1982: 6CD Boxset


  • 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 six-disc boxset brings together those two classic albums alongside a host of John Peel sessions, Kamera singles, live performances and the group’s live album “In A Hole”, recorded during their tour of New Zealand and originally released on Flying Nun Records.



  • 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


  • “Hex Enduction Hour” was the fourth studio album by The Fall, building on their lo-fi production and featuring a two-drummer line-up. The album was recorded in Reykjavik, Iceland and Hitchin, Hertfordshire.


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


  • “In A Hole” was recorded at the last show of the group’s 1982 tour of Australia and New Zealand, at Mainstreet Cabaret in Auckland.


  • 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 third release in Cherry Red’s series of deluxe Fall reissues – “Fall Sound Archive”


  • The music comes housed in a rigid board slipcase and also features a 4,000-word essay by Daryl Easlea. It has been remastered by long-term Fall engineer Andy Pearce.


  • “Hex Enduction Hour” and “Room To Live” are also available as limit
