The second album from The Fall gets the reissue treatment here. Dragnet, recorded in 1979, established the routine to which Mark E. Smith would indefinitely adhere; new music and new members. In contrast to Live At The Witch Trials, Dragnet features decidedly muddy production, setting a precedent for future albums. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Castle Music and Sanctuary.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 3rd November 2015
This is The Fall's second album - the lineup which recorded their debut Live at the Witch Trials fell apart, and bandleader Mark E Smith recruited mostly-new working-class lads into his band, which was now more guitar-based and Velvet Underground-influenced. For the first time, I find myself transfixed by the album. It's a strong, wild, imaginative album. The band's time is not rock-solid but it's not bad either. Rock and rockabilly rhythms collide with guitar drone and primal rhythms to create a mood of unease - kinetically spiky unease.
