Janet Vs Johnny

BackdropGentle, subtle and reflective. Not adjectives often attributed to The Fall, but here deservedly so. Built on a guitar figure similar to Bert Jansch's 'Angie,' it flows smoothly along with MES almost sotte voce, so to speak (or whisper). 'A startling vision of a future that didn't happen.' PJ Harvey does a nice version of this, too.

Susan Vs Youthclub

BackdropA real hard electronica stomper where the eponymous Susan has an accident and reverts back to age sixteen to be horrified by her reflection in the mirror. MES relates this to a similar experience of his own, only, in his case, at the age thirteen, his reflection was of a man aged two hundred and three. He 'looked a whole lot better' and, what's more, 'it was all in all safe and warm.' This is then correlated with a story of Badly Drawn Boy confiscating his teeth and keeping them 'Safe and warm for a Saturday' in 'a mouldy old accoustic case.' Lovely. If you crave an even harder and crunchier version, why not try the remix?

Enigrammatic Dream

BackdropA Mark E Smith spoken word job over an instrumental loop at various speeds featuring a choppy stream of conciousness and a cluster of hesitations, mispronounciations and sundry other MES vocal tics. I particularly like how modernity becomes moderninity. Football, tomatoes and jousting, you name it. 'There is no reason to this.'
