“Always different, always the same” John Peel, 2004

In support of their 32nd studio album, ‘New Facts Emerge’ released 28th July 2017 (Cherry Red Records) The Fall have announced their biggest London headline show for several years.

Founded by its only constant member, Mark E. Smith, The Fall formed in Manchester in 1976 and has existed ever since. Musically, there may have been several stylistic changes over the years, but it is often characterised by an abrasive guitar-driven sound and frequent use of repetition, always underpinned by Smith’s distinctive vocals and often cryptic lyrics. The current line-up is as follows: Mark E. Smith (lead vocals); Peter Greenway (guitar, synth, backing vocals); Dave Spurr (bass, Mellotron, backing vocals); Kieron Melling (drums).

The Fall is noted for its prolific output: in addition to the studio albums they have released more than triple that, counting live albums and other compilations. Having trodden his own path for more than 40 years, Mark E Smith remains a unique and captivating performer, his Fall gigs quite unlike any other musical experience - be sure to catch The Fall, fresh of a September US tour (their first for over ten years) at the very peak of their powers.
