IMPERIAL WAX SOLVENT (2023 reissue)
The Fall’s 26th album, originally released in 2008.
Following the departure of the American musicians who contributed to ‘Reformation Post-TLC’, the new British
based line-up was to become the band’s last and longest serving incarnation. Alongside Mark E. Smith was Elena Poulou (keyboards, vocals), Dave Spurr (bass), Pete Greenway (guitar) and Keiron Melling (drums).
“Fact is, ‘Imperial Wax Solvent’, the best record of the year so far, is the latest product from a grizzled 50-plus who never winked nor flinched, and who's seen everything your daddy saw and more - and from The Fall, who are still, despite it all, The Fall. And believe me, it's not good, it's great.” The Quietus
