The Fall - The Complete Peel Sessions
AT their best The Fall make most other music wilt. Yet one of the many strange and wonderful things about them is that their Peel Sessions were streets ahead of the album equivalent the sessions were supposed to be helping promote.
So much so that often when the album came out it was a little underwhelming because it didn't have that version you treasured so much on it.
Which is why not only is this six CD box-set a great testament to both band and John Peel but also possibly the best Fall album that's yet been released.
Almost blistering with bile and hilarity in places 'US 80s- 90s' is a high ('Kentucky death keeps pouring down!' to the melody of 'Kentucky Rain'). So too is the furiously overdriven electric guitar and two drummer rhythm of 'Smile' as Smith dissects early '80s gay club etiquette (er?!) with his cranky pinpoint post-PC misanthropic slant.
No one observes from the shadows quite like Smith. And no one gives less of a stuff about what he says. Interestingly fans can chart their love affair with Britain's finest ever lyricist by checking the recording dates of each session.
You'll be surprised quite how long Smith has been needling you with his observations and outright gags. Time to chuck those cassettes away finally, then.
Well maybe not. After all part of the charm was hearing Peely wax lyrical before, after but NEVER during these incredible songs.
Quite unbelievable stuff.
