I own nothing by them. Which album should I start with, they have so many?
i suspect someone will suggest you get '50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong' and then branch off from there...
the rough trade one
i like it
and fall in love.
for the suggestions I think I'll skip the greatest hits and go straight for an album either grotesque or hex enduction hour.
cos it has a bunch of press clippings, a cardboard outter sleeve and includes the singles of the time, like How I Wrote Thingy Man.
its my only fall record for a reason. i wish i'd got 50,000 fall fans.
get The Complete Peel Sessions boxed set.
Â£25 for 6 cds of Fall loveliness. If you don't know whether you like them by the end of that then god help you...
that '50,000 Fans' thing the other week, and fell in love instantly. Fucking brazilliant. Just need to save up money and research where the best tracks are from to expand the collection now.
This thread gives me deja vu....
make this thread a sticky or something?
thread makes you sticky?
Get This Nations Saving Grace first.
It's easier to get into then Hex and is more representative of the overall back catalogue.
Or buy a crap album like Extricate and if you like that then you must be hooked already.
Get TNSG first if you want something more straightforward that'll give you an idea of what they're about.
Or the 50,000 fans compilation, which is very good.
Extricate is not crap! Bill is Dead! Chicago Now! Both worth the price alone!
Fall Heads Roll, their latest is great and then just work your way back!
I noticed Fopp were selling a lot of them for Â£7 and Â£5 at the moment...
Started with the Rough Trade double disker, moved on to Hex, Fall Heads Roll is really good too.
The 50000 comp probably looks like the best starting point though.
because my favourite Fall song is the one that a certain board-member-who-used-to-be-in-The-Faculty named himself after.
but it's an EP. :|
I've got it on 10 inch - god I sound like a fanboy
yeah start with 500 Fall Fans Can't be wrong
The Peel Boxset is the only place to start.
Get it for Christmas, demand it from someone.
I love the Fall and have a lot of their records but the Peel box is the business.
