Gavin Friday in Soho in New York 1996 by BP Fallon

Ireland’s Electric Picnic Music Festival has just announced the pairing of two rock’n'roll legends on the festival’s opening day in MindField Friday Aug 31st at 5pm:

Gavin Friday & BP Fallon – Fear & Loathing & Loving At Electric Picnic

“You can call it ‘Two Rock’n'Roll Tarts Have A Chinwag’ if you want’” says BP Fallon who will be in surreal conversation with Gavin Friday.

Eccentric left-field one-offs, Friday and Fallon have much in common – a love of Marc Bolan and Ghandi and an appreciation of Quentin Crisp, a healthy distain for the mainstream and an exploration of the impossible.

This will not simply be another interview in a tent – think Gavin in full flow at Mr Pussy’s and BP Fallon interviewed by Jack White – ie anything can happen – and will.

Kick off your Electric Picnic with some MindField mind warp!
