The Fall - 29 albums, 29 tracks

The new album by The Fall, _Ersatz G.B._, their 29th (!), is due out shortly. It's another slab of krautrock-abilly weirdness from Mark E Smith and his current line-up, their 3rd excellent album together. In honor of one of my favorite bands I dedicated the entire show to reviewing one track from each album. Of course, this excludes singles like "The Man Whose Head Expanded" or incredible Peel session versions but 29 tracks from 29 albums fit just right. While The Fall is a decidedly acquired taste, this set shows the range of Mark E Smith's vision and musical flexibility and just might help you get over any reservations.
