The Unutterable
The album's out - have you all got it now? Hope so.

The Fall play Dublin Red Box on 24th Feb
The gig at Haarlem Patronaat is being rescheduled.

In the forthcoming January issue of The Wire (on sale: 2 Jan) there is an Invisible Jukebox interview with MES (the first person to be invited back into the Jukebox hot seat; his first appearance in it was way back in April 1995). The interview was done by Edwin 'Savage Pencil' Pouncey.

MES answers fans' qustions in the current (Feb) issue of Q magazine.

Two Librans appears on the freebie CD with the final issue of Select.

Charmonline have a very nice (though short) review of the Leeds Gig up.

Tiny, tiny Fallcon on the Idler site, in an article about Englishness in pop music:

"Aside from The Fall's outstanding collaboration with William Blake, "Dog Is Life/Jerusalem" ("I will not rest until Jerusalem is built in England's green and pleasant landů It was the fault of the government."), the most successful song to conjure up everything that's great about being out in the English countryside is probably Van Morrison's "Summertime In England", recorded, appropriately enough, in the south of France."


Finally, many thanks to Tina McClelland (www.photo2000.co.uk) for sending us the following photos from the Castlefield gig last year.
