Curator and critic Bob Nickas and Nic Planck provide a critical discourse for iconic British post-punk band The Fall, in particular front man Mark E. Smith. The pair review the band’s seminal album The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall track by track, revealing the groups uniqueness in its brilliant disarray.
“The Fall have been around for a very long time, still going, influenced so many other groups, and have released any number of great records over the years. You think that one of the would have merited a slim volume by now, but no, the twats at 33½ were too busy putting out books on Radiohead, The Stone Roses, Patty Smyth, and U-fucking-2.”
