Brian Turner's avatar View Brian Turner's profile Options

Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Options April 21, 2015: THE FALL: Part 1 of 2 Special w/ live recordings, Interview with STEPHEN HANLEY plus SPECTRE FOLK live in studio

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments


(pic BT's kitchen) First Part of a two week special: today's entire three hours is dedicated to the exhuming of some stellar live tapes in Brian's collection from The Fall, mainly soundboard and FM broadcasts from mostly of the '78 to '96 era. As a bonus, three of the band's biggest instrumental anchors of that period, ex-guitarist Marc Riley (1978-83, and now a well-beloved BBC Radio6 DJ), post-Riley guitarist Brix Smith Start (1983-89) and ex-bassist Stephen Hanley (1979-98) speak to WFMU on life inside of and outside of the band; in fact Hanley has recently released a memoir called The Big Midweek. This week's show features Hanley, and as a double bonus, we get a live set in the WFMU studio of Fall covers courtesy of Spectre Folk (featuring members of Magik Markers, Sonic Youth, Pavement, Nation of Ulysses and Tall Firs). Next week, more live recordings and extended chats with Riley and Brix. Mark E. Smith's current lineup of The Fall releases an album, his 31st, on May 25th called Sub-Lingual Tablet.

I remember hearing this on a tape a fellow WCBN DJ was playing as we drove back from Chicago after seeing Neubaten in '85.

this EP is still great. I don't like this Nation's Saving Grace much.

when I can't listen to music, I can still listen to the Fall and Beefheart.

Jon Stewart announced that his last Daily Show will be August 6. I think I'll kind of miss him. For a bit, anyway.

Come on Brian, tee them up Damo from the hamburg show too, greatest 10 mins in the Falls live output _ ever ;)

Thanks BT, great show! Have a good night everyone!

I always assumed "Paranoid Man in Cheap Sh*t Room" was a take on "Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room".

@Stuie: Yup! And given the size of their catalog there are probably other ones...

I'll sort you out Brian, then let you decide

Oh, man, I was listening to this John Peel show when it went out live (I can remember that sneering intro to "Race With the Devil" and everything, like it was yesterday"!) I'm sure I taped this off the radio - used to get all the Fall Peel sessions - no idea where those tapes ended up. Thanks for the memory, Brian!

Nice touch with John Peel there

Whenever I hear Peel's voice, I revert to the Yorkshire accent. "He were luvly, that John Peel..."

Is that crazy Fall fans website still around? It must be...

@Cheri Pi - you mean thefall.org (formerly visi.com/fall)? I'm afraid it is.

great interview, but tracks played a bit predictable

the version of ARMS CONTROL POSEUR from john peels 50th bday should have been aired!!!

While Spectre Folk do a great job, they do not have the dynamism of The Fall--that is chemistry, which is absolutely amazing.

Thank jeebus for the magic of archives.
GOD BLESS THE FALL.
