how much can they really matter when you need liner notes to understand them, was thinking about that

definitely awesome lyrics on Fall songs though, MES writing style influences the character of the music too I think, he has as unique a voice on the page as into the mic

I know what you mean but... one of my best friends who I'm currently across the ocean from shares a bunch of Fall content with me and I started listening to some of it mainly to chat to him about it (cause otherwise we don't have a lot in common these days, he's got kids etc). And some of it is just nice to listen to.

You could make that case, possibly, but only when you finish your Fall journal. It's common knowledge that true Fall authorities finish their Fall journals.

I'm guessing the "intended audience" of the songs, inasmuch as such a thing exists, would've spoken the same working class Mancunian dialect

Never not obsessed with this one

This is my pick for the best Fall tune of the '90s - represents the band's ethos very well.



The band always had interesting b-sides too - even in the '90s. This one in particular sounds quite unlike the majority of the rest of their work, partly due to the absence of MES in the track.

Wait a sec, those were actual English words Mark was using?

All this time I thought he was singing some made up alien language like Magma or something.
