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.

“The meditative, countrified ‘Increasingly Often’ conjures a moment when vocals and music mesh perfectly, delivering rock’n'roll of the highest calibre. A number that would make many of Fallon’s illustrious pals proud, it seals the deal”
- Craig Fitzpatrick in the review of ‘Still Legal’, Hot Press

INCREASINGLY OFTEN
Lyrics – BP Fallon
Music – BP Fallon/Aaron Lee Tasjan/Nigel Harrison/Clem Burke
(ASCAP/IMRO)

Increasingly often I’m thinking it’s the last time
’Cause one day it will be
Each and every moment is a special one
Not just some of them
Every moment is nearer to the end
Not in a bad way
Not in a sad way
It’s just that time does not go on forever

Increasingly often I’m thinking how I love you
And I always did do
Each and every moment is a special one
Not just some of them
Every moment is nearer to the end
Not in a bad way
Not in a sad way
It’s just that time does not go on forever

Bless us who are still alive
And bless us who are still in heaven
It’s not that I’m a Holy Joe
I’m simply very grateful you are here

Increasingly often I’m thinking how I’ll miss you
And I always will do
Each and every moment was a special one
Not just some of them
Every moment is nearer to the end
Not in a bad way
Yes in a sad way
It’s just that time does not go on forever

Bless us who are still alive
And bless us who are still in heaven
It’s not that I’m a Holy Joe
I’m simply very grateful you are here

BP Fallon & The Bandits – The War To Fight For Love (official video)

“A mantric poetic song-spiel with ’70s NYC blood ties, not least because The Bandits feature Blondie’s classic rhythm section”
- Uncut Magazine on ‘The War To Fight For Love’ which is also available on the free CD with the August edition of Uncut (The Band on the cover)

Filmed by DeadWeatherDenver
Edited by Chase Bradburn

Aaron Goes Cosmic

"We're all in this together..."
“Nobody’s alone/We’re all in this together…”
The War To Fight For Love video freezeframes

THE WAR TO FIGHT FOR LOVE
Lyrics – BP Fallon
Music – BP Fallon/Aaron Lee Tasjan/Nigel Harrison/Clem Burke
(ASCAP/IMRO)

Heart of magic
A mind of magnificence
We’re on the cusp of a great significance
Dreams are our wishes, the loaves and the fishes
It all comes together, more than serendipitous

Nobody’s alone
We’re all in this together
There’s common ground among us
You and your angel’s feathers

Heaven’s made for saints, the world is made for sinners
This life heaven ain’t ‘cept everyone’s a winner
Roll up roll up roll up
Roll up roll up roll up
The light, the light, the light, I see the light
The war to fight for love
Alright, alright, alright, I feel alright
The war to fight for love
The light, the light, the light, I see the light
The war to fight for love
Alright, alright, alright, I feel alright
The war to fight for love

(wild Aaron guitar solo)

You’re my non-druggie Edie Sedgwick
Sparkling through the corridors of power
Doubting Thomas showed you a dagger
You smiled, gave him a flower

You think it’s crazy, I don’t care, I’m as fucked up as anyone else
You think it’s pipedreams, I don’t care, I’ve as much luck as anyone else

The light, the light, the light, I see the light
The war to fight for love
Alright, alright, alright, I feel alright
The war to fight for love
The light, the light, the light, I see the light
The war to fight for love
Alright, alright, alright, I feel alright
The war to fight for love

(Ian McLagan makes it Sunday on his Hammond organ)

Roll up roll up roll up
Roll up roll up roll up
Roll up roll up roll up
Roll up roll up roll up
The war to fight for love

Roll up roll up roll up
The war to fight for love

(Aaron the guitar man)

Let not our dreams be crushed by apparent reality
Let us harvest our due duality
Yes
