R-N-R: Black Plastic (Cleopatra Records) releases videos for 2 singles “Savage” and “Charcoal”releases videos for 2 singles “Savage” and “Charcoal”. Congrats! Please introduce yourself and the band a bit. Where are you based? Who is in it?

BP: Black Plastic is myself (Kevin Grady) and producer/musician André Obin. We mostly work on music remotely since I’m in Chicago and André is in Boston. I’m probably better known as the founder of Lemon, a cult magazine with some pretty amazing contributors: David Bowie, Daft Punk, Jeff Koons and Sonic Youth, to name-drop a few.

HOLY-WOW-Dreamland-Dmitry Wild-Jenniffer Claroscura

Roaring drum beats and a slick guitar riff are the perfect combo to introduce Dmitry Wild’s (ex-Wizard Sex) HOLY WOW‘s new single, “Dreamland.” Besides playing guitar and singing, this multi-talented singer/songwriter also produced the track! It’s always good to hear the evolution of a songwriter in his songs, specially in this case (in case you don’t know, Mr. Wild is also a 5 Star Author of  “Why Be Normal?” on Amazon). With a prophetic and deep voice he sings about a distant but yet reachable Dreamland through the eyes of a girl.

“People listen to music for two reasons: for the familiarity of content and the other one, for the danger of adventure. You may not like it – but it might change your life.” – BP Fallon

(David Bowie Special on UTV News.)

BP Fallon, music’s renaissance man doesn’t need an introduction, but if you are wondering check out his Wikipedia entry.

BP Fallon took a moment to review Savage Heart’s New Album, “Witch & Wizard.



On their debut album ‘Witch & Wizard’, Savage Hearts from the subterranean cellars of downtown New York weave dark grindy hypnotic guitar-led music like The Jesus And Mary Chain shaking hands with The Black Angels while nodding at Black Rebel Motorcycle Club plus there’s a taste of surf guitar, some swirling vocals and dirty bluesy harp, where the presence of shadows proves that there is light. Superb.
– BP Fallon

Check out his current band.

Iggy-Pop-Post-Modern-Depression

Rock’s prominent figures join together for a project. Iggy Pop, coined as grandfather of Punk, sits in a black suit and and a white open shirt, resembling a lizard who is uncomfortable to be wearing any clothes at all. Josh Homme, (QOTSA) wears a strict black suit with a red handkerchief and red socks. Classic! They announce to the the man on the tele, The Late show with Stephen Colbert they just released a new album together titled “Post Pop Depression” and they are going to be debuting a song Gardenia later on.

First impression of their live performance together. As anything Josh Homme produces it starts off with a super catchy riff, led by a bass guitar and an instrumentation of a full band which compared to Iggy Pop’s usual basic punk set up seemed to have a lot of sound, but when Iggy starts singing it all starts to make sense. That deep voice with a hint of of late David Bowie and Nick Cave it was the voice that David Bowie produced out of Iggy on the Lust for a Life record back in 77′.

The chorus goes:

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight?

Who is Gardenia is hard to tell but it doesn’t matter, since Josh Homme and Iggy Pop intertwine this word play with music perfectly. Definitely looking forward to the whole album.
