When is the next review please? :shrug:

Sorry you can't conceive Snippy, and my deepest apologies for not pointing out the bleeding obvious in my review. I don't disagree that NP was the best track, but CD was my favourite. :grin:

I'll try and post session 4 tomorrow, later tonight if I get time, but all my sheep escaped and I've been up and down the valley all day herding the buggers in. :(

Session Four - March 1981

Image

Just a six month gap since the majestic Session Three, Peel was by now playing Fall product virtually nightly.

MES
Marc Riley - Guitar
Craig Scanlon - Guitar
Steve Hanley - Bass
Paul Hanley - Drums
Dave Tucker - Clarinet

Session Three was a difficult act to follow, but The Fall in full flow was still apparent. This session though included a couple of "works in progress". First up 'Middle Mass' was a pretty straight run through of the opening track on the soon to be released Slates EP (LP? - who knows, who cares). 'Lie Dream Of A Casino Soul' was not released till next November when was issued as a single, but here was showcased as a much faster, somewhat lighter song. And then 'Hip Priest', which became an MES anthem a full year later on the Hex Enduction Hour LP. Neither of these two were perfect, but interesting to hear them in their embryonic forms. Last up 'C'n'C Hassle Schmuck' - begins as an updated version of the Grotesque song, and is most promising too, before stopping abruptly as MES announces Arthur Askey has been shot. This leads us into a peculiar but thoroughly entertaining re-hash of the Coast To Coast song that was high in the hit parade at the time. You can imagine Peel coming out with something dry like "Well that was exceptional."


I think we'll have some of that. :)

Peel actually came out with something like, " Cover versions now is it? Very clever!" :huh:

Much as I admire Steve70nearly's work here, reading between the lines I suspect he doesn't care for early Fall much and sees it as punk or early new wave. This is because he didn't join the fold from day one when Dave the drummer was onboard, and thus only people like me can appreciate The Fall as a gruppe who were totally un-punk and doing their own thing.

Quite right AH, I was into The Fall when MES was still working the docks. It's only us who were there from the beginning that know all about The Fall. These cunts like Steve70nearly who were still at primary school at the time, and use that as an excuse, should have listened up or fucked off. :radged:

Keep up the good work though Steve. :)

I should really warn Mr. Martial for excessive profanity, but I'm not really interested in this particular angle of debate as punk meant nothing to me.

I think Mr Martial knows whereof he speaks. Don't walk on thin ice if you don't have to. :)

Session Five - August 1981

Image

With only a couple of months passing since the last session, the group was now a firm Peel favourite.

MES
Marc Riley - Guitar
Craig Scanlon - Guitar
Steve Hanley - Bass
Paul Hanley - Drums

The session comprised Deer Park, Look, Know, Winter, and Who Makes The Nazis? The line up was fairly constant at this point which history shows would not last. Unfortunately There's no record of what else was played on the show but only The Fall seem to have been in session that night. All the tracks got official releases in 1982 Look,Know as a single and the rest appeared on Hex Enduction Hour. The group continue the highs of the previous two sessions and it's difficult to pick a favourite out of these.

If I had to choose one it would be Winter, but sod it, here's the lot:

If my findings are correct, other artists that evening included Adam & The Ants, Pigbag, The Creatures, The Associates, Scientist, Max Romeo and Rolf Harris.

This is great stuff as ever Steve70nearly, I agree Winter should be the winner here, but there's a great little drum flourish from young Paul Hanley in Deer Park. :clap:

No one seems to like this on the Twitter link. :(

I've just about finished Session 6, quite a challenging one to write due to the line up changes.

Also it's been difficult due to a hell of a week spent dipping my sheep, but Karl Burns and Kay Carroll have been immensely helpful. :clap:

I'll try and get it up this weekend Amber (I tried today but Rosie slipped my grasp and ran off down the valley).

Meanwhile why not start a six page discussion on punk and whether or not The Fall were part of that genre? It'll take your mind off things.

Have a listen to Like To Blow or In The Park , that sort of thing. :)

Session Six - March 1983

Image

MES
Steve Hanley - Bass
Craig Scanlon - Guitar
Paul Hanley - Drums
Karl Burns - Drums

18 months on from the last, and thus omitting a Room To Live session, times had changed. Marc Riley was out after a bitter bust up, back in was Karl Burns, so a single guitar but two drums - a new Fall sound. All the songs here were from the next LP 'Perverted By Language', still a few months and a new wife away. Smile, Garden, Hexen Definitive-Strife Knot and Eat Y'self Fitter were not far off what would be the finished product, but for me Garden edges the rest as being that little bit more upbeat and less cold than the album versions. Cold is not a bad thing of course (I've been up the Rhonda remember), the entire session and album were absolutely brilliant. Peel fainted over Eat Y'self Fitter allegedly. :D

Thank you Amber, I'm sure you'll be panting like a ewe in labour by session 7. :)

If this is a reference to the Welsh valley, it's Rhondda. I will not have Wales misrepresented on my Forum.

Steve70nearly warned for inaccurate Welsh spelling.

Steve70nearly, you forgot to mention the other acts on that night's Peel show, namely Ivor Cutler (also in session), The Spinners, The Upsetters, Orchestre Super Mazembe and, erm, Divine.

Divine was very good wasn't she? He? :)
