full review here of an extraordinary night from the Led Zeppelin magazine ‘Tight But Loose’ by the editor Dave Lewis

Robert Plant, after singing with a 76-voice choir – singing the Scott Walker opus ‘Farmer In The City’ and then ‘I Bid You Goodnight’ from The Incredible String Band’s ‘A Very Cellular Song’ with Nigel Eaton on the hurdy gurdy, all magnicent stuff, Robert singing so fucking soulful – after that Robert says to BP “There’s this book someone left for me to sign. There’s a picture of us back then. We must get our picture taken with it”. So they do.

Evidence: BP Fallon & Robert Plant & Vanessa Gilbert meet the snake & the snake man, the balcony of The Continental Hyatt House, Sunset Strip, West Hollywood May 1973. Photograph from ‘Led Zeppelin – The illustrated Biography’ by Gareth Thomas.
