BP Fallon’s ‘Fame #9’ 45 produced by Jack White: The First Review
“… one of the most unique 45s this year”
“‘Fame #9’ is my favourite spoken word track ever and is certainly up there with Lenny Bruce’s ‘Psychopathia Sexualis’ or David Shrigley’s ‘The Jist'”.
‘I Believe In Elvis Presley’
“This track is pure magic… Got this one on constant loop. Could this be the best/first 45 to name drop Oscar Wilde and Lewis Carroll? Just love everything this tune encompasses…”
BP Fallon Interview by Jack White
“Again this track for me is pure gold… The booming of Jack’s disembodied voice over the talk-back monitor… is like BP is being interviewed by his own conscious (sic) or God himself”.

This is all getting out of hand. There’s BPFallon singing away about Elvis & Jackson 5 and in his band are Jack White playing guitar and the drummer from the Raconteurs Patrick Keeler and somebody obviously very famous too on bass and guitar who is called Society Red on the record. Couldn’t BP get anybody any good? The Bogmen? Seriously, a very rockin song with insightful lyrics and very different.

I’d love to get my mitts on the coloured vinyl – the jukebox tag is class!

Society red is the mane of a piece by bebop tenor player Dexter Gordon

Is Society Red BP Fallon’s Led Zeppelin friend John Paul Jones under a different name due to contractual restrictions ie Them Cooked Vultures?

How come BP Fallon has never made a record before? He’s worked with bandswho had their own lables like Beatles [Apple], Led Zeppelin [Swansong], TRex [TRex Wax Co] but it’s taken the genius Jack White to have the vision to make a record with him. About time!

That bit in Fame#9 about Elvis being fat and noone saying “elvis I love you. Have an apple” is spot on.

Society Red is a character in the movie Cool Hand Luke with Paul Newman. The mystery deepens!
