Stefan here... I'm going through a rough patch and am
taking an indefinite break from the Fall online (first
since 1996, when I started the gigog). You can find
most of the Fall news, gigs, etc. posted on the forum.
Conway will try to keep the news page updated. Please

I'm not one to endorse detective work on the
meanings of Mark's lyrics, but I thought I would
point interested Fall fans in the direction of what
I believe is the inspiration for the lyrics to
Cowboy George. The song seems to be about my wife's
Uncle George, who we made a film about, and gave a
copy to Mark in 2006. We consider the song to be in
large part a tribute to his spirit in the face of
the law: he was convicted of making terroristic
threats in California, and served a year in San
Quentin at age 65.

Met my frend Alex at the pub, a good pub in
Camden is hard to find, but this was out of the way
and OK. I hadn't even been going to go in fact as a
friend was having a birthday at the excellent Lahore
Kebab House where he had pre-ordered several Nargis
kebabs - basically colossal curried scotch eggs.
Also, the last couple of times I'd seen the Fall
they'd been mediocre-rubbish, and I don't like Koko.
Headed down to the venue, got in, frend revealed
it has a roof a terrace, a thing I did not know. We
went up there with the rest of humanity, and drank
our expensive lager from plastic glasses, but it was
almost pleasant, almost civilised - rooftops and
fresh air, well as fresh as a hundred smokers packed
on to a small roof terrace will allow.
The thing is, it clearly wasn't absolutely sold
out, which was a good thing, as it meant without the
crowd being sparse you could at least find a place
to nestle in the main area. Another thing, they came
on v prompt. Ship-shape and Bristol fashion. This,
as probably everyone here knows is almost unheard
of. Smith liking to keep you waiting. In fact there
used to be a rumour wasn't there that the start of
the intro tape indicated when Smith had entered the
building, no doubt having got impossibly lost en
route from the next-door pub. But nope, straight on,
caught us unprepared, by surprise, guard down, and
just flew helter-skelter into matters.
Cosmic, as I believe it's called, rocked and Hot
Cake bounced, like a rubber wardrobe falling down a
flight of stairs, immediately sustaining and
enhancing the immense good cheer that seemed to
pervade everyone in the hall. Immediately clear that
Smith was snappin', flying around inside the songs
like a monkey in the rigging.
Hang on, I've got to get mysen a Fernet if I'm
going to keep this up. Revolting stuff - smells like
turpentine and looks like India ink - but it keeps
the demon at the door.
Then came a new'un, I've Seen Them, which got
stuck in my head for days if not weeks after. It was
somehow haunting. I think it was the fey tones of
Smith's refrain - 'I've seeeeeeeen them....' like a
Cassandra of the modern, voice curdled with
contempt. But it was also driving because of the
propulsive drums and The Eagle I think it was was
shouting in the background 'I'VE SEEN THEM GO! I'VE
SEEN THEM GO!'. There was a moment in the middle
where Smith's voice seemed like a viper of ferocity
coiled round the mic - really worked himself up he
did, it was great to see.
After that he said...
"Onto/under(?) the bridges of the senile...."
Then after that they did an extended Strychnine,
which I was delighted about, cos I wasn't expecting
it at all. It had that great rockabilly Fall sound;
the loosely-associated tightness, ramshackle and
unstoppable, which is one of their great live
sounds. It always puts a grin on my face, the
absurdity of it all. In fact writing now, it reminds
me of a very very bad circus I saw in Brittany as a
child, where an old and extremely reluctant and
irritable goat was made to clamber up a small tower
made out of wooden furniture, tables and chairs, and
stand precariously at the top, proud but also
utterly preposterous. That was what The Fall were
like, a rickety tower of tables and chairs, base in
Ys, spire reaching up to the moon.
Smith's screams in Strychnine, nothing like G
Roslie's spine-chilling aural lightning, were more
like a man suddenly genuinely terrified by something
or an immediate reaction to the realisation that
you're falling off a cliff. AAAAAAAAAARGH. Like
that. It was most amusing and invigorating.
The tombstone beat of Muzorewi's Daughter was
very impressive. I'm normally a bit sceptical about
new Fall doing old Fall - it's usually not as a
good, but this really was great, had the aura of
tribal magic, distant stars and deserts seen outside
the window of a dank industrial back-to-back.
Maybe it's because the new material is so
similar, so mystical sounding that this old and
spectral material felt like invested with such
power. A thought provoked by Cowboy George being
next, and although my friend later described it like
Ennio Morricone being kicked in the balls by Mickey
Mouse, it's a strange plangent song, which turns
into that section which is so brilliant live, which
is just Smith wearily declaiming over the
oscillating synths. Some pleasingly strange stuff
about sterilised monks and Cowboy George gradually
stumbling his way across heathland to...
I'M NOT FROM BURY! This was fucking hilarious
mainly because a) Eleni was being v amusing, waving
her hands about in between keyboard strikes, and
grinning like a loon while shouting I'M NOT FROM
BURY. This was f'ing great in fact. A single one of
the blasts of guitar contained more real magic than
the entire commercial franchise of Harry Potter. oh,
er b) it rocked.
And just reading back, I'm remembering what was
so good was the pacing. You had energy, new stuff,
terror, fun - it's a classic Fall combination
I think there were some new programmes mentioned
in I've Been Duped, a song that has really benefited
from its live performances (think I first saw this
in an All Hallow's Even performance at the Hackney
Empire), like pop krautrock.
A new one again. I think he kept saying 'But I'm
from Düsseldorf' - again, v enjoyable. And again,
mainly, as with all the gig, because Smith was
clearly enjoying it all so much. You know, we were
just nodding away, completely under the spell. Also,
Smith had great control of the amps, suddenly
unleashing surges of raw guitar over the already
Another new one, I kept thinking was a version of
Beetle Bones n Smoking Stones, cos it sounded like
the session version they did of that, and Smith kept
on gurgling 'It's good enough for me, it's good
enough for you', but I was reliably informed later
that it was the song Greenway. Long and
incomprehensible spoken-word narrative stuff over
the top, interspersed with mocking guitars and Smith
taunting 'Greeeenwaaay' over the top. Probably a
good point to say that the group just looked and
sounded great. So intent upon their instruments and
the Fall Gemeinschaft.
Chino was utterly marvellous. Like the album
version (one of the best songs on that LP I think)
x10. Languorous, bleak hospital-drug psychedelia,
like Denton Welch + JG Ballard or something. One of
the best Fall songs in recent years I'm tempted to
say after that performance.
Then WEATHER REPORT! Oh man, this is great. After
its sunbleached weariness, it sank into its
synthesised black whirlpools, and then suddenly
flowered into a rocking-out conclusion.
Sorry I'm running out of puff/Fernet a bit and I
gotta go to bed. Mr Pharmacist was a jumpin' encore.
I always like it when they do this because I know a
number of people around the place will be saying
'Not THIS again', which redoubles its fun, which is
Then Smith orders everyone off, the lights go up,
and people start filing out. Then suddenly,
inexplicably, 'for reasons unfathomable but to me
wholly admirable', THEY COME BACK ON! And perform
one of the most startling versions of Reformation
I've heard, in fact, top ten Fall live moments of
all time (there's a fee for listing them, a $500
bottle of wine, so don't ask). It was so abundant,
despite its simple repetition, a seething black
tentacle of bass + marsh-light keyboards, and then
Smith, opening and shutting the aldis lamp onto the
landscape, briefly illuminating moments of terror -
floorboard, black river, motel. And did he start
singing That Ol' Swannee River at one point in it? I
think he did. The crowd loved it.
And then it finished.
Tremendous strange and compulsive fun. When
they're like this they're better than any film or tv
programme, books, whatever - because it's a one off,
unrepeatable, it has no chance to fade, a
conjuration that lives briefly and then dies when
done, and so is eternal. Grinning like fools at the
foot of the divine we were, as we tottered out.

Paul Hanley wrote in about CavFest
(the Cavendish Community Music Festival, West
Didsbury, M20) on Saturday, 17 September.
A great lineup (inc. Tom Hingley and
the Lovers w/S&P Hanley) and all profits go to the
Cavendish Primary School. Tickets are selling fast.
Mark E Smith was born in 1957 and grew up in Prestwich,
Greater Manchester. He left school at 16, and worked in
a meat factory and then for an import-export company in
Manchester docks. In 1976, he formed the post-punk band,
The Fall, who were championed by the late DJ John Peel.
He has been the only constant member since the band
formed. Tomorrow, The Fall will play the Friends Of Mine
Festival in Cheshire; in September, they will release
their 29th album, on Cherry Red Records. His
autobiography, Renegade, was published in 2008.

All UK comedians.

A post on the forum full of Fall news:
many thanks to Conway (please have a
wonderful time in the UK, et al.):
Marshall Suite reissue - it
finally went to production middle of last week,
after a few delays. We were waiting on the BBC for
the 2 tracks from the Robert Elms session, but they
couldn't locate any tapes. As it was a live-to-air,
it may not have been recorded.
I tried to broker a deal between Julia and Cherry
Red for her to provide some audio and visual
material for the booklet, however Cherry Red weren't
prepared to negotiate. I suspect they were worried
about the time ticking and they'd have to get the
tapes from Julia, have it mastered and then MES
would have to approve it's inclusion (which couldn't
be taken for granted, given the material).
In the end, it went to pressing those 2 BBC
tracks short of what Cherry Red had announced - one
of the dangers of pre-publicity, along with not
meeting the scheduled release date by a month.
And of course the artwork had to be redone to
delete the Elms tracks. It is packaged as a 3 disc
multi fold out digipak with a 12 page booklet. Notes
are by Daryl Easlea in a similar style to his
Sanctuary notes (as opposed to the extended
interview format he did for Beggars). The project
was basically run by the old Sanctuary team for
Cherry Red, as they are all now freelance - Steve
Hammonds project manager, Becky Stewart artwork,
Daryl and myself.
The BBC gave us a double whammy, as it recently
found the missing Clitheroe Castle live tapes,
unfortunately 6 months too late for inclusion in the
reissue of This Nation's Saving Grace.
No news on any further Beggars reissues at this
The new album - apparently recording is going
well. Mark is supposed to be putting down vocal
tracks the first week of June. Target for release is
September. Cherry Red are unlikely to give him a
hard time like Domino, so the chances are pretty
good it won't be delayed into next year. And it will
be released on vinyl.
