    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 :D

    Been listening to Code:Selfish era today. Bloody wonderful.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    I really got into the half-dozen or so albums that I listened to after his death, listened to them way too much every since. Mostly earlier stuff, and not enough to feel like I know what I am talking about.

    But I did think of this song when a certain long-term poster got banned recently.
