Let's hear it for the mighty Fall.

I would say my favourite album would have to be THIS NATIONS SAVING GRACE.

Mark E Smith is a treasure. Grumpy legend.

I demand a Mark E Smith smiley.

That's the first Fall album, what's it like?

I'm an Edinburgh man myself"

I AM DAMO SUZUKI


Generous, valeric, Jehovah's Witness
Stands in Cologne Marktplatz
Drums come in
When the drums come in fast
Drums to shock, into brass evil



What have you got in that paper bag?
Is it a dose of Vitamin C?
Ain't got no time for Western medicine
I am Damo Suzuki



The fuck-up like red acid rain
Give it to me Daki every day
Who is Mr. Karlheinz Stockhausen?
Introduce me
I'm Damo Suzuki



Soundtracks, Soundtracks
Melched together, the lights
The lights above you



Listener was in cahoots with Fritz Lieber
And read him every day
Recipe for fear gas, amount of salt ash
I put by [cup of] meine fire, okay
I have no time for Western medicine
I am Damo Suzuki



May we go back to days pre-Virgin
Cannot get on clear vinyl
The handle that was brass, is now brass evil
The rock that was an egg, is in wrong cradle
The hand that cradles the rock, makes egg gooey
I am Damo Suzuki



Is this west latent pattern?
Run it, says Damo's spirit
Is this lesser European?
Speak it, says Damo's spirit
I am Damo Suzuki

great band mark e smith is a legend, and of course he's got ANOTHER new line up for the fall Icon_eek there's so many albums in the back catalogue it's pretty hard to know where to start!!!

There was an article in the Guardian earlier this year about the many former members of the Fall. In case you missed it:

Currently listening to tracks from Fall Heads Roll on youtube (since there's the option of buying it for £3 in Rough Trade), and...

wikipedia Wrote:Their twenty-fifth studio album, entitled Fall Heads Roll, was issued on 3 October 2005, preceded by the single "I Can Hear the Grass Grow". This was heralded as one of the best Fall albums in years, with the new line up being particularly acclaimed.

Nope. I have four of the five preceding it and all six after it, but Fall Heads Roll is crap. Thumbd
