The New Stability of The Fall

Last Friday, I was the guest presenter on Ed Pinsent’s Sound Projector radio show on Resonance FM. This week’s theme was the music of The Fall, and specifically the music of its current and longest lasting incarnation.  Podcast and playlist here.

The show included a featurette on singer Mark E Smith’s adaptations of ‘The Spider and The Fly’, a track by The Monocles which is familiar to fans of ’60s garage music thanks to the compilation Pebbles volume 3: The Acid Gallery.  It turns out The Monocles were a real band, not a studio invention: find out more this interview with one of the members.
