JP Chrissie and the Fairground Boys

"J P, Chrissie and the Fairground Boys - Biography by Chrissie Hynde I first met J. P. Jones in London, November 2008. I was propping up the bar on my own at a party at The Double Club in Highbury.. I was about 5 screwdrivers in when some scruffy boy-band looking guy sauntered over to the freebie bar.. He was pretty hammered too, but we managed enough of a conversation for me to ascertain that he was a musician; recently gone solo after his band 'Grace' split, and grew up on a fairground in Wales... [stuff happened].... The Fairground Boys are, Patrick Murdock on guitar, Vezio Baccio , bass, Geoff Holroyde , drums and Sam Swallow on piano /keyboards. Chrissie Hynde , January 2010
Their first gig was in April in LA. Their next gig is in Brooklyn TONIGHT (6/2)...

"if you let me" is their first single to be released soon is said to be inspired from the movie "let the right one in". I heard it on KCRW and it sounded fantastic. Chrissie continues to create great stuff. So happy JP asked her to collaborate!

Someone tweeted that the brooklyn bowl is not crowded for a free concert with Chrissie Hynde's new band. Don't care how she is, she still writes great songs and sings like no other. Perhaps her voice is lovlier than ever. Hipster losers. Come to Boston Chrissie. We'll show you big love.

Great new CD! We saw you, Chrissie, in Pittsburgh at the WYEP radio station gig and loved the new material. We even bought a CD from your publicist. We have been fans of the Pretenders for many years, but the new JP Chrissie and the Fairground Boys is fresh, upbeat and exciting! We are planning to see the Akron,OH show in a few days and can't wait! Love and Peace to you, Chrissie!!!

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
