English post-punk band The Fall, formed in Manchester in 1976, has existed in some form ever since, and is essentially built around its founder and only constant member Mark E. Smith. Initially associated with the punk movement of the late 1970s, the group's music has gone through several stylistic changes over the years, characterised by an abrasive guitar-driven sound and frequent use of repetition, and is always underpinned by Smith's distinctive vocals and often cryptic lyrics. The band, noted for its prolific output has, as of February 2016, released over thirty-one studio albums, and more than triple that if you are counting live albums and other releases.
This is the first collection of all the Fall singles, which were recorded across a multitude of labels: Step Forward, Rough Trade, Kamera, Beggars Banquet, Cog Sinister, Permanent, Artful and Action. Cherry Red have lovingly compiled them here in a 7CD Box Set with a full illustrated discography by renowned Fall expert Conway Paton.
Also available as an edited 3CD Box Set featuring all of the A-Sides.
