"everytime i get a good review in the gaurdian i think im doing something wrong" - thats not the exact quote but its something similiar. at the end of the day mes is laughing all the way to the bank.
and ive heard all this "the fall havent done anything good in 25 years" bullshit before and its tiresome. the only album they ever released that is consistantly good the whole way thru is hex. of course theres loads of filler and mediocre songs on everything else - so what? thats not the point. the point is that they have been releasing songs that are pretty much consistantly fucking better than what most of their contemporaries could do in their entire career.
some people need to stop trying to validate some mythic connection they had as true fall fans back in the obscure days.
