My Song of the Day:
The Fall – “I Wake Up In The City” (2005)
Feel free ta po-go – y’know ya want to…
What The Fall means to me:
The Fall is Mark E. Smith. Mark E. Smith is The Fall.
Over four decades, and having gone through about 66 band members – and countless artistic directions – this outspoken frontman, influenced by Can and The Velvet Underground (but hey! who hasn’t?) remains the only permanent member of this cult fave Mancunian band.
As BBC DJ legend John Peel’s favourite band, The Fall’s album and session tracks received constant airplay. Their sound – embellished with those distinctive vocals – constantly veered between the weird and the wonderful, but there was NEVER a dull moment.
They say he even sacked a band-member on the spot for daring to ORDER SALAD – uff, rock n’ roll, man…
Have a happy Monday!
