Video: Big Audio Dynamite plays ‘Rob Peter Pay Paul,’ ‘E=MC²’ on Jimmy Fallon

Last night, the reunited Big Audio Dynamite returned to the American airwaves with a performance of “Rob Peter Pay Paul” — the original lineup’s first new song in 21 years — on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” You can check that out below via The Audio Perv, as well as a web-exclusive performance of the classic “E=MC².”

The band also played a show in Brooklyn later that night as part of its short U.S. tour; our friends over at Fucking Nostalgic were at the gig, and posted some great photos and a write-up of BAD and opener HR of Bad Brains (including the shot posted above).

  1. I thought the reunion tour featured the original lineup, but it looks like Dan Donovan has been replaced by a geetar player?

  2. Yeah, Donovan left the band at some point this summer and they’ve never said anything about it, as far as I can tell. But they even started cropping him out of their publicity photos.

  3. Davo is the replacement guitarist, long time guitar tech for Mick Jones

  4. I knew something was up! I could’ve sworn there was someone different at the Roseland show. I find it hilarious that they crop him out of photos…
