The Fall
Live At St. Helens Technical College '81
Castle Face
Catalogue Number
Release Date
January 15, 2021


It’s well-documented that Mark E Smith’s long-running band are deliberately hit or miss on-stage performers, so was there any need for another Fall live release? In the case of Live At St. Helens Technical College ’81, absolutely. Poised for the legendary status they would achieve after the release of Hex Induction Hour the following year, the raw, snot-nosed energy radiating from this desk recording is a reminder of how peerless a band they are. Future classics like ‘Jawbone and the Air Rifle’ and killer tunes like ‘Leave The Capitol’ flit from unmitigated punk fury to rockabilly tatters, reminding us that, even back then, you could expect anything from a Fall show.
