"If You're Gonna Play It Out Of Tune, Play It Out Of Tune Properly" pt 8

Right, I think that Ctel has had a long enough respite from the joyous racket that is The Fall, the greatest band in the world!

Time to get back to the series that introduces you to the delights of  Mark E Smith and the gruppe's interpretations of other peoples tunes. No Mr H, not Crawfish, to my knowledge the band have never covered this, sadly.

Today's post finds the Fall covering Beatle Bones 'N' Smokin' Stones,  a Captain Beefheart song for their twentieth Peel session broadcast 0n 18/08 96. The original was included on the 1968 album Strictly Blue.

You may be right Ctel. Sometimes I do wonder if it really is pish like most people think and then I pull myself together and banish such heritcal thougts with a bit of self flagellation.
