Two noise merchants of a different sort - one feeds the linguistic turmoil in
your brain, the other feeding the sonic turmoil in your heart.
The Fall were more post-punk than new wave, but then labels weren;t what they were about and really they weren't anything else at all. Of the post-punk era, only Joy Division could really cmopete with them.
The Fall were basically just themselves - or the collection of selves constructed by Mark E Smith at a particular point in time - and that is everything they have ever been for the past thrity years. resolutely difficult and superbly engaging, this for me is one of their finest moments.
The Jesus and Mary Chain were a blast that should have come and gone in a puff of smoke but in the end dragged on for years, producing some great records - but none that had quite the incendary effect of their first LP, Psychocandy - from which this track is taken. A website: JAMC.
