The Fall - Singles 1978-2016 (2017)


The Fall
Singles 1978-2016 7CD box set
(2017)

This is the first collection of all The Fall singles recorded across a multitude of labels: Step Forward, Rough Trade, Kamera, Beggars Banquet, Cog Sinister, Permanent, Artful, Action Oh and Cherry Red. We got the lot! Lovingly compiled here in a 7-CD box set with a full illustrated discography by renowned Fall expert Conway Paton.
Joining the ranks of the six-disc "The Complete Peel Sessions 1978-2004" and the five-disc "The Fall Box Set", "Singles 1978-2016" is another ambitious repackaging of the seemingly endless catalog of Mancunian post-punk institution The Fall, collecting seven CDs' worth of tracks from their countless singles and EPs. The first three discs (also released separately as "A-Sides 1978-2016") present the A-sides in order, from "Bingo-Master" (which was actually the second track from the groupćs 1978 debut EP, "Bingo-Master's Break-Out!") to 2016's "Wise Ol’ Man".
The remaining four discs focus on B-sides, again in chronological order. These include plenty of tracks that are entirely crucial to the band's oeuvre, including "Repetition" and "No Bulbs" - considering how many times these songs have been anthologized before, it might be easy to forget that they initially appeared as B-sides. It also reveals that not every single B-side is present on this set - plenty of remixes, alternate versions, live takes, and non-album cuts are omitted, particularly from the EPs and multi-format releases. Also, 1981's "Slates" 10" is apparently considered an LP rather than an EP, and is unrepresented.
Including everything would have required at least ten discs, and while most hardcore fans would probably prefer it this way, what's most important is that nearly everything here is brilliant. Highly recommended for anyone with the urge to plunge deeper into The Fall's tremendous body of work.

The Lurkers - High Velocity 7''


The Lurkers
High Velocity 7'' vinyl
(07.12.2017)

1. High Velocity (vocal Diane Cox)
2. White Noise And Feedback (vocal Pete Stride)
3. One Butterfly (vocal Pete Stride)


Istorija pop-muzike je prepuna svađa između bivših članova oko toga ko ima pravo na korišćenje naziva benda, i to godinama nakon rasturanja ekipe. U najavi je nova bura u tom lavoru: Lurkersi protiv Lurkersa.
Trojica članova originalne postave The Lurkers - Pete Stride, Pete 'Manic Esso' Hynes i Nigel Moore - pod imenom God's Lonely Men su 2010. izdali album "Chemical Landside", zatim su to skratili na GLM pa se potom preimenovali u The Lurkers GLM i 2016. objavili album "The Future's Calling". Sada su rešili da objave singl "High Velocity" pod imenom The Lurkers, a naslovnu numeru je otpevala gošća Diane Cox (The Featherz). Osim ovog singla, trenutno nemaju nikakvih planova za turneju.
Kako stoje stvari, namera im je da iskoriste objavljivanje petostruke CD-kompilacije snimaka The Lurkers iz perioda 1977-1980, koju je objavila njihova tadašnja izdavačka kuća Beggars Banquet (The Lurkers su bili prvi punk bend koji je sa njima potpisao ugovor). Kako kažu, želja im je da "nakon 40 godina pokažu da su i dalje ponos Fulhama i Ickenhama i da još uvek mogu da snime dobru ploču". Na osnovu naslovne numere ovog singla, može se reći da su u pravu. "High Velocity" je standardna pop-punk pesma, na koju se nadovezuju ostale dve sa B-strane - baš onakve, kakve smo navikli da čujemo od The Lurkers


Sve to najverovatnije neće izaći na dobro, ako se nešto pita preostali član originalne postave Arturo Bassick koji koristi ime The Lurkers još od 1987. On i Esso su i dalje dobri ortaci, a pitanje je koliki bi bili i advokatski troškovi, ukoliko se "Rat Lurkersa" nastavi na sudu - umesto na stejdžu, gde bi to bilo na obostranu korist Vrebača i njihovih fanova.
Videćemo...
