British post-punk legends the Fall played Blackburn's King Georges Hall in 2002, just a year after the release of 'Are You Are Missing Winner', which heralded in a new line-up working with Mark E. Smith and a handful of collaborations. 'Yarbles' is a selection of a dozen highlights from that performance at King Georges.
The Fall are English post-punk royalty, a Manchester band based around the constant supervision of one Mark E. Smith, who has remained their only eternal member. This double CD and DVD collects an epic and unbelievably long gig performed in the glorious Blackburn, all the way back in 2002. It looks over a variety of songs in their vast, storied discography.
A deeply rare psych-pop obscurity from 1969, barely ever available to begin with and only sort-of reissued in 2009 by Record Collector magazine. But now, one can actually straightforwardly buy Pussy Plays, the only full-length record ever produced by Pussy. Contains everything that you love about the 60’s. Cream coloured vinyl release on Secret Records.
