Can’t believe we’ve reached ABON 0049 without posting a Fall track.
Without a doubt The Fall are one of the most important and influential groups of the last 30 years. They released their first single in 1978 and whilst there have been several points at which they looked like they might implode, they are currently still firing on all cylinders – 28 studio albums, 51 live albums and 24 John Peel sessions into their recording career.
I say ‘their’ career but actually since their inception there have been over 50 members of The Fall and only one of those has featured in every line-up. Come on down, founder, singer, Manchester City fan, lyricist, poet and Greatest Living Englishman Mr Mark E. Smith.
