If hope springs eternal here's proof!!!!!!!!!!,
This review is from: Grotesque - After The Gramme (Audio CD)
The re-release of the deluxe version of "Grotesque" is a non-Fall fans and a avis Fall fans wet dream.The album is culled from their early output.It comes in the original packaging(jazzed up ever so slightly) and the album is full of classics, I'am talking about "New Face In Hell" , "English Scheme" , " The Impressions Of J. Temperence" and "The N.W.R.A." . As well as an album brimming with brilliance you get 5(thats Five) versions of "Rowche Rumble" (Mega-single) and 2 versions of the B-side (Just as Mega) "In My Area". Their is only one problem, a good problem for you first time buyers, once you buy this you'll want to own everything The Fall have produced over the years and they've been a hard-working band which means a lot of albums both studio and live, I'm not telling you how many, see how many you can find. Their still performing today, they have changed line-ups numerous times and their last release was a 5-star release if their ever was one. They tour regularly, even with the enigmatic leader of the band Mark E. Smith in a wheel chair from a recent accident on a U.K. tour, he still went off and toured the U.S.A. until another member of the band suffered with food poisoning. So you have a lot to look forward too, further studio work, more live material both tours and releases on CD. I wish it was me starting all over again.Get the faith, as none other than John Peel stated, "The Fall are how all other bands are to be judged."
