Limited Edition, Black and White Splatter Vinyl + Replica Rowche Rumble 7"
The Fall’s second studio album, reissued as a 3CD clamshell box-set (Also available as a limited splatter vinyl LP with 7” single replica of their ‘Rowche Rumble’ single). Founded by its only constant member, Mark E. Smith, The Fall formed in Manchester in 1976 and were one of the most prominent post-punk groups in the world.
Musically, there may have been several stylistic changes over the years, but it was often characterised by an abrasive guitar-driven sound and frequent use of repetition, always underpinned by Smith's distinctive vocals
and often cryptic lyrics. “They are always different; they are always the same...” John Peel “Dragnet” is the second studio album – released 26th October 1979 - these editions celebrate the fortieth anniversary of this seminal album. Originally released through record label Step-Forward, it predicated 2 major factors in the group’s career – high productivity and high group turnover.
