Urban, are you into Half Man Half Biscuit? They're like 80's jangle-indie with sardonic speak-sing lyrics about daytime TV over the top.
Well okay they aren't much like the Fall but if you don't know of them already you'd definitely dig them.

Dragnet is possibly my favourite Fall album. It's not as complete as some other albums ('This Nation's...is a close second) it's just the Lovecraftian, amphetamine-driven spell that gets me everytime.
Have you ever seen the great MES live?

Yes I am , but only for the past couple of years or so. I was put off for a long time because it seemed every gobby student I ever met was into them.

Not yet , but i'm working on it. As I don't live on mainland UK any gig I go to means air fare & hotel bills & time off work so I don't get to go to many gigs.

haha I sympathise but i'd have been grateful to have met more than the odd person at uni who was into anything even remotely like HMHB...
www.hmhb.co.uk

this site list ALL of the 80's pop-references in each song and it tripled my enjoyment of them once I knew who, say, Fred Titmus was....

the Fall though, they'll be touring until he dies so you still have time! i saw them once in Oxford 3 years ago for the Fall Heads Roll tour, fantastic album, great performance (a pure garage-rock racket). Having said that MES adjusting his dentures and mumbling into the mic is a far cry from the impassioned nihilism of yesteryear...

As long as he's a difficult moody git with a band behind him i'll be a fan

credence must be given to the Peel Sessions Box Set!!! I got this for 20 quid in HMV, I think they might have mislabeled it or something. Anyhow if you have more than one Fall album and you think you like them alot of the songs they did for these sessions put the album versions to shame, really. And there are some wicked covers on there - 'Beetle Bones n' Smokin' Stones', 'I Can Hear the Grass Grow'...

Not mislabeled

I got mine for £23 , and that was on the day it came out.

I've recently been filling the gaps in my Fall collection and am discovering some lost gems - you need to crack on with this thread mate! Warning: sad fanboy banter follows...
I disagree with you on 'Room To Live', the spirit of Hex runs through it I think, and it's just lopsided and typical of that era...

Yet it's the 90's stuff that I'm unearthing, totally with you on 'Extricate', it's very accessible and just kicks off the post-Brix period perfectly.
Everyone bangs on about 'the Infotainment Scan' being the peak of their early 90's 'techno-y' period but I'm not sure, it sounds stupid but the second half of 'Code:Selfish' and 'Middle Class Revolt' really do it for me.

Would be great to read some coverage of the later stuff ('Levitate', 'the Unutterable' etc); a real goldmine of the usual lyrical genius and pop undertones IMO.
