Alan McGee and BP Fallon's Death Disco nights are causing a revolution in clubland. And about time too
"Mr McGee, we are now on the air!” pipes up the inimitable BP Fallon as I switch on my tape recorder. The Fallon and Alan show are in town nursing hangovers and enthusing about kicking out the jams the previous night at their raucous Deathdisco Irish debut at Switch.
Prior to Deathdisco, BP Fallon and Alan McGee have been airing their record collections in New York, Detroit and Tokyo and are now bringing it all back home with regular soirees in London and Dublin. “
What we are doing now and what all sorts of people will be doing over the next few weeks is heralding the end of the cult of the celebrity DJ,” muses McGee. “Because you know what, it could be Pelle or Vigilante (The Hives), it could be Gillespie and Innes (Primal Scream), it could be me and BP, but it’s just four hours of rock ’n’ roll punk music.”
