Hmmm years ago I tried trawling through a whole load of 'Fall' records I was given, and, well... didn't get very far....I feel I ought to give them another go, plenty of my Manchester cohort were 'fans'.
A quick wiki search threw up this description of Mark's err singing which made me smile;

"a unique, one-note delivery somewhere between amphetamine-spiked rant and alcohol-addled yarn"

Just heard 'Totally Wired' on the radio....

Very moving tribute by Brix Smith on Mark Radcliffe's programme ( "He was so incredibly brilliant" ) -

Great comments also from Stewart Lee :

Fall records going up in price - currently on a small buying spree before it's too late.
Been listening to Youtube clips of the tracks on 'Dragnet' and realised I should have had this one years ago - one of the best - need it immediately !

I know it's a minority interest, but there are a couple of lurkers reading this , I believe.
