I've heard nothing from either of them. I want to. Someone help me, give me some songs to listen to.
but you can't go wrong with something plucked at random from George Best or This Nation's Saving Grace (I know there are other Fall albums, but that's the only one I have).
If you don't like it, get Seamonsters.
Some songs to see if you like them: The Classical, Cruiser's Creek, Big New Prinz, L.A., Theme From Sparta FC, Edinburgh Man, Fortress/Deer Park, Garden.
You will. then:
i'd get into the indispensible early-ish albums in this order, to start with:
This Nation's Saving Grace
Grotesque (After The Gramme)
Perverted By Language
Hex Enduction Hour
then get 458489 A Sides
and then particularly check out in whatever order: Live At The Witch Trials, The Wonderful and Frightening World of the Fall, I Am Kurious Oranj, Shift-Work, The Real New Fall LP (Formerly Country on the Click), Fall Heads Roll and Your Future Our Clutter.
Forget about the Fall - far too many albums to get into! Bizarro, Seamonsters and even The Hit Parade by The Wedding Present are all on Spotify and worth checking out. There is a stack of Fall albums on Spotify but - I'm going to be honest - I've honestly never understood what people see in them. Especially over 28 albums!
*Barricades home, hides under bed, waits for all hell to break loose*
and is the album they will be playing in full on the next tour, and contains probably their 2 best known songs "Kennedy" and "Brassneck". The majority of Wedding Present fans seem to prefer "Seamonsters" which is also excellent. I'd also recommend "Take Fountain" and "George Best", but all their albums have been solidly great.
Songwise,I'd recommend Dalliance, Dare, My Favourite Dress, Perfect Blue, Granadaland, Heather, Click Click, Ringway to Seatac, Once More, Don't Talk Just Kiss
David Gedge's other band, Cinerama are well worth checking out too.
You listen to my super-special CD-length Peel Session playlist. Then look me in the eye and tell me you're a non-believer.
After that, you might fancy my OVERALL Spotify-centric Fall playlist. Again, CD-length so not too much to chew through.
If you pass that little test, go wild. I'll spill a little secret now, though: you might want to eventually get round to checking out The Unutterable and Levitate on Youtube. They're only my two favourite Fall albums after all.
