BP Fallon & The Bandits – Fame #9 at SXSW 2012 filmed by The Black Shades

Writes the singer with The Black Shades, Aaron Lee Clark: “I had the pleasure of seeing a performance from BP Fallon & The Bandits – Hector Munoz (Alejandro Escovedo), Nigel Harrison (Blondie), Scott Asheton (The Stooges) and Aaron Lee Tasjan (Himself). It was the best performance I have seen all year. BP captivates an audience like no one I have ever seen. This guy is the real deal and gives me even more reason to have my ears to pass through movement of the band and latch onto lyrics”.

“What is the most valuable thing in the world?”

Roar power!

We are over the fucking moon – Scott Asheton the drummer with The Stooges will play with BP Fallon & The Bandits at their show tonight in Austin, Texas.

Says BP Fallon: “I got this phone call from Florida and it was Scott Asheton. He’d been watching the YouTube video of myself and The Bandits playing Van And Gloria in Holland and said he was up for having a play with us. I’m very very honoured, all the band are. Two amazing drummers – it’ll be wild!”

Iggy and Scott Asheton are the only surviving members of the original Stooges – Dave Alexander died in 1975 and Scott’s brother Ron died in 2009.

Here’s Scott drumming with The Stooges at their induction to The Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame in 2010:

And! Breaking news!

Hector Muñoz by Darlene Campbell

We are proud and delighted to announce that the extraordinary Hector Muñoz will play drums in BP Fallon & The Bandits at SXSW. Hector was the driving backbeat behind Alejandro Escovedo for many many years and as well as being recognised as a brilliant drummer is a good friend of BP and the band.

Reveals regular Bandits drummer Clem Burke “I can’t do SXSW because of touring commitments so BP rang me up and said ‘What about if I ask Hector if he’s up for the drumming?’ I said ‘Yes, if you can get him, a great drummer, a very nice man, perfect for The Bandits music, he rocks and he’s powerful’. So BP rang Hector and it’s a fabulous choice”.

Also joining BP & The Bandits at SXSW is the outstanding violin and mandolin virtuoso Brendon Anthony. “Think John Cale in The Velvet Underground but even more out there” says BP enigmatically.
