The Fall - TV Appearances 1978-2004


And for my final posting in my week of Fall-related releases in the wake of the death of Mark E. Smith, here's a fan-assembled compilation (in .mp4 format) of television appearances, videos and interviews by the band over more than a quarter-century. You could say that this amalgamation serves as the visual
companion to The Fall's Complete Peel Sessions 1978-2004 box set, released in 2005. There are some superb and iconic performances featured here, from the band's appearance on Tony Wilson's So It Goes program in the late 1970's to the "Cruiser's Creek" video. Get ready for over TWO HOURS of Fall goodness!

Enjoy and remember what we'll all be missing, now that Mr. Smith is no longer with us. And as always, let me know what you think.

R.I.P., Mark.

  9. Thanks for sharing this. Great stuff, hadn't seen lots of it. This was good accompaniment to having just read Hanley's book. I missed a lot of newer Fall, it took Mark's passing to reignite my listening... Thanks again.

  14. Wonderful (not Frightening)! Thank you so much for bringing the lovely, and with such a quick response as well. I grew up and grew less hair to The Fall. "Yes, God. Take more of my hair as sacrifice to the well-being of Mark E." I guess I'm going to have more hair but less Mr Smith now. I know which I'd rather have.
