for all of you slagging off the fall and never having ebven heard of them and yet claim to be into music.... go out and buy a couple of fall albums, they are dirtcheap at this stage of life and ignorance isnt an excuse....... the fall are probably one of the most important "post" punk bands to emerge from either europe or anywhere. remember, pavement ripped off the fall admittedly by accident but thn accepted it!

as for mark slagging off the youth, ha fucking ha! so what, we all know he hates them as much as he hates most music made since 1950. its mark e smith for gods sake, take him seriously at your peril!

now go off and listen to some quality music and listen to the mighty fall......
i am amazed at the amount of slagging the fall have got on this thread. talk about touchy!

rather ripped is poor by sy stndards but o say that the fall went down since brix rejoined is partly true, she hasnt been in the band for 5 years now at least and 2 of the last 3 albums are probably the falls best work, fall heads roll and country on the click, admittedly the new one reformation post tlc is poor!

because he is so in tune with music these days and isnt a tv celebrity in any shape or form. john lydon does deserve recognition but not idolisation due to the many reforming of that second rate pub band called the sex pistols!

Yeah, I was just bring up Lydon's kind of "everything but me is irrelevant attitude" from PiL and comparing it to Mark E. Smith.

I think i read a quote by MES one time where he says "People take The Fall too seriously sometimes".

But its true if youve never even tried listening to them
1. Its a pain knowing which album to go for - the ones Dead Air Mentioned are fine together with Perverted By Language, if you like pink album covers.
2. Why base yr opinions of a rock band on the singer not liking one of the bands you like? Cmon now. And that Talking Heads reference must be about Franz Bleedin Ferdinand who went all guns blazing telling everyone how they loved The Fall, but i kept thinking... nope, youre ripping off Talking Heads you poor old Scottish Men.

I'm sure Thurston has mentioned that The Fall were an influence on Sonic Youth. The Fall were releasing records for about 5 years before SY formed, correct me if i'm wrong. Also an image of Mark E Smith appears in the Teenage Riot video.

Smith only listens to dance music, reggae, and Krautrock, apparently. I wouldn't expect him to like any of his peers or any younger bands, or admit to it anyway.

I thought it was good. Certainly not great. The problem was that the good songs were really good, and the bad songs were really bad... so you ended up with just a middle of the road record when you thought about it as a whole. But I still look forward to their next.

Rob, explain to me how my statement is ridiculous, yet you haven't even heard the Fall.

It's not an opinion, a FACT: The Fall have more GREAT albums than sonic youth. They happen to have more albums, period, this is true -- but they have a wide, wide group of albums that are consistently amazing.
