Great article, thank you for the link.
I dont know why but that track has made me imagine him calling bingo in hell.
Statement from his sisters here.
Lung and kidney cancer, poor bloke. Jesus.
This was the last time I saw them. Ah fuck I'm missing the old bastard.
MES No sellout.
Suspected something like.
Was playing various Fall songs earlier and my lad said "What's THAT?" so I told him and he was astonished there was an English singer who sang in his own accent
Let's hope for a Bingomaster's Breakout
Been listening to Code:Selfish era today. Bloody wonderful.
"This is the spring without end.
This is the summer of malcontent.
This is the winter of your mind."
I am still learning about the prolific output of the Fall and was not even aware of that when I made my bingo comment - will check it out, cheers.
To be fair, pick any two random words and it's statistically more likely to be a Fall song than not.
Best top ever btw
Been doing two Fall albums a week since he died. Lots of amazing catching up. “Shift-Work” is the only one i’ve not got on with so far. (And i’ve got mates who swear by it so will check it out some more).
Different fall. It's superb.
Great line about the evil of the phone on easter sunday in garden.
I'm sure there was a C&A line of jumpers like that. Great dishevelled Perry Boy look in the video - fringe & Peter Werth-style stripe.
Never could tell if it was accidental or helped - given he appeared in pixie boots and full length barbour style mac at same time. All came together in that one though.
Pixie boots & tucker boots - I'd forgotten about them. I reckon accidental as a thing, just normative locally. That proto-casual look, now categorised & fetishised, was the default at the time & place - if you went to the barbers, that was the cut you got, & the rest was basically school uniform, wasn't it - farah slacks, black adidas or grey slip ons (with the backs trod down) & a jumper. I asked one of the old barbers round here about The Perry - he reckoned it was originally 'The Perry Como', & as it grew out, the fringe became a flick, later exaggerated & layered.
