Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Fall includes: Mark E. Smith (vocals, guitar, violin); Simon Rogers (guitar, keyboards, bass); Brix Smith (guitar, background vocals); Craig Scanlon (guitar); Stephen Hanley (bass); Karl Burns (drums).
  • Producers: John Leckie, Simon Rogers, Mark E. Smith.
  • As stubbornly maverick as ever, the Fall's tenth album hinges on their now-accustomed dissonance, into which a tighter, commercial edge was introduced. New guitarist Brix Smith, wife of leader Mark E., added a partly melodious sheen that brought an air of 60s subculture to the group's post-industrial rattle. Nothing was sacrificed in the process and while "Bombast" hurtles with a vicious power, talismen Can were acknowledged in "I Am Damo Suzuki," the name of the German band's Japan-born singer. Mark Smith towers over the proceedings, his voice prowling about the music, enhancing its intensity. This album shows the Fall extending stylistic barriers without sacrificing their individuality.
