Playhouse Presents: Timeless starring Cara Delevingne (trailer)

Cara Delevingne – the coolest young model on the planet, sometime added vocals with BP Fallon & The Bandits and general all-round briliant viber – makes her UK TV acting debut tonight in Timeless, which follows the moving story of Chloe (played by Cara) and her great-grandmother Alice (played by Sylvia Syms).

And! One of our fave early rock’n’roll films and much loved too by early Rolling Stones enfant terrible manager Andrew Loog Oldham – set in Soho’s rock’n’roll dives and strip clubs – with Sylvia Syms playing Maise, the stripper girlfriend of Johnny Jackson (Laurence Harvey), manager of Bongo Herbert (an untamed Cliff Richard):

We are delighted to announce BP Fallon’s shows at SXSW in Austin, on which he’ll be backed by his long-term Texas collaboraters The Ghost Wolves – the mythical Carley Ghost on guitar and Jonny Ghost on drums.

Says Jonny of BP, “He’s a rock’n’roll sage. This is special for us, a musical treat”.

And! SXSW Lou Reed Tribute Concert

Additionally, BP will perform at the SXSW Lou Reed Tribute Concert at the Paramount Theater in Austin alongside Sean Lennon, Alejandro Escovedo & strings, Black Lips, Lucinda Williams, Lisa Marie Presley, Suzanne Vega, Wayne Kramer from The MC5, Richard Barone – even Andy Warhol star and Rolling Stones ‘Sticky Finger’ cover model Joe Dallesandro.

The house band is incredible and its core members will be familiar to fans of BP Fallon & The Bandits – none other than Blondie/Bandits drummer Clem Burke, guitarist Lenny Kaye from The Patti Smith Group who’s been a Bandit at live gigs in New York, Austin and Ireland’s Electric Picnic Festival and Tony Shanahan on bass from Patti Smith Group with Ivan Julian on guitar, Matt Fish on cello, Susan Voelz on violin.

This will be an amazing night.
