About The Fall:
The Fall was an English post-punk band formed in 1976 in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, England. The band was founded by its lead singer, Mark E Smith, who was the only constant member of the group throughout its 41-year existence. Smith was known for his acerbic wit and unconventional songwriting, and he often clashed with his bandmates and industry figures.
The band's early releases were characterized by a raw, lo-fi sound and Smith's idiosyncratic lyrics, which often dealt with mundane subjects and everyday life in working-class England. The band's first album, "Live at the Witch Trials," was released in 1979 on the independent label Step-Forward Records.
Over the years, The Fall underwent numerous line-up changes, with Smith firing and hiring band members at will. Despite this instability, the band released over 30 studio albums and a number of EPs, live albums, and compilations. Some of their most critically acclaimed albums include "Hex Enduction Hour" (1982), "This Nation's Saving Grace" (1985), and "The Infotainment Scan" (1993).
Smith's abrasive personality and uncompromising artistic vision often made him difficult to work with, and he was known for berating his bandmates and audiences alike. Despite this, The Fall gained a cult following and influenced countless musicians in the post-punk, indie, and alternative rock scenes.
In January 2018, Smith died at the age of 60, bringing an end to The Fall's long and storied career. Despite the band's tumultuous history, their legacy lives on as one of the most distinctive and uncompromising groups in the history of British rock music.
