/ The Fall (The Band)
They were possibly at their weirdest when Smith actually sang! I prefer him barking and yelping.
Superb. I loved them when they had two drummers, really beefed up their live sound. Typically uncompromising to play Smile! on their 1st national tv appearance.
My take on it is that even though MES was clear that Peels adulation wasn't essential for the Fall and he'd never reciprocate, they still took the opportunity to kick ass as a mark of respect. He even dressed up in a suit and looked slightly raffish. Brix's influence 🙂.
Thanks for posting, I'd forgotten how good Smile was.
Lake District-based runner Kim Collison has set a new speed record on the Bob Graham Round in winter. Kim completed the round in just 15 hours 47 minutes, knocking a big chunk from the previous fastest winter time of 18:18 set by Jim Mann in 2013.
