Description: The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, in 1976. With an ever-changing line up, the group essentially consists of its founder and only constant member, Mark E. Smith, who has said "If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's [the] Fall". First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the band's music has evolved through numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's membership. The Fall's music is characterised by repetition and an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Ste ... (more)

I love his voice (54 person items)

"Mark E Smith To be a fan of The Fall, you have to love his voice...it's the only constant since the rest of the line-up changes on a regular basis. Song for you to hear: Mountain Energei"

"Mark E. Smith is a mad genius, and with every line-up that's played with him as The Fall he's made tons of amazing songs.
