58 GOLDEN GREATS (2022 repress)
Expanded 3-CD follow up to the iconic now out of print ‘50,000 Fall Fans Can’t be Wrong’ compilation, now features songs right up to the group’s 2018 releases.
Compiled and annotated by long time Fall aficionado Daryl Easlea from across all the labels the band has appeared on. The booklet designed by long time Fall designer Becky Stewart contains a track-by-track overview. Mastered by Andy Pearce from the best sources available. Formed in Manchester in 1976, The Fall were a seminal English post-punk group. The group existed in some form from that point on, built around its founder and only constant member, the late, great Mark E Smith. Initially associated with the punk movement of the late 1970s, the group's music underwent stylistic changes over the years, but was always characterised by an abrasive guitar-driven sound and frequent use of repetition, underpinned by Smith's distinctive vocals and often cryptic lyrics. This compilation is ideal for anyone wanting to discover the weird and wonderful world of the Fall. "They are always different; they are always the same."
