I believe in BP Fallon

I only heard of BP Fallon's single because I keep up with Jack White news (he plays guitar and produces the single), but when I actually heard it, I was hooked. He tells us what he believes in.



BP Fallon is a legend to me, mostly because he was the publicist for both T. Rex and Led Zeppelin, who are my two favoritest bands by about a jillion miles. Beep's cool, and I've always wondered what he thought, though I don't think I ever imagined I'd get to know what he thought backed up by Jack White on understated slide guitar.

It turns out he believes in a lot of things, from Muddy Waters to Charlie Chaplin, which I get, although being of the other culture on the arts/sciences two cultures debate I feel weird about because it's not difficult to believe in things that are real, though I think I know what he means.

He also believes in Dr. Winston.

First person to write in with a cogent explanation of who or what Dr. Winston is or was gets bragging rights in the comments section, and I might have something interesting to send along to you as well, from my bric a brac box.

I'll be getting a copy of this single as it's included on my The Vault goodies for this quarter. And now I'm actually looking forward to it. Really, I think this is the breakout Vault platinum offer even though the usual suspects are a bit miffed (because they've already bought all of 2009's Third Man Records singles and a compilation is a disappointment to them).

Hi Sis

John Lennon, because of contractual commitments was credited on harry Nilsson records as Dr Winston O'Boogie, Winston was John Lennon's second forename.

Of course it also could be the Dr Winston of Megaman X the manga game, but I didn't know you were a Manga fan so that rules that one out.

You are absolutely 100% correct.

Hmm. The bric a brac I was going to award was a spare copy of Horehound, which you already have.

I do have something really nice I can send on instead, though, so watch out for a nice treat in the mail.

Hi Sis

Came across a copy of the poster for Deadweather's concert at SLC, don't suppose STB got you one did he? If not do you want it for your Deadweather wall?

Hi Sis

Yes you are right BPF has a good boogie beat it had me bouncing in my seat, pity he had to copy the Dylan prompt card, worked for Dylan as it went on longer than it should and because of that it worked when it shouldn't have done. Wish I had gone to see Dylan again last year, couldn't believe how good he was 3 years ago, everybody bouncing in the aisles, we even got told not to stand on the seats and dance not bad for 60 year old reprobate hooligans!!!!!

No, STB didn't go to the SLC concert. I would love one for my wall!

Well, thank you for giving me the opportunity to hear this, Beep does seem like a very cool dude who believes in some very wonderful things.

Listening to it, though, I realized the one thing I miss about Jack's involvement with TDW-- No slide. It doesn't quite fit the mood of their tunes, but I miss it anyway.

The two cigar-box guitars - Alison's black one and the white one - are open-tuned and I think I've seen Jack pick one up and play slide on it. Can't think of a specific show or track though.
