BP Fallon & The Bandits - "Kill Me Till I Crawl" | Music 2014 | SXSW

February 6, 2014
THE DISSIPATED GLAMOUR OF THE NEW YORK NIGHTLIFE After a lifetime as a force behind much of rock & roll's past greatness -- being press officer for Island Records, Led Zeppelin, and T-Rex (he's "purple-browed Beep" in 'Telegram Sam'); managing Johnny Thunders circa So Alone; testing Paul McCartney's stash as an employee at Apple Records, etc. -- BP Fallon decided it was high time to play rock'n'roll himself. Thus, he stumbled into Austin's Red Horse Ranch Studio last fall with Blondie's classic rhythm section, Nigel Harrison and Clem Burke, plus New York Dolls stand-in guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan and Austin Small Faces/Faces Hall of Famer Ian McLagan. What emerges is some tough sounds backing Fallon's beat verse on the dissipated glamour of the New York nightlife. If titles like 'Fond of Cocaine' and 'Kill Me Till I Crawl' don't supply a clue, this ain't for you. 'Tis a strong debut for the Irishman, so a sequel might just be in order. - TIM STEGALL, AUSTIN CHRONICLE, NOV. 8th 2013 on the BP Fallon & the Bandits album 'Still Legal' (Vibrosonic Records)
