Product Description

BBC Review

You don’t last as long as The Fall have without learning a few things. Things like how many times you have to play the same riff before it becomes invincible, and how long you have to spend barking at people before they start treating you like a hero. Mark E. Smith is 371 in dog years. He has been barking forever, and, as The Fall enter their 34th year with their 28th studio album, a hero many times over: looping in and out of critical approval as endlessly as the snarling, nagging guitars that have underpinned his scornful non-sequiturs for decades.

Your Future Our Clutter retains both the scorn (just look at that title) and the repetition that have characterised Smith’s time on Earth, but this latest record also goes some way to proving that, while he may be an old dog with a pickled onion for a head, Mark E. Smith and The Fall are still capable of learning the odd new trick. Find proof as Smith becomes Prestwich’s own Jim Morrison on Chino, or in the drones that glue the record together.

Not that there’s anything wrong with odd, old tricks – opener O.F.Y.C. Showcase sees Smith’s familiar, vaguely incomprehensible drawl giving way to declarative vocals, guitar repetitions, go-steady drums and predatory bass loom. Bury Pts. 1 + 3 compounds the sense that this is vintage Fall by doing that old, Fall thing of turning petty complaints into strange ceremonies – “I’m not from Bury” is the gripe this time.

Complaints light up Your Future Our Clutter. Sometimes they’re direct: as on final track Weather Report 2 which contains a number of brilliantly wry lines – “Nobody has ever called me Sir in my entire life”; “Forget about Jacksons, what about Saxons”; and “You don’t deserve rock n’ roll” chief among them.

But perhaps this album’s most brilliant moment – it’s most thrilling and least explicit complaint – belongs to Cowboy George. Setting off in a Bo Diddley-esque, guitar matador shuffle, it’s the completely absurd, incongruous sampling of Daft Punk that really epitomises what The Fall have always been about – Smith seemed to realise very early on that time has its own destiny and, as such, more important things to worry about than pop music. Hipsters, slaves to the day, be damned – The Fall will abide: they have broken out of time, and exist slightly away from the rest of us. They are, as Smith proclaims on Mexico Wax Solvent, “Invincible”. --Kev Kharas

4.0 out of 5 stars Always different... 20 April 2010
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
It's a great album, by the way: 'Bury' is also pretty special, with a muddy live recording(?) bursting into a studio version of the same song. 'Slippy Floor' has an amazing, infinitely ascending riff. 'Funnel of Love' is a cover of the Wanda Jackson song. 'Cowboy George' is like a Western theme with a twist. 'Weather Report 2' is probably the highlight and is pretty much unlike anything else The Fall have done - somehow genuinely moving and chilling at the same time.

The vinyl-only tracks are pretty good. '986 Generator' is a sort of low-fi bluesy thing. 'Get A Summer Song Goin'' (was there ever a less Fall-like title?) is a sort of stomping glam anthem.

Long, heavy songs that feel really powerful. One of The Fall's best in recent years.

4.0 out of 5 stars "You don't deserve rock 'n' roll" 15 April 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's a great album, by the way: 'Bury' is also pretty special, with a muddy live recording(?) bursting into a studio version of the same song. Hypnotic. Good lyrics. 'Slippy Floor' has an amazing, infinitely ascending riff and potent, sharp vocals. 'Funnel of Love' is a cover of the Wanda Jackson song. 'Cowboy George' is like a Western theme with a twist, which then mutates into something very weird. 'Weather Report 2' is probably the highlight and is pretty much unlike anything else The Fall have done. Again, the first part of the track transmutes into a surprising second part that is somehow genuinely moving and chilling at the same time. 'You don't deserve rock 'n' roll,' whispers Mark E. Smith.

These long, heavy songs feel really powerful and make up one of The Fall's best (and most cohesive) albums in recent years.

The vinyl version has two extra tracks: '986 Generator' and 'Get A Summer Song Goin''. Both are pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars How does he do it? 15 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
It ceases to amaze me how this man does it. I went to see The Fall last year at Koko on April the 1st. He sat in his wheelchair banging out '50 year old man' and I thought this is it. It doesn't get any better. But it has. YFOC has gone back to his most cantankerous period banging out perfect loud tracks which don't bore you for one second. I love tracks by the fall that push the 5 minute boundaries and there plenty of them to choose from. If I have any criticism it would be the cover track Funnel of Love that let's it down. I still can't understand why MES wants to visit such songs when he has more of his own up his sleeve. It would be good if Amazon could put the extra vinyl tracks on MP3 for those of us who have give up the ghost on plastic discs. I have followed The Fall throughout and this is most definitely top 3 material. It's hard to recommend tracks or albums with such a vast catalogue as all Fallophiles would argue/debate for hours. Track wise, the opening number, Bury, Hot Cake and Slippy Floor are immense classic Fall. As for albums, where do you start? Depends what mood you're in...but if you are starting out, get the peel sessions for a compact history at a cheap price. It shows the genius and the not so clever all in one box. Mark, you're a genius. See you in Liverpool on the 19th!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back with a vengeance! 28 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
So yes the Fall are back and in my humble opinion this is quite possibly one of their best albums of their career let alone in recent times. The music is amazingly good and as has been described before bone rattling and heavy. It seems Mark E Smith is going down the Tom Waits route in the sense that the older he gets the better he gets. The lyrics are very good as well (although perhaps not as good as the early stuff) and lines such as, "you don't deserve rock n roll" sum it up very nicely. You can often make your own interpretation of Mr Smith's lyrics but i myself see it as a direct dig at alot of the so called music which is out now and has been coming out since the beginning of The Falls brilliant career. So yeah in that respect i'm giving it five stars as it is better then any young band about nowadays. For example if a band came out with this as they're debut it would be lauded as the greatest debut in years, however as its the Fall it probably won't get anywhere. Which makes me sick but their you go. If it doesn't win the Mercury Prize, well whats the point in awards?!?! The best album of the year and last couple of years hands down.

Standout tracks - Bury Parts 1 + 3, Mexixo Wax Solvent, Weather Report 2, Chino.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good Fall album 8 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have been a huge Fall fan for over 20 years but am quite prepeared to admit that not all Fall albums are great (or even good sometimes). This is a great Fall album. Loud, aggressive and fast in all the right ways this continues the recent run of great albums.
Buy it now - you will not regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fall-ing In Love Again 6 May 2010
By Pensato
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having recently read Simon Ford's book 'Hip Priest' (ending the tale in 2003) I was intrigued to hear the Fall album not having bought anything by them since 'The Unutterable' in 2000(?) except the Peel Sessions boxset. Pleased to report it's a fantastic album - Mexico Wax Solvent, Hot Cake and Weather Report 2 being outstanding tracks. This does suggest that a bit of back cataloguing is now required ....

5.0 out of 5 stars worm, worm WORMwormwormworm 12 May 2010
By John A
Format:Audio CD
Quite different to the last album (also one of their best) - these songs have less of the comic grumpy-old-man and more of a sense of wonder. Their is still a lot of humour here, but after Imperial Wax Solvent I didn't expect the singing to as pure and full of emotion as this; the music is inventive and powerful. The reviewer of this album in the M.E.N. was a least honest enough to admit that he didn't really get it and that that he thought this was pretty extreme stuff for hardened fans only; I completely disagree - this is bound to intrigue people and draw them in. For me Mexico Wax Solvent and Weather Report 2 are the stand-out tracks, but this an album without a bad track. If you have this album already and are looking other recommended Fall albums I would suggest The Unutterable, The Light User Syndrome, The Wonderful & Frightening World of the Fall, Imperial Wax Solvent and Hex Enduction Hour- all of these are five star from beginning to end; also the live album A Part of America Therein which has some hard-hitting rants and a beautiful version of "Winter".
