The writers of the already-classic ‘I Believe In Elvis Presley’ – BP Fallon and Aaron Lee Tasjan – have a warble and a twang, up-all-night-here-comes-the-daylight vibe, East Village New York City 2010. Up close and personal. From ‘The Mushroom Tapes’.

BP Fallon & Aaron Lee Tasjan by Riny

Another hot new sizzler from The Poet Of Rock’n’Roll and his celebrated combo – written by Fallon/Tasjan in New York and filmed in Holland by Donal Scannell – Cold Chills

“What’s the point if you don’t have a joint?
What’s the fun if you don’t have a gun..?
Going down to the station
My baby fucked with me
I’m going to kill myself
Cold chills, cold chills…”

BP Fallon & Nigel Harrison & Mark Stepro by Ingmar Griffoen

BP Fallon & His Band play at the Crossing Border festival in Holland and Belgium this weekend Fri/Sat/Sun Nov 19/20/21.

Joining Mr Fallon and his combo for the two-country festival – which takes place in The Hague in Holland and Antwerp in Belgium – are Villagers, The National, Spoon etc etc.

The band for this European adventure are BP Fallon (vox), Aaron Lee Tasjan (guitar), Nigel Harrison (bass) and Mark Stepro (drums). Mark is new to the fold and is best known for his work with Evan Dando/The Lemonheads, while scorching guitar-slinger Aaron Lee Tasjan has played with The New York Dolls and Nigel Harrison was in Blondie – and with Debbie Harry wrote many of the Blondie hits including ‘One Way Or Another’ and ‘Union City Blue’.

Speaking from the band’s rehearsal space in New York, BP Fallon says ”Is it a cliché to say I’m over the moon? I’m so fucking excited about this jaunt with the chaps to Crossing Border – the first time we’ll have played outside of America. Fuck yeah!”

Crossing Border is the biggest music-and-spoken word festival in the world – it’s been going for eighteen years – and everyone from Allen Ginsberg and Lou Reed to Patti Smith and Salman Rushdie to, uh, Coldplay have appeared at this prestigious event.
