Genres

Many albums by Mark E Smith and (various) company can claim to be The Fall’s ‘pop album’; their tenth LP, 1988’s The Frenz Experiment, is surely one of them. Just listen to ‘Frenz’ and ‘Carry Bag Man’, two bludgeoningly singable stompers propelled by primal grooves and belligerent refrains, extended to epic, skronking proportions on ‘Bremen Nacht’. If that wasn’t enough, this expanded edition of The Frenz Experiment also features The Fall’s best loved covers in The Kinks’ ‘Victoria’ and R. Dean Taylor’s ‘There’s a Ghost in My House’.
