Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Contains 5 bonus tracks.
  • The Fall: Mark E. Smith (vocals); Marc Riley (guitar, keyboards); Craig Scanlon (guitar); Steve Hanley (bass); Paul Hanley (drums).
  • Includes liner notes by Nick Church.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered.
  • 1980's GROTESQUE, The Fall's third studio album, is considered one of the band's most difficult and threatening works-even by Fall fans. Consisting mostly of one-chord live-in-the-studio jams that veer between Hasil Adkins-style crazed rockabilly and Mekons-esque deliberate sloppiness-verging-on-incompetence, the album is one of the ultra-prolific band's most extreme and aggressive statements.
  • As would be the case with such future noisemongers as My Bloody Valentine or Sonic Youth, the cacophony becomes so persistent that it creates its own sort of off-kilter beauty. Above this racket, theorist/provocateur Mark E. Smith bellows and sneers his sociopolitical broadsides, most effectively on "Pay Your Rates" and the almost-melodic "Impression of J. Temperance." GROTESQUE is not for the timid, but its pleasures are many for those who can withstand the surface discord.
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 - "GROTESQUE succeeded in etching a landscape both grittily everyday and starkly surreal."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.127) - "Mark E. Smith makes mincemeat of the class system in four minutes."
