A few months ago I would have said crap. Now, I would still say crap, but with a :WF: 9. I still don't like them but I respect them a little more. All I've listened to is This Nation's Saving Grace and the songs on it are way, way, way too long. I guess they're like that intentionally but it's fuckin boring. Maybe if you're in a club dancing or something and a Fall song comes on it would be alright.

Pretty consistently interesting, at least. NOT CRAP. Except for the part about beating up women; crap for that.

aha...this is complicated. It's more patronizing and chauvanistic to say he "beat" her up. By all accounts, including her own I think, Julia Nagle won that fight. Did you see his shiner the next day at Brownies?

I still love The Fall (esp. Slates, Hex, and Grotesque). The new record is pretty keen, too. Not CRAP!

i was going to post a link to their august 2004 peel session, which was online for a long time, but it seems to have been taken down. it's really, really good--better than the stuff on COTC--and has me excited for the upcoming lp. it will be included in the peel session box early next year, which has all of them, and is something like 5 or 6 CDs.

"Hex Enduction Hour reissue is on the schedule for January 2005 in 2CD deluxe expanded edition (I presume with slipcase for this one). CD1 will be the original album, CD2 bonus tracks including Peel Session 15/9/81, Look Know & I'm Into CB, and 6 live tracks."

That photo more or less confirms my suspicion that Mark E. Smith is turning into Ross Perot.

The new album, save for a few tracks, (the one about Camber Sands and viagra comes to mind) is pretty damn good. That _50,000 Fall fans..._ is a good starting point for those (like me) who are unfamiliar with their millions of recs.

Extra points for this guy http://i.somethingawful.com/mjolnir/ima ... esmith.jpg
