Description

  • 1982 was a decisive year for The Fall. Their critically acclaimed album “Hex Enduction Hour” was released in March on Kamera Records, closely followed by “Room To Live” in September.

 

  • This double LP includes the classic album (“Room To Live”) plus live recordings in Manchester, London, New Zealand, Netherlands and Canada.

 

  • This release is a double vinyl on coloured marble effect vinyl.

 

  • Founded by its only constant member, Mark E. Smith, The Fall formed in Manchester in 1976 and were one of the most prominent post-punk groups in the world. Musically, there may have been several stylistic changes over the years, but it was often characterised by an abrasive guitar-driven sound and frequent use of repetition, always underpinned by Smith's distinctive vocals and often cryptic lyrics.

 

      “They are always different; they are always the same.”      

                                                                             John Peel

 

  • Room To Live was the fifth studio album by The Fall and was Marc Riley’s last album with the group.

 

  • Featuring the classic line-up of Mark E. Smith alongside Steve Hanley (bass), Craig Scanlon (guitar), Karl Burns (drums), Paul Hanley (drums) and Marc Riley (guitar).

 

  • This is the fifth release in Cherry Red’s series of deluxe Fall reissues – “Fall Sound Archive”

 

  • “Room To Live” and “Hex Enduction Hour” are also available on a 7-CD boxset – “1982” alongside a host of live tracks, sessions, singles etc.
