For all those future 'what Fall albums should I get' threads, there's a Fall primer in this month's The Wire mag.
on how !!! is pronounced, though.
How do I change the !!! picture?
coincidence, it does indeed...
"The Fall's recorded output between 1982 and 1983 is incomparable and indispensable. Hex enduction Hour remains their greatest album and the Peel sessions that preceded Perverted By Language documented the group on the cusp of discovering a new and unique mode of expression that mixed rock's primitive structureswith a transcendental, avant garde aesthetic. The Hex era is great art, made by people who did everything they could to avoid looking or sounding like great artists."
Eat your hearts. out Sonic Youth
Live at the Witch Trials and Extricate (?) and I think they're great!
you're right. There are no bad Fall albums; last year's Fall Heads Roll was a cracker
I love that song too, but TNSG isn't one of my top 5 Fall albums, I'd have to say:
Perverted By Language
Hex Enduction Hour
in no particular order.
