    Fall recomendations

    This Nations Saving Grace was my first one , I think it's one of their better ones . Go for the version with Cruiser's creek on if possible . Grotesque is a pretty good example of the earlier stuff , try and get the expanded version with a bizzare Mark E Smith interview at the end :)

  • The current album "Fall Heads Roll" is a pretty good place to start, and it's easy to find.

    If you want an overview of everything, get the 6-CD Peel session set, and then see which era you might like best.

    I started with kurious oranj which was a great way to be slowly eased in I think. The marshall suite is a good way in too, if you want something newer, it's short and crunchy.
    I reckon perverted by language is the best album so make sure you pick that up too :)

  • Ok, thanks guys!

    I'll give some of 'em a go..maybe sans the 6CD-box : )

    I ran into some clips of The Fall and of Mr. Smith on WFMU blog and I'm already picking up some serious indentification vibes on the guy.. : )

    Anyways, I'm sure I'll fall in deep with the stuff.

  • 458489 A-Sides! Because it is fan-fucking-tastic and in my humble opinion representative of a lot of their best early material (with the important exception of "Totally Wired") but nobody ever names it and it really needs to be recommended more.

  • The Peel Sessions box set is a pretty good place to start, although I wouldn't recommend listening to it all at once. It's a pretty representative document of what the group has done and how it has progressed.

    Pretty cheap for over seven hours of music, too ...

    Euphemisms, Audrey, euphemisms ...
  • 50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong is a good 2CD career overview, & will set you back less than the Peel box.
