Bandgeschichte

"The Fall – Always different, always the same" pflegte John Peel zu sagen, wenn es um seine Lieblingsband ging. Jede ihrer rund 150 Veröffentlichungen besitzt einerseits den unique scheppernden und patchworkartig disharmonischen Fall-Sound, stark geprägt von den nöligen Deklamationen des Bandmasterminds und Salonsozialisten Mark E. Smith. Dennoch zeichnet sich jedes Fall-Album trotz Stiltreue auch durch einen speziellen Charakter aus und stellt eine Weiterentwicklung dar. Bei mittlerweile 25 Studioalben in 29 Jahren haben The Fall einen sehr langfristigen und gewagter Masterplan beschritten. Unbekannt ist, ob die Band in der Übersetzung als Fall oder Herbst verstanden werden will.
