About BP Fallon
Irish Renaissance man BP Fallon is a singer/songwriter/performer/DJ/writer and photographer. In a previous incarnation he worked at The Beatles’ Apple Records, was publicist to T.Rex and Led Zeppelin, managed former New York Doll Johnny Thunders and joined U2 on their ground-breaking Zoo TV tour with the title of ‘Guru, Viber & DJ’ - as well as enjoying a high-profile career as a broadcaster which is how he started, the controversial 17-year old schoolboy in 1964 popping up on black and white Teilefis Eireann tv screens every Saturday to talk about his beloved pop music while the establishment had apoplexy about his long hair and said he was a bad influence on the youth of Ireland. Crazy.
Since making his first record with Jack White nine years ago – ‘I Believe In Elvis Presley’ which Jack produced and played guitar on – BP has been concentrating on making music, releasing three albums. Last year his record with David Holmes, the homage to Irish guitarist Henry McCullough, featured Noel Gallagher on guitar. Remixed by Andrew ‘Screamadelica’ Weatherall, the 12” of ‘Henry McCullough’ was a hit on Record Store Day.
