THE FALL, Grotesque, LP

The start of The Fall’s incredible unique 80’s run. The added singles only improve. Not necessarily an easy album, but no Fall album is, and I’m sure was quite hard to process at the time. This is when Mark E. Smith fully realized what he wanted to attempt to achieve with The Fall. From 1980’s Grotesque to 1985’s This Nation’s Savings Grace, there is an overflowing of ideas when you add the singles and EPs, Smith was obsessed with rushing creation without restraint. In hindsight, you can see how this fits in the “indie” rock timeline, and is shockingly good essential British post punk listening. Should inspire and has inspired young non mainstream rock bands for years and into the future, even if indirectly.
