What was their last LP like?
Anyone see them in the last 12 months?
Should I go and see them at the Hackney Empire?
last album was great and have seen them a fair few times over the last few years and been pretty consistently excellent, sometimes a bit shambolic but always entertaining.............. One of my favourite bands.....
Go and see them.
Reformation tlc was dull - haven't seen them live since 2004 as I have a life but can't wait til hackney empire gigs
also get the tickets sent from booking agent, and you don't have to pay booking fee and MES gets more booze money........... details on the official non offical fall site.
and cheques to Alan Wise........
and no I don't work for The Fall!!!!!
standout track '50 year old man'.
my track of the year in fact. Another positive endorsement from me, buy the new album and go to Hackney. They were pretty good last time I saw them in Islington and oustanding at Primavera last year.
Reformation was one of the worst though The Fall have put out. However the Von Sudenfed album from last year was also excellent so MES hasn't totally been demented by the booze/speed yet.
Last time I saw them they played Reformation and it was probably as good as the Fall get.
sometime I don't even know what I'm trying to get at.
I was impressed. I didn't really know much about them at the time, and was dragged there on the recommendation of my friend who was there with me (I had planned to go watch Rumble Strips instead, which looking back is a decision I deserve to die for TBH). I was particularly impressed with the sheer prescence of Mark E Smith. The man is terrifying. Is his constant interfering with everyone elses amps and equipment a common occurence?
