GoAnimate.com – Pixie and BP at Electric Picnic by Pixie Delamere

And now it’s revealed – BP Fallon & Pixie at Electric Picnic 2011.

As well as doing two amazing shows backed by The Hot Sprockets – see below – and talking on a panel with Bob Geldof and Annie Tierney of Tieranniesaur moderated by David McWilliams and doing a recitation in the Science Tent… our man managed to ride the ferris wheel with Pixie and somehow the two heroes of our yarn ended up in outer space
(as one does).

Up in space, the pair hear someone singing BP’s record ‘I Believe In Elvis Presley’ (as one does). Pixie created her GoAnimate to celebrate… well, everything, really…

***Christmas Show Of The Year!***
BP FALLON & The HOT SPROCKETS live & vibey rock’n'roll
Dublin Workman’s Club Tues Dec 20th 8pm
€12 Ticketmaster

eircom in ‘Death Disco logo’ shock?

Posted by admin on Wednesday Nov 23, 2011 Under BP Fallon, Death Disco, Magic, Music, Rock'n'Roll

So along come eircom with their new advertising posters. Not exactly a benign scene being depicted – an unhappy girl being manhandled out of somewhere that’s supposed to be rockin’ by two grim-faced don’t-fuck-with-me security guards.


The eircom ad. Photography by Peter Murnaghan

What caught our eye was how eircom – without a bye-your-leave or a nod in this direction – have ‘adapted’ our Death Disco skull-and-headphones logo on the girl’s t shirt. Do we have a patent on all skulls and headphones? No. But look at the ad… eircom have basically drawn a pair of shades over their version of our DD logo.


BP Fallon and Robert Plant at the the benefit concert for Arthur Lee, bless him, at The Beacon Theatre NYC June 24th 2006. Robert sang. BP DJed – in non-eircom Death Disco t shirt. Photography by Bob Gruen.

It’s flattering to have one’s work – one’s art, one’s images, one’s logos – recognised by the mainstream.

It’s disconcerting how this acceptance of something that was once underground and pure and based around music and having a good time is now warped magnetic eye candy for a corporation flogging telephones by any means possible.

Then again… who are we to stand in the way of pop culture influences?

Or… should we sue ‘em?

Life’s a gas.
