But if by definition of normal you mean a person who has a jaundiced view of life and prefers his or her music to be at least mildly challenging—if not downright annoying Mr. Pharmacist - The Fall - 458489 A Sides its insistence upon being heard as foreground noise rather than background buzz and hum—there are plenty of Fall records that are must-owns.

The Fall recipe of songwriting is simple. First, hand village crank Mark E. Smith a microphone. Oh, yes. First, hand a microphone to the irritable Mr. Smith, who is both a true individualist and misanthropist. And second, let him spew great gouts of indecipherable poetry and hurl strange incantations over one form of droning caterwaul or another. This homemade recipe has been working since the late s, and continues to work to this very day.

Because Mark E. Smith is holding a grudge, and that grudge is against society. Or life. Or whatever. That said, during the era of Brix Smith—Mark Electrolux - Various - 2 Years Rumpfunk Netlabel. Which is not to say that the songs on A-Sides make for easy listening. And it freaks me out. So forget what Christgau said.

  2. Y'know, Mark, Brix wasn't so bad. This 'popular' version of the Fall was still interesting in its popish, Fallish way.
