Liner Note Author: Daryl Easlea.
From the late 1970s to the early '00s, almost every year brought with it at least one Fall album. Throughout the career of the ridiculously prolific British post-punk band, the one consistent element has been Mark E. Smith. With his unmistakably entrancing vocal sneer and oft-absurd lyrics, Smith is the hard-living heart of the Fall, stridently leading a nearly endless array of musicians under the band's banner.
Nowhere is the Fall's longevity more evident on the first track of this two-disc collection, 1978's "Repetition," a spare, lumbering song charmingly dated by Smith singing "President Carter loves repetition." As 50,000 FALL FANS progresses, so does the group's sound, moving from the hyperactive, bass-heavy "Totally Wired" to the refined punk-pop glory of "C.R.E.E.P.," which prominently features Smith's then-wife Brix on backing vocals and guitar. The second disc follows Smith and company into the late '80s and beyond, featuring the electronic-tinged "U.S. 80's-90's," a brilliantly rambunctious cover of the Kinks' "Victoria," and the full-on dance track "Masquerade." For a concise overview of the Fall's long history, these 39 GOLDEN GREATS can't be beat.
