BP Fallon being interviewed about David Bowie on UTV News by Paul Colgan

Last Monday seems like a year ago now, a dream. It still feels like a dream. David Bowie is dead.

On Monday, a shocked and saddened BP Fallon spoke to Neil Delamere on Today FM, to Joe Duffy on RTE Radio 1’s ‘Liveline’ and was interviewed on UTV television news. BP then joined Paul McLoone in the Today FM studio for Paul’s David Bowie tribute show.

RIP It Up With Lou Reed

Posted by admin on Monday Oct 28, 2013 Under Art, Brown Bread x, Magic, Rock'n'Roll, Spoken Word, Timeless


Lou Reed – Rock And Roll Heart – amazing documentary 1998 (75 mins)

Rock And Roll Heart traces Lou Reed’s career from before the formation of the Velvet Underground to rock icon status to his more recent artistic endeavors. Includes rare and vintage footage plus interviews with David Bowie, John Cale, Maureen Tucker, Patti Smith, Thurston Moore, David Byrne, Jim Carroll, Dave Stewart and Philip Glass – and even Holly Woodlawn and ‘Little’ Joe Dallesandro, the drag queen and the street hustler immortalized by Reed in ‘Walk on the Wild Side’. A superb documentary – and the only one – about this hugely influential and uncompromising American artist. Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders for American Masters.

God bless you, Lou. And Nico and Sterling Morrison and Andy Warhol, with love & gratitude x

Update #2 for Dublin Dec 20th – more Maser art magic

Posted by admin on Saturday Dec 17, 2011 Under Art, Magic, Music, Rock'n'Roll


Tickets here

Artist Of The Always Now, the magnificent Maser, has created a glorious poster for the gig “for my buddy BP Fallon”. Thank you brother.

Maser painted the stunning portrait of BP Fallon that adorns the outside wall of The Button Factory in Curve Street in Temple Bar in Dublin.


BP Fallon by Maser by Johnny Moy

In yesterday’s Star, Shilpa Ganatra asked our Mr Fallon “How does it feel to be the subject of graffiti artist Maser’s giant mural on Curved Street?”

Said BP “It’s probably the greatest honour I’ve ever received. I work outside of the mainstream and it seems fitting that a street artist – however renowned and respected Maser is, and he is – should give me my medal. I thank Maser and also Dublin Contemporary 2011, of which the portrait is a part. I must confess that maybe I’ve been high before – but never in a thirty foot high portrait on the side of a wall. It’s humbling”.


Work in progress – BP Fallon by Maser by Johnny Moy too
