Another in Castle/Sanctuary’s programme of Fall reissues, this was the lowest of lo-fi before lo-fi was invented. It's uncompromising, and utterly unique. It starts with Mark E Smith’s introduction/insulting on the first track and then dives headlong into rough renditions of songs that are perpetually on the verge of crumbling apart. Featuring live recordings from a number of non glossy venues, Smith’s hectoring, squawking vocals somehow cut through ragged insistent guitars and no frills drumming. You might think that remastering an album such as this is a somewhat redundant exercise but I think it does add something. This album always had a primacy and that has not been diluted. To add to the value you also get the John Peel BBC session from September 1980. And I know there’s a perversity about discussing packaging on a Fall record but this is nice, featuring informative sleeve notes and scans/facsimiles of music press articles from the likes of Dave McCullough (Sounds). This was the first Fall record I ever bought and it took me ages to get to grips with it. At that time of its initial release I was not yet familiar with Fall influences such as Captain Beefheart, Can, and the Groundhogs, so this sounded completely alien to me. Still sounds pretty strange but it's highly recommended. Maybe not the best introduction to the Fall but an integral part of their catalogue nevertheless.

New Puritan on the Peel session is the best Peel session track ever - not bad when you consider that there have been 96 tracks on Peel sessions over the years. New Puritan on the album is as bizarre as it gets even by The Fall's standards, recorded in a garage allegedly, on a £15 cassette recorder from Dixons bought in 1972 apparently!
Despite there being about 50 live albums on the market and at least 750 live bootlegs of one description or another floating about, you will still never find a version of Cary Grant's Wedding or No Xmas For John Quays as great as these! What makes the album is that the tracks are from Preston Polytechnic, Rotters Disco in Doncaster, Prestwich Hospital Social Club and Bradford Palm Cove NOT a Wembley Stadium or a G-MEX Arena!
This album is world class for all the right reasons. The only deduction of a star would be that this includes only the second 'half' of the marathon Spectre Versus Rector, however, this is quickly reinstated when the sheer magnificance of this live version from February 1980, is fully appreciated. The greatest thing about this album is that if you love it, everyone else will hate it! 5 stars. 10/10. First Class. Buy it now.

very grating and challenging live album of early Fall magick.
With its grubby sound and unadourned cover this is the anti-70s live rock(?)album. Total DIY. The band is very confrontational here and Mark has many great lines between songs, baiting the crowd who must have been either spellbound or completley bemused. the opening lines totally crack me up "the difference between you and us is that we have brainsss!"
of the early, early stuff this is maybe my favorite coming close to Dragnet. the songs from that album i think sound better here- although i love the Dragnet version of Spectre. Rowche Rumble is probably my favorite on here with its insane vocal squeeks and insistant looping groove.
just about all the tracks here are good but i find it hard to get through the whole album on one sitting. Its just very noisey although that is part of the appeal i guess. the delivery is what counts!
This is almost as raw as The Residents' 3rd Reich and Roll- maybe more so. so be warned before you buy!

Great early live album and fine example of a Fall performance from this era.The Fall are one of the most consistantly good bands,album wise,since their debut in 1979.If you like The Fall,this is a good purchase.Be warned this is a band which you will love or loathe.Vinyl Junkie.
