SHOULD MARK E. SMITH HAVE GIVEN PAUL SIMON A CREDIT FOR THIS?

The+Fall+-+The+15+Ways+EP+-+5-+CD+SINGLE-140454

There may 50 ways to leave your lover, but there’s seemingly just 15 of them apply when it’s a bloke you’ve to walk out on:-

mp3 : The Fall – 15 Ways

An absolute belter of an indie-pop song from 1994 that really deserved a far higher chart placing than the lowly #65 it staggered to. It’s jaunty as fuck!!!

Mine’s a 10″ clear vinyl effort with two equally tremendous b-sides.

mp3 : The Fall – Hey! Student

mp3 : The Fall – The $500 Bottle Of Wine

Whoever says The Fall are one-dimensional and that MES is just a po-faced northern whinging bastard should listen to these and re-assess….(and yup, I’m looking at you ctel)

Enjoy

  1. You just can’t go wrong with the Fall. I’m sure I have this 10-inch too, packed away. As you said, excellent record. As CTEL will agree, no doubt.

  2. …but Mark E Smith does appear to be a “po-faced northern whinging bastard”, as you so delicately put it.

  3. will give the po-faced northern whinging bastard a go. but a bit like olives, I’ve been here many times before and still find them unpleasantly sour.

  4. Currently listening to all 30 Fall studio LPs in order (save one cock up), On number 29. Have to say there are very few bad ones. He’s a genius, but also a right old git.

  5. I’m not a big Fall fan but I think he can be hilarious. Lee Perry needs a credt for Grudgeful though.
