WARNING – this video may offend


Jim Jeffries on gun ownership – the Australian comedian plays to a crowd of Americans in Boston

For all my American pro-gun friends out there – and everyone else, really – here’s a perceptive perspective that had me laughing really hard!

Says Jim Jeffries in this video: “You have guns because you like guns! That’s why you go to gun conventions; that’s why you read gun magazines! None of you give a shit about home security. None of you go to home security conventions. None of you read Padlock Monthly. None of you have a Facebook picture of you behind a secure door…

“By the way. Most people who are breaking into your house just want your fucking TV! You think that people are coming to murder your family? How many fucking enemies do you have?”

Says President Obama: “At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this kind of mass violence doesn’t happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency”.

Sadly fiercely topical with the horrors in Charleston, North Charleston, Ferguson and more, in the video below New Yorker BP Fallon & Texas duo The Ghost Wolves unite for one of the most powerful songs around. “This gun madness never ceases to amaze me/Crazy crazy…”


BP Fallon & The Ghost Wolves ~ ‘I’m Still Legal’

I’M STILL LEGAL

I’m still legal
I’m over 21
To have a drink in ATX
Or go and buy a gun

I’m still legal
Not over having fun
To have a joint in Colorado
Or go and by a gun
It’s crazy crazy
It’s crazy crazy

Protect yourself
Defend yourself
Buy a gun for freedom
Gun Control
Pacists
Do we really need them?
Yes we do
It’s crazy crazy (crazy crazy, crazy crazy)
It’s crazy crazy (crazy crazy, crazy crazy)
This gun madness never ceases to amaze me
Crazy crazy

I’m still legal
I’m over 21
And I’ve the right to arm myself
And go and buy a gun

I’m still legal
Not over having fun
To have a joint in Washington State
Or go and by a gun
It’s crazy crazy (crazy crazy, crazy crazy)
It’s crazy crazy (crazy crazy, crazy crazy)
This gun madness never ceases to amaze me
Crazy crazy (crazy crazy, crazy crazy)
Crazy crazy

Says BP “I wrote the song in response to those sickos shooting up schools and cinemas and barracks. The situation is out of hand and sadly it’s going to happen again”.

‘I’m Still Legal’ is primal caveman rock bluespower ~ John Lee Hooker of the 21st Century ~ with The Viscount Of Verbal intoning against “this gun madness” while having a legal joint in Colorado and Washington State. “It’s crazy, crazy” indeed.

BP Fallon & The Ghost Wolves double-A-side 45 ~ ‘Black Crow’ b/w ‘Getchya Your Hip Thrust’

This will be the first time that BP Fallon & The Ghost Wolves play outside of the US. One of the hits of Austin’s SXSW festival this year, they will fly in from their base in Austin where they will be recording. They have already released the double-A-sided US-only limited-edition 45 ‘Black Crow’ b/w ‘Getchya Your Hip Thrust’ (Pau Wau Records) while The Ghost Wolves debut album ‘Man, Woman, Beast’ (Plowboy Records) is receiving rave reviews.

LouderThanWar says “Think primal blues, think glam rock sleaze and think punk rock attitude. Carley fronts the band with her fucked up guitar destruction and at times plays a one string weapon that sounds like the impending apocalypse. Jonathan beats the living crap out of an already beat up drum kit and they both sing, howl and have a splendid old time”. Read more here

Says BP Fallon of his collaboration with The Ghost Wolves “Carley and Jonny are the coolest. I feel very honoured to have them backing me”.

Says Jonny Wolf to DeadWeather Denver at Waxoholics about playing with the legendary BP Fallon “”Oh, well BP is just a hell of a guy first off – I mean first you have his history, which is very deep and deserving of respect – but we’re really interested in what he’s doing moving forward. As in, here’s this older guy, he’s worked in and around music all his life, with some real luminaries, but never actually played, and just now he decides it’s time to start a rock’n’roll band. How many people at that age can say that?

“He has a really unique perspective – I like to think of him like a shaman or a musical witch doctor or something and he brings that to his show and people love that”.

We’re reflecting on the amazing gigs that BP Fallon has been enjoying with his long-term collaborators from Texas, The Ghost Wolves

Their latest round of rocking embraced SXSW in Austin where they played six wild shows.

Waxoholics

In the latest Waxoholics, Johnny Wolf is interviewed by DeadWeather Denver:
You’ve worked with BP Fallon, most recently on his 2014 SXSW showcases. What has playing with him been like?

“Oh, well BP is just a hell of a guy first off – I mean first you have his history, which is very deep and deserving of respect – but we’re really interested in what he’s doing moving forward. As in, here’s this older guy, he’s worked in and around music all his life, with some real luminaries, but never actually played, and just now he decides it’s time to start a rock’n’roll band. How many people at that age can say that?

“He has a really unique perspective – I like to think of him like a shaman or a musical witch doctor or something, and he brings that to his show, and I think people love that. I’m a big fan of his spoken word vibes. He’s very creative. It’s been a really interesting trip to do some music with him. We don’t typically let anyone else into our world, it’s not easy, but he came into it with a lot of grace and we enjoyed it a lot”.

In BP Fallon’s excellent wide-roaming pre-SXSW interview with DeadWeather Denver in Waxoholics, the singer notes “Maximum namedrop moment: John Lennon, bless him, told me ‘The Plastic Ono Band is Everyone’ and thus I too became a member, appearing in John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band twice on television, once banging a tambourine and another time pretending to play bass guitar.

“Now I wouldn’t dream of comparing our combo to him but yes, everyone is in BP Fallon & The Bandits and also we don’t believe in segregation between ourselves and the audience, we’re all in this together.

“Like I mentioned, Lenny Kaye has been a Bandit in Austin and in New York and in Ireland. Sean Lennon has drummed with us, Cara Delevingne has sung backing vocals. And last year at SXSW, Clem and Nigel and Aaron and I, us Bandits, at our live gigs we were joined on stage by Scott Asheton the drummer from The Stooges and Barrie Cadogan who plays guitar in Primal Scream.

“This year at SXSW Clem will be playing with Blondie and their schedule is very tight – so BP Fallon & The Bandits will be BP Fallon & The Ghost Wolves who are Carley on guitar and Jonny on drums and they’re incredible. Carley, well… she’s incredibly sexy, almost feral, and Jonny’s the coolest…”

And Oliver Gray reports
“I absolutely adored the amazingly resilient BP Fallon, intoning poems rather than singing and backed by an amazing Austin electric duo called The Ghost Wolves. Things like this you do not experience every day, and it feels such a privilege”.
