‘Your Future Our Clutter’ by THE FALL – Released 10 Years Ago…

Old and new albums to make your day…

27 April 2020

YOUR FUTURE OUR CLUTTER is the twentieth-eight album – released on 26 April 2010, ten years ago – by the late great infamous Mark E Smith and his ever-changing backing band THE FALL. An overall striking and accessible record with several catchy rockers (O.F.Y.C. Showcase / Bury Pts. 1 + 3 / Hot Cake / Funnel Of Love) and the usual vintage Smith sneers. Not their best, but a classic compared to many other poor releases of that era.

AllMusic said: “This album is going to feature some esoteric references to their previous work along with some other oddball moves that are best appreciated… Too insider to cross over or consider one of their classics, but an otherwise solid Fall effort offering everything fans require.” Full review here

THE FALL Released Twelfth LP ‘EXTRICATE 30 Years Ago

21 March 2020

Thirty years ago, on 20 March 1990, turbulent post-punk legends THE FALL, the late
great MARK E SMITH‘s combo, released their 12th album ‘EXTRICATE’. Probably the
only LP where Smith actually tries to sing instead of spitting and sneering and somehow succeeds. It’s also the longplayer with one of their best-known songs ‘Telephone Thing‘.

AllMusic wrote: “Working with producers Rex Sergeant, Craig Leon, and Adrian
Sherwood, the post-apocalyptic sound of the ’70s had been smoothed to a sheen.
There were still moments of anarchy and dissonance, but generally they were
swaddled in synth-driven beats and high-tech production that smoothed out any
remaining rough edges.”

THE FALL Released Their Second Album ‘DRAGNET’ 40 Years Ago Today…

26 October 2019

40 years ago today, on 26 October 1979, THE FALL released their second LP called ‘DRAGNET‘. Probably one of their messiest, rawest, grimmest and most chaotic longplayers ever with the late MARK E. SMITH spitting and sneering viciously and mercilessly from start to finish. Most of the critics loved it despite the minimalistic
and shrill production. Mark E. Smith and Marc Riley were the only two members of the original line-up who remained after the release of debut LP Live At The Witch Trials
which appeared in March of the same year. The beginning of countless different
The Fall line-ups had started.
