The Fall - Radio Sessions (Vol 3)

Here you go then, the third and final slice of Smith worship for the time being. Personally I don't think it's possible to have too much Fall but I have been told that there are persons in existence who actually don't like The Fall. I know it's a strange concept but apparently it's true. My recommendation for these strange creatures is a lengthy session of electro shock treatment to get the juices flowing again.

These two live sets are simply sublime but the real treat is in the Mixing It session. The Mark E Smith interviews are just hilarious. He must be one of the most un-interviewable people on the planet. I'd love to see him let loose on Johnathon Ross....
