July 29, 2008 The Brooklyn-based band Falcon takes its name from an old friend of bandmates Shannon Ferguson and Neil Rosen. Jared Falcon has been in and out of institutions his whole life, but managed to write and record more than 300 songs in the late '80s on a shoddy tape recorder. The band has recovered those old tapes, and plays as a tribute band to an artist whose music never made it past living-room cassettes.
