BP Fallon Upside Down

Posted by admin on Tuesday Feb 15, 2011 Under BP Fallon, Magic, Music, Rock'n'Roll


‘Upside Down’: the trailer

Over 25 years after Creations’s first records, ‘Upside Down’ follows the story from the days of The Jesus And Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Primal Scream and Teenage Fanclub to the Boo Radleys, Super Furry Animals and – of course – Oasis among many, many more.

The label’s founder Alan McGee talks candidly of the trail which led from humble beginnings in Glasgow to, via drink and drug dependency, being wined and dined at No. 10 Downing Street by British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Produced & directed by Danny O’Connor.

The cast: Alan McGee, Noel Gallagher, Bobby Gillespie, Jim Reid, Mark Gardener, Norman Blake plus BP Fallon as ‘The Rock’n'Roll Sage’.

Giles Anderton writes in The Guardian: “There’s one great stroke of genius to Upside Down, Danny O’Connor’s chronicle of the birth, glory years and demise of mouthy mogul Alan McGee’s iconic record label. It’s the lack of a voiceover: O’Connor eschews traditional narration in favour of nuggets of rock’n'roll wisdom, spoken by ageing Irish DJ, music guru and McGee’s Death Disco co-conspirator BP Fallon (“purple-browed Beep” in T.Rex’s Telegram Sam).

“Fallon is shot in monochrome and beamed onto a grainy 50s TV set – a move that ensures the film stays in tune with the vibe of the bands Creation championed: amongst others Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine, The Pastels, The Jazz Butcher, Felt, Ride, Super Furry Animals, and most lucratively, Oasis”.
