“The Fall — always different, always the same,” according to John Peel. The Fall was his favourite band. Formed in early 1977, they’ve released around 50 singles, 27 studio albums, and well over 50 live and compilation albums (although it seems like more). In August 2004 they recorded their 24th and sadly final John Peel Session.
The band has gone through numerous personnel changes over the years (there have been well over 30 different line-ups so far), and at present consists of New Musical Express Godlike Genius Award for Services to Music winner Mark E. Smith, his wife, Elenor Smith, Dave Spurr, Pete Greenway, and Keiron Melling. The Fall have signed with UK-based independent record label Domino Records. A new studio album – provisionally titled Our Future – Your Clutter – is due to be released by the label in Spring 2010.
