The Fall - Slates




The next two post are 10" records. This first is a cracker from The Fall. It says it's published in 1981 by the sound is like an earlier Fall. My claim to fame here is that I introduced the word "slag" to my east of England comprehensive school. I used it in a thoroughly offensive, but not meaning to be sexist way to describe a slutty girl. Another word of mine is "scrunkled" to mean all wrinkled up. E.G. if you don't hang you clothes up properly they get all scrunkled. Anyway back to the music http://rapidshare.com/files/67442647/Fall-Slates.rar

I heard "Slates" on the late great John Peel show back in 1981.
I had "Dragnet" in 1979,but found it far too primitive and sold it a few months later. This was a revelation; a raging seething racket. Like The Stooges and The Velvet Underground, what made it so compelling was the sheer hosility of the music. I was given a copy of the ten inch record which I have still got,and along with The Birthday Party's "Release The Bats" still can make your speakers bleed nearly thirty years later.
Mark.E.Smith has made many fine songs since then,but he has never matched this track EVER. Why should he ?
When The Strokes deliver something like this, come back and let me know....
