They're a strange group. A whole range of strange. Avante garde even. Lots of weird bits. A massive palette, but life should be like a rich painting. The Fall songs are like thousands of rich paintings. Some of them featuring a curious shade of orange.
It wasn't effected either. You don't have to be strange to be strange.

You don't have to be a died hair punk funk shit-hot fucked up tick-tock pad.

Indeed, and I hope Starsky-Jalfrezi hasn't given up on this project as I for one was enjoying her musings.

10. Lifelong. I just liked them all my life, you know? It shouldn't be a valid reason, but hey, I am clutching at straws and have twenty one more entries to make, without repeating myself, which I think I have already done. There's been some weird connections. I built a shed and used 2x4! One of the locals in my pub, Bill, was always at the bar, imagine the eerie Fall connection when I walked in and Dennis looked at me with a grave expression ans said, "Bill is dead", uncanny! I won't tell you of the connection concerning my brief stint as controller at Marsden Cabs. I ended up in A&E.

11. Raw

I love the unexpected bits, and the shambolicness of the whole shebang. I took a young person to see them, as I thought they might be impressed at how out there I was.

They said, “So the idea is that the live tracks are kind of based on the originals but often bear little resemblance…” I thought this was a really amateurish response, I mean, der! Don't people get live music these days? It's not all Elbow.

Mind you it was slick in parts, in the parts that were not raw, or shambolic, or improvised.

This is me sober, you don't know the meaning of the word drunk. Well, you do, but not my sort of drunk.

12: Intellectual


It goes without saying, you are entering the world of a bizarre, sprawling intellect. I don't get this with any other pop stars. Do you think Donny Osmond has heard of Camus, or Wyndham Lewis, or Blake? No, he has not.

And such a mind makes your own mind keener to inquire .... well, do you like chocolate animals? Are you going to Cary Grant's wedding? What about us?

Clever stuff. I think about it all the time.

13. Same Different

I agree with the “always different/always the same” cliché. What The Fall mainly were was different. We got an experimental drum and bassy like album in Levitate, we veered into cowboy-tinged twangy country, with Cowboy George, metal power with Blindness.

It was always The Fall, but Witch Trials is not Hex and Extricate is not IWS.

Logically then, this entry should be entitled "Different" rather than "Same".

It does irk me when members post illogically, I am right on this and am tempted to edit your post accordingly Starsky-Jalfrezi.

14. Punks

They are undesirable persons, or rotten wood dust, or prossies, MES is none of that, but, he is more rotten wood than kaftans and love beads.

He never said drugs are great, but he did take drugs.

There are hippy drugs .. weed, LSD, and home brew.

There are punk drugs ... speed, amyl, and cider.

LSD makes colours all lovely, the trees are waving lovely branches at you, you think you are an orange, the postman is smiling at you.

Speed makes you chew the sideboard, your Auntie looks like Charles Hawtrey, and she wants you to take her bins out, but, the bin men will KILL YOU. They HATE YOU. It's another eight hours of this before you start itching. Sweating like a pig in a sub zero bedroom. But then you will write Totally Wired, and not Paper Sun.

Donny Osmond's web site reveals that he's very well read and that Albert Camus is one of his favourite authors. Please don't spew out your opinions as fact or at least do some research.

15. References.

Well, he knew his stuff, and read. And probably watched a bit of tele.

"I could go on for ages about references, of course, but by way of example – here’s a selection of people referenced in Fall songs:

Jeffrey Archer. General Custer. Mark Lamarr. Benny Anderson. Arthur Askey. Alan Brazil. William Blake. David Hume. Terry Waite. Patrick Moore. Bishop Abel Muzorewa. Nebuchadnezzar. Sir William Wray. Dave Lee Travis."

What is the connection between all these? Of course they are all part of culture, popular culture and the more high falluting type.

Why didn't he mention Sitting Bull, Mark MyWordz, Benny Hill. Arthur Ashe, Alan Ball. William Defoe. David Hunter. Terry Collier. Pat Cash, another Bishop, Neptune, Sir George Solti, and finally, Peter Powell.

Answer, he could have done, they're the losers.
