1 - FALL, THE - DRAGNET - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Dragnet is arguably The Fall's best-known album. With the departure of Martin Bramah after Live At The Witch Trials, the band underwent yet another lineup shift in late 1979. Marc Riley switched to guitar and Steve Hanley joined on bass; the latter's signature basslines would become a major part of The Fall for the next two decades.Opening track "Psykick Dancehall" strikes like an elusive, working-class anthem with its bouncy tempo changes and Mark E. Smith's unfiltered vocals raining down on the dance-floor. "Dice Man" takes its direction from disheveled beats, stuttering lyrics and asymmetrical phrasing. Somehow Dragnet manages to be even more lo-fi than The Fall's debut, yet reveals a cohesive sound and fierce songs that would further build the band's cult following.

3 - FALL, THE - GROTESQUE (AFTER THE GRAMME) - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Bursting into the 1980s on a new label (the then-upstart, now-legendary Rough Trade) and with an augmented, audibly panicked lineup, The Falls Grotesque is the true purebred Fall release from the Marc Riley era. Released in the immediate wake of The Falls most beloved single (Totally Wired), the album carries over that righteously famed teethchattering, bolstered in no small part by the drumming of new addition Paul Hanley, brother of bassist Steve Hanley and aged only 15 at the time of recording. "Pay Your Rates" negates the notion of easing into things, opening the album with pure jitter, guided by hornet-buzz guitars and Mark E. Smiths commanding shout, allowing for breath only during the brief, lumbering waltzes that appear at unexpected intervals. "New Face In Hell" is an entirely alien take on dancehall post-punk - a kazoo-driven rave-up that holds an unshakable position in the bands canon. Many significant firsts surround Grotesque, including The Falls inaugural production partnership with Mayo Thompson and the debut of Suzanne Smiths wonderful artwork, both of which would play key roles in the bands following phase. Superior Viaducts edition is the first time that Grotesque has been available on vinyl domestically since its initial release in 1980. Liner notes by Brian Turner.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Pay Your Rates 02. English Scheme 03. New Face In Hell 04. Cnc-s Mithering 05. The Container Drivers 06. Impression Of J. Temperance 07. In The Park 08. W.m.c. - Blob 59 09. Gramme Friday 10. The N.w.r.a.

4 - FALL, THE - HEX ENDUCTION HOUR - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Hex Enduction Hour was originally conceptualized as the death knell for The Fall. Beleaguered by career uncertainty and guided by vague premonitions of collapse, Mark E. Smith declared that one full hour was needed to thoroughly and perhaps finally state his case with The Fall. This framework resulted in a true classic of the post-punk era and an album that gave The Fall their first taste of album chart success, thankfully removing surrender from the equation. Recorded in haste in both Iceland and England in late 1981, the performances on Hex Enduction Hour are among the bands most urgent and distinctive. The album begins with the severe provocation of "The Classical" and the terse punk of "Jawbone And The Air-Rifle," but its "Hip Priest" that stands out as Smiths calling-card theme, a song that would become inextricable from his character (or perception thereof) in the years that followed. The elongated "And This Day" fittingly positions the band as spell-casters, closing the hour by filling every conceivable bit of space with wild, primitive percussion and whimsical electric piano. Superior Viaducts edition is the first time that Hex Enduction Hour has been available on vinyl domestically since its initial release in 1982. Liner notes by Brian Turner.

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Classical 02. Jawbone And The Air-rifle 03. Hip Priest 04. Fortress / Deer Park 05. Mere Pseud Mag. Ed. 06. Winter (hostel-maxi) 07. Winter 2 08. Just Step Sways 09. Who Makes The Nazis? 10. Iceland 11. And This Day

7 - FALL, THE - LIVE AT THE WITCH TRIALS - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


The first full-length album of The Fall, Live At The Witch Trials, is not actually a live album. Emerging out of a two-day studio session at Camden Sound in North West London during a sickly December of 1978, Witch Trials amounts to the sinister foundation of the band's diverse sound. Every song explores drastically different styles and wild terrain, leaving much to decipher over its eleven tracks."Frightened" has magnetic attraction / repulsion that shifts between Martin Bramah's skeletal guitar, Yvonne Pawlett's plastic keyboards and the lurching rhythm section of Marc Riley and Karl Burns. Mark E. Smith's mesmerizing bark and eerie lyrics warp the cosmic context with each repeated non-chorus. "Rebellious Jukebox" takes yet another turn and showcases the band's more melodic leanings.One gets the sense that The Fall are in a time-travel hallucination (from 19th century witch trials to a scathing critique of the late-70s punk scene) where the band's snot-nosed scrabble afflicts the shape of pop to come. As Smith dictates, "We are The Fall, northern white crap that talks back."

TRACKLISTING: 01. Frightened 02. Crap Rap 03. Like To Blow 04. Rebellious Jukebox 05. No Xmas For John Quays 06. Mother-sister! 07. Industrial Estate 08. Underground Medecin 09. Two Steps Back 10. Live At The Witch Trials 11. Futures And Pasts 12. Music Scene

8 - FALL, THE - LIVE CEDAR BALLROOM, BIRMINGHAM 20-11-1980 - (LP) 
LET THEM EAT VINYL


DELUXE VINYL EDITION!!!When Mark E Smith died in January 2018, an era ended with him. The Fall were an English post-punk band, formed in 1976 in Prestwich, Greater Manchester. They underwent many line-up changes, with vocalist and founder Smith as the only constant member. First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the Fall's music underwent numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's lineup. Nonetheless, their music has generally been characterised by an abrasive, repetitive guitar-driven sound, tense bass and drum rhythms, and Smith's caustic lyrics, described by critic Simon Reynolds as "a kind of Northern English magic realism that mixed industrial grime with the unearthly and uncanny, voiced through a unique, one-note delivery somewhere between amphetamine-spiked rant and alcohol-addled yarn." They were always at their best on stage, and this collection captures them in full flow. Fantastic

TRACKLISTING: 01. States, Slags Etc. 02. The Container Drivers 03. Jawbone And The Air Rifle 04. Totally Wired 05. New Face In Hell 06. Printhead 07. An Older Lover DISC #2: 01. City Hobgoblins 02. Leave The Capitol 03. Pay Your Rates 04. The N.w.r.a. 05. English Scheme 06. Underground Medicine

10 - FALL, THE - ROOM TO LIVE - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


On Room To Live, The Fall take the hurried, all-or-nothing approach of their preceding Kamera Records releases to extreme ends. Forged via Mark E. Smiths continual disassembling of players and focus on previously unrehearsed material, the album collects The Falls most experimental and improvisational recordings. As proclaimed on the album cover, "Undilutable Slang Truth!" would be revealed throughout Room To Live. With the albums comparatively lo-fi production and always-teetering performances, the title track comes closest to a stab at pop (by The Falls standards), built on fantastically bent saloon swaying under one of Smiths by-now characteristic dressing-downs of square life. "Detective Instinct" is an unshakeable creeper, as languid and ominous as the band would get during the Marc Riley years. "Marquis Cha Cha" is a post-punk rhumba, beginning with fury and then easing into something only The Fall could conjure. Superior Viaducts edition is the first time that Room To Live has been available on vinyl domestically since its initial release in 1982. Liner notes by Brian Turner.

11 - FALL, THE - ROUGH TRADE SINGLES - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


The Rough Trade Singles collects The Falls four singles recorded for this influential label in 1980 and 1983 - How I Wrote Elastic Man / City Hobgoblins, Totally Wired / Putta Block, The Man Whose Head Expanded / Ludd Gang and Kicker Conspiracy - none of which appeared on any of the bands studio LPs. With 7-inches being the eras vehicle for buzzing communiqus, The Fall would use the format for short-form, standalone works rather than as mere promotional devices for forthcoming albums. "Totally Wired" is often cited (and rightfully so) as The Falls most infectious tune - an amphetamine-fueled anthem with stuttering nods to forebears, yet too incisive to have been made by anyone else. "How I Wrote Elastic Man" is another mad hoedown, one reimagined for the post-punk age. While the playful rhythm machine on "The Man Whose Head Expanded" almost suggests danceability, Mark E. Smiths idiosyncratic shriek on "Kicker Conspiracy" pierces through the twin drumming of Paul Hanley and Karl Burns and the groups unpredictable / unmistakable racket. Together these songs remain some of the absolute best material The Fall would ever release. Superior Viaducts edition is the first time that The Rough Trade Singles has been available on vinyl domestically. Liner notes by Brian Turner.Collection of singles originally released in 1980 and 1983 on Rough Trade Featuring "Totally Wired" and "How I Wrote Elastic Man" First time available on vinyl domestically Liner notes by Brian Turner

12 - FALL, THE - SLATES (10") - (EP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


If The Fall truly is a cult band, then Slates both benefits from and reinforces such shrouded obsessions. In presenting these six particular songs as a 10" EP, the inherent and attractive difficulty of The Fall's sound is made physical, framing the urgency of their singles from this period (notably How I Wrote 'Elastic Man' and Lie Dream of a Casino Soul) alongside lengthy rumblings normally restricted to long players. The tumbling and phased "Middle Mass" begins on an incredible high note, segueing into the snake-charm hypnotism of "An Older Lover Etc." "Slates, Slags, Etc." is built on stretched VU-inspired riffing, complete with ace feedback bleed that doubtlessly went on long after fade-out. Ultimately, it's the piercing chimes of guitar and marching drum grind of "Prole Art Threat" that elevates Slates beyond oddity. Truly one of Mark E. Smith's finest, busiest and most enigmatic performances, equally matched by a band at the peak of their powers. Superior Viaduct's edition is the first time that Slates has been available on vinyl domestically since its initial release in 1981. Liner notes by Brian Turner..

14 - FALL, THE - THE MARSHALL SUITE - (CD) 
WESTWORLD


The Marshall Suite" is a 1999 album by The Fall (their 20th). The album builds on the techno-influenced beats of its predecessor Levitate (1997), while also returning to a more rockabilly-influenced sound reminiscent of earlier Fall line-ups. The end result has songs like the catchy "Touch Sensitive", and the strange, complex, thumping jungle beats of "Crying Marshall". The album was long out of print, until now.
