They don’t come much more strange than the Fall. I’ve heard Mark sing half a concert while lying on a sofa in the dressing room. I’ve seen him singing behind the speakers with just the back of his head visible. He accosts his musicians, detunes instruments and generally disrupts. He is largely indecipherable. Yet the Fall have produced a body of work that is incredible. There is a Beefheart influence and a pile of riffs. The words are interesting. I don’t know where it’s coming from but it sure connects.
