Mark E. Smith's The Fall return

A couple of years on from The Fall's last gig at the Pavilion in 2008, and Britain's most distinctive band is back. Still going strong after thirty years this seminal band remain a force to be reckoned with in the British music scene.

Often characterised by their abrasive guitar sound and Smith's distinctive vocals, his lyrics have been described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy”.

The band have a prolific output, releasing 28 studio albums, and more than triple that if you count live and other releases. Although they may never have achieved widespread public success beyond a handful of minor hit singles, they maintain a strong, and ever growing, cult following.
Mark E Smith and The Fall have been an acknowledged influence on many other big names in music, including The Smiths, The Happy Mondays, Nirvana and Franz Ferdinand.
