Pioneers of the British post-punk era, the Fall molded punk's ashes into an artier, more cerebral style that set the pace for the Pop Group, Gang of Four, Pil and countless others, as well as influencing the next generation (without the Fall there could never have been a Pavement). Their first live album A PART OF AMERICA THEREIN was a slightly shambolic (but ultimately winning) document of the group in performance. SEMINAL LIVE kicks it up a notch, capturing the band at a key period (1988-89), when they still had the spirit of old, but had picked up enough technique to back Mark E. Smith's punk/beat stream-of-consciousness rants with some interesting textures. There are even a couple of covers thrown in for variety's sake; the twisted country tune "Pinball Machine" and a surprisingly faithful (for the Fall anyway) take on the Kinks' "Victoria."
