Bend Sinister is such a great album, plenty of 10/10 tracks like this one and ROD

the bend sinister stuff I like is actually the more uptempo garage stuff

the dirgy stuff unfortunately is like diet Joy Division and I remember reading in MES autobio that he really wasn't satisfied with the production

I like the idea of a goth Fall though, which is how I hear parts of Bend Sinister. It's an interesting record at any rate

I think the rumor was that Bend Sinister was mastered at a speed a tad slower than was intended - that's part of what gave it that slow gothic vibe, I think. I don't remember if it was intentional or not. I wouldn't take MES's autobio too seriously though, as I think it was ghostwritten. I do remember enjoying it though.

But regardless, I'd take Bend Sinister over either Joy Division record.

Gross Chapel - British Grenadiers is their best tune to me - at least right next to Hexen Def. - Strife Knot. I think objectively PBL is probably a better album, but a gun to my head, I can only choose one Fall record, I'm taking Bend Sinister (with the caveat that it's the American version closed out by "Auto Tech Pilot", one of their most underrated songs, and the perfect closing song to that record).

his autobio reads as if he spoke it to the writer and it was just barely edited to make sense, (and then at the start of chapters there's pieces of MES writing) I think it's a pretty good reference

Between the Fall and JD I'll take... BOTH! Atrocity Exhibition, 24 Hours, She Lost Control and a few others are as we say in French "incontournables". Can't do without 'em

A lot of what's best in art is what they didn't intend

But how fluent was the writer in MES-speak?
