If Mark E Smith’s words were to be believed, every band sounds like The Fall in some way, shape or form. Every act from the last thirty years has ripped them off, apparently, such is the enormity of his band’s influence. Seminal as they are, this is patently untrue, but Pavement acknowledged their debt to the band, with the track from their debut album Slanted and Enchanted being more of a tribute than a rip-off.
So as much as a case of compare and contrast, this post’s about enjoying two cracking tunes for the price (and chords) of one.
And if you’re loving my work, there’s more of the same (only different) at Christophernosnibor.co.uk
