Watch: BP Fallon interviewed by Italian Vogue (5.13)
We recommend watching in HD

Subjects discussed: BP Fallon & His Bandits and why maybe you shouldn’t listen to them, his Wang Dang Doodle radio show, the link between rock’n'roll and fashion – and what rock’n'roll is. All this wrapped up in BP’s joyful and zestful attitude to life and living, in a most vibrant interview.

Interview by Stefania Pia
Directed by Thommasco Cardile
Editing by Carlo Crocchiolo
Filmed in the Lower East Side, New York City
Excerpts from ‘I Believe In Elvis Presley’ by BP Fallon
directed by Shimmy Marcus

And because of the very cool cinematography by Thommasco Cardile…
some screengrabs…

“Focus on BP Fallon – a peak into the rock’n'roll poet’s head”
