Ersatz-Unutterable-Imperial-etc.



  
This is my own special compilation in tribute to the late great Mark E Smith who sadly died a few days ago. I imagine most old Fall fans, on hearing of his passing, will listen to their earlier albums, but I've been a dedicated fan for 35+ years and I decided to concentrate on some of my favourite songs since the turn of the century. Maybe much of their later work wasn't of the high standard of those early days, many dismiss anything they recorded after the 1980s, but for me there was always at least 3 or 4 excellent songs on (almost) every studio album they released. I hope you all enjoy this collection of songs, and sink a beer or two in memory of the genius that was Mark Edward Smith.

  1. I Wake Up in the City (4:38)
  2. Cowboy George (3:22)
  3. Exploding Chimney (2:29)
  4. Mountain Energei (3:20)
  5. Serum (4:54)
  6. Hittite Man (5:46)
  7. Wise Ol' Man (3:34)
  8. Blindness (6:27)
  9. Junger Cloth (4:56)
10. New Facts Emerge (4:02)
11. Dr. Bucks' Letter (5:17)
12. Latch Key Kid (3:18)
13. Midnight in Aspen (3:11)
14. Mister Rode (7:36)
15. Last Commands of Xyralothep Via M.E.S. (3:20)
16. Fall Sound (3:53)
17. Taking Off (3:58)
18. Crop-Dust (5:30)
