The Great Fall Album Listening Party.
This weekend, I will be mostly listening to the Fall.
The Fall Forum decided that this weekend would be the inaugural International Fall Album Listening Party. The idea is simple, listen to all 27 studio albums in order of release over the space of a weekend. 6 tonight, 10 tomorrow and 11 on Sunday. At the point of posting I'm half way through Dragnet, the second lp and not terribly good. I have been surprised at how good Live At The Witch Trials sounded, an album which I'm not overly keen on either. Tonight for me will be the most difficult listen as these albums with the exception of Grotesque After The Gramme and Hex Enduction Hour are the ones I listen to least.
By the end of the weekend I will probably be a blithering wreck, or L will have divorced me due to mental cruelty.
I will not inflict more Fall on you but be prepared for a gem or two that I have forgtten about but will hear over the coming couple of days, next week. You have been warned.
Instead here is the latest installment in the Touched By The Hand Of God series. Here is Weatherall's remix of the D---s Compulsion which I got from Discogs this week.
Track deleted due to DMCA take down order, although the manager of the band was unaware of the complaint.
