Details of The Fall and the Ticket Luck value
English post-punk band, The Fall was established in 1976, in Prestwich, Greater Manchester. Originally their line up of the band members was going to Martin Bramah as the band's vocalist, Tony Friel as the bassist; Mark Smith was on guitar and drumming was supposed to be carried out by Una Baines.
But during their first ever live gig, on May 23 1977 in Manchester the band featured some unknown drummer rather than Una Baines; however the sound of their music was like no other and created a new sound wave in Northern England. Few days later on 3rd June, they performed their second live gig with some alterations in the bands line up.
The alteration included the drumming from Karl Burns, while Una Baines played the key board. Later that year on 9 November 1977, at Indigo Studios, Manchester, the bands line up of Smith, Bramah, Friel, Baines and Burns recorded Psycho Mafia, Bingo-Master's Break-Out!, Repetition and Frightened. The recording was funded by the manager of Buzzcocks, Richard Boon, who also had a plan of releasing the tracks from his label, but soon he dropped that idea as he decided to devote his concentration towards Buzzcocks.
From the year 1984 up till 1989, The Fall released a series of highly admired studio album, along with mediocre hit singles. The Chain of albums started back in 1984 when they released Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall. This album was followed by another studio album that was released in 1985 with the title of This Nations Saving Grace. During the recording of This Nations Saving Grace, The Fall's drummer Burns was replaced by Simon Wolstencroft. The band's next two albums Bend Sinister and The Frenz Experiment came out in1986 and 1988 correspondingly.
!990's era for The Fall started after the departure of Smith's Ex-wife Brix. Brix's departure was followed by the short return of Bramah, but after working for The Fall's next album called Extricate that was released in 1990, Bramah along with Schofield took the leave as well. The band released their next studio album the following year with the title of Shift-Work. For the band's 1992's release Code: Selfish Dave Bush joined in the band on key boards. Then in 1993 they released their next album with the title of The Infotainment Scan. Their chain of albums coming out on consecutive years continued as they released Middle Class Revolt and Cerebral Caustic in 1994 and 1995 respectively.
In the beginning of the year 2005 The Fall was featured and was the subject of BBC Four TV documentary, The Fall: The Wonderful and Frightening World of Mark E. Smith, at that same documentary The Fall were declared one of the most enigmatic, idiosyncratic and chaotic garage bands of the last 30 years. Also in 2005, The Fall released its 25th album titled Fall Heads Roll.
The Fall's music has undergone several changes in their music style; as stated by John Peel, who calls The Fall his Favorite band, They are always different; they are always the same. As of February of the year 2007, The Fall has released a total of 26 studio albums along with number of other live albums. Mainly Fall's tracks are guitar driven that use recurrent repetition along with Smiths mysterious lyrics accompanied with his distinct vocals. That's the reason why the band's fame isn't a widespread but they still have managed to develop a sound fan base.
