5.0 out of 5 stars Back on Rough Trade one last time... 3 Jan 2006
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
Ludd Gang = "I hate the guts of Shakin' Stevens 4 what he has done/the massacre of blue xmas - on him I'd like to land one on!
'Perverted by Language' is one of the many very good Fall-albums, and a key one at that - coming on the heels of the patchy 'Room to Live' (also 1983) and the exit of Marc Riley/the arrival of Brix Smith. The ever present MES is joined by long-time accomplices Craig Scanlon & Steve Hanley alongside Paul Hanley (drums, electronics) and Karl Burns (drums, bass) - who has been a member of the Fall in the 70s, 80s and 90s. A glutton for punishment? 'Perverted by Language' saw the Fall briefly return to Rough Trade after the collapse of Kamera (where they recorded 'Hex Enduction Hour' & 'Room 2 Liv') - MES allegedly taking the band to Beggars Banquet when the Smiths appeared on the Rough Trade scene. The epic-style of 'And This Day', 'Hip Priest' & 'Winter' is generally the template for the eight-track LP - songs like 'Garden', 'Tempo House' & 'Hexen Definitive/Strike Knot' finding the Fall at their most Krautrock - though don't worry, they still sound very much like the Fall! Opener 'Eat Y'Self Fitter' remains a highlight, and is the Fall-song the later great John Peel chose for his Desert Island Discs! A wonderful drum-dominated dirge MES is one fine form lyrically (isn't he always?) - "went down the town - the HM-club...an 'Easy Rider' coup!" - one of Smith's most comic lyrics, backed up by sinister-chants...

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Version 3 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
With the original tracklisting finally restored, remixed, with added singles, live versions, and the Fall's longest ever Peel session, this can definitely be called the definitive version.
PBL is well known for having the longest average time for each song. But this set is definitely not self-indulgent or improvisation-led. Songs such as Garden (the Peel session version especially) and Tempo House completely warrant their extensive length, and the band's playing is tight throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars PBL to its friends 20 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
PBL; the introduction to the Fall that changed my life.
No wonder, the Great God Pan is on the rampage here!
Less accessible than most Fall albums, it reveals levels decades later.
This is one for keeps, a lifetime of listening pleasure.
What's a computer???
