The Fall
Totale's Turns (It's Now Or Never)

The Fall have always been fond of a live album and this goes all the way back to 1980 when they issued 'Totale's Turns' but as always with the Fall there's studio recordings mixed in there as well just to confuse matters.  Here you get a 140 gram re-issue of the original album. A nice way to celebrate Mark E Smith's 60th.

The Fall
New Facts Emerge

"Produced in conjunction with Mark E Smith" says the press release. Let's hope he was involved somewhere even if only for microphone gurgling. This is the Fall's millionth LP but the first since 2015's 'Sub Lingual Tablet'-  a lifetime in the Fall world. Now settled in a dependable trudge-a-long line up let's hope this has some of the panache recent records have lacked. On weird formats.

The Fall
Live In Clitheroe

Live set by The Fall, captured in 2013 at Clitheroe Grand. By all accounts, Mark E. Smith and his band of merry men and women were in splendid form at this show, even if Mark did do his old ‘sing from the dressing room’ trick for the last few songs. Live In Clitheroe is released on vinyl with a nice vintage-design sleeve by Ozit Dandelion.

Blaney (featuring Mark E. Smith)
Urban Nature

Ed Blaney was formerly a member of The Fall, which is probably what made it possible for him to enlist Mark E. Smith himself to provide vocals on his album He’s lucky Smith didn’t claim it for himself as a Fall album under the “me and yr granny on bongos” doctrine… Smith drawls superbly over the rock instrumentals of Urban Nature. On Yerrrr Productions.

The Fall
Hex Enduction Hour

Arguably the single greatest album in The Fall’s 41 year history, 1982’s Hex Enduction Hour documents Mark E. Smith at the peak of his powers, fronting the most powerful lineup of the band. Steve Hanley’s bass is generally to the fore, flanked by guitarists Craig Scanlon and Marc Riley, and crucially featuring the twin drums of Paul Hanley and Karl Burns. At this point MES had a knack for combining kitchen-sink realism with the uncanny and supernatural, refracted through a Burroughs-esque prism. Recorded in a draughty cinema in Hitchin and a cave in Reykjavík, the album is bombastic, abstract, abrasive, hilarious, belligerent and utterly exhilarating. The original crammed an hour of music onto a single LP, but this remastered Superior Viaduct reissue achieves much better sound quality than letting it sprawl over a double. If you’re looking for a way in to a potentially bewildering discography, start here!

The Fall
Grotesque (After The Gramme)

Really rather early material from The Fall here: Grotesque (After The Gramme) is only their third album, putting it in the first ten percent of their studio catalogue. 1980 Fall are still extremely direct, with the line-up including Steve Hanley and Marc Riley at this point. Reissue includes extra tracks, including contemporary singles and a Mark E. Smith ‘self-interview’

The Fall
The Marshall Suite

Remember when The Fall incorporated techno-ish beats into their eternally-rolling post-punk snarl sound? Well remember it now: 1999’s The Marshall Suite is back on vinyl for the first time in years! Mark E. Smith does his thing from within a dense mix of big-beat, and it works surprisingly well. The Marshall Suite has been reissued by Let Them Eat Vinyl.
