Group therapy: ‘Wild Thing’ in Blackpool by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, feral and filthy and fun and regal and still legal… And now:

“Gonna leave this town, yeah
Gotta leave this town
Gonna make a whole lotta money
Gonna be big, yeah…”

The whole of this clip is mesmerising, from Jimi on twelve-string acoustic to Jimi in the limo overloading on Jazz Woodbine with Jeanette Jacobs and another girl. From the superb film ‘Jimi Hendrix’ by Joe Boyd.

God Bless you, Jimi. And Noel and Mitch too. And thank you for the magic x

Hi-Fi-Sci: BP Fallon & Gavin Friday live

Posted by admin on Friday Sep 17, 2010 Under BP Fallon, Magic, Music, Rock'n'Roll

The shadow of your simile – BP Fallon performs @ Biorhythm Live: Emotion at Science Gallery Trinity College Dublin. Photography by lib-lab

The view from the tabloids:
“Bono’s hood buds from waaay way back: Gavo Friday, Guggo and BP Fallo – were all there at the Science Gallery with BP and Friday performing something no doubt edgy, arty and futurey… You know, after BP Fallon kicks the bucket we reckon his body should become a permanent exhibition at the Science Gallery. Shame he’s an immortal”
– more from ShowBiz Ireland in Gav, Gugg & BP Do Trinners Baby…

The view from the cheap seats – Kate Ellis & Gavin Friday perform while BP Fallon gazes in wonderment @ Biorhythm Live: Emotion at Science Gallery TCD. Photography by lib-lab

The view from the intelligentsia (Gavin Friday’s site, actually):
“… although local vibe master BP Fallon brought it back to heart and bones with a spoken word performance of his recent single ‘I Believe in Elvis’ where in no uncertain terms he challenged the very notion of Fame”
– more by Pat Lynch in Review – Biorhythm Live: Emotion

“No-one had the balls to say ‘Elvis, I love you. You’re a bit fat. Have an apple'”. BP Fallon gets emotional @ Biorhythm Live: Emotion. Photography by lib-lab

Much thanks to Michael John Gorman, Karen Walshe, Lynn Scarf, Lea O’Flannagain, Derek Williams and all at Science Gallery plus of course the lauded Biorhythm Live host Gerry Godley.

Meanwhile I’m still thinking… 🙂

Photography: Gavin Friday Goes Ghost Rider by BP Fallon
