This has always been a sticker for me.  No idea why.  One of the first albums I bought, and I had no idea what I would get.

Thinking about it I've still got no idea what I did get!

This has it all. Peel introducing the Fall on the Tube, then on they swagger and perform ‘Smile’ in a magisterial manner. They, he, were, was peerless.

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.
