The wait is finally over. It seems like years since the last Fall album, but was it worth the wait I can hear you asking. The simple answer is a massive YES because "Our Future Your Clutter" contains some of Mark E Smith's finest work in years. The album has nine tracks including a version of Wanda Jacksons "Funnel Of Love" and will be released on 26th April on various formats including a rather essential double vinyl edition. What it basically comes down to is the fact that this album is just about perfect and if it isn't on your shopping list you should consider my Dr Martin boot inserted firmly in your rectum.
