Yeah, I know what you're saying. To be honest, I'm always astonished that Americans 'get' the Fall. They seem incredibly English, incredibly Mancunian even. But, y'know, you can't stop people enjoying things that are better than everything else.

i'm astonished that anyone truly 'gets' the fall, period.

(not that they're even remotely bad or anything, they're just so... well, y'know.)

It's just a bunch of simple (but cool as shit) riffs and melodies, repeated over and over and over and over again, with a guy drunkenly talking over top with no rhythm at all and no singing ability, and making noises. That's pretty much every Fall song, give or take. And it's awesome. I will agree, there is something otherworldly about them that's a bit unexplainable. I don't know what makes their music so captivating. I think it's because they're deceptively simple, in a "Pink Flag" kinda way. Sure, the riffs and the chord changes and all that are simple, anyone can play that kinda stuff... but the structures of the song are so brilliant. They usually never go on too long, and when the songs change (if they do) is usually what's most striking. Take a song like "totally wired", when the bass changes up ever so slightly about halfway through the song, it's the most amazing thing ever. Just one slight little bass, uh, "fill", I guess. Or how about "the man whose head expanded" when the entire song slows down suddenly? Just all these amazing little moments. Great lyrics. I dunno. Just a great band.

True, totally wired makes alot of sense though, especially for our generation. That's the one song I truly get, becuase to be honest glice nailed it, for my teeny american brain....that alot of it is really english, and I'm not that savvy.

Some songs I think I get well, but I won't dare to try and describe it to a bunch of brits and Atsonicpark.

haha.


Some songs of theirs are unnerving to drive to, kinda like the first time I heard Sy's Evol and was driving and wanted to pull over, in a good way.

That's why I fell....for the fall....because then english scheme came on and was like...happy happy joy joy...haha

I got his Autobiography on Monday, its out in paperback for a fiver in HMV. It reads like he's dictating it to you directly from the pub, starting out with a denouncement of the last incarnaation of the band that all quit on tour in America, then describing his childhood and what he did when he left school.
Not revelatory thus far but its enjoyable enough
