The Fall – The Wonderful and Frightening Escape Route To The Fall – Vinyl LP, 2015

Beggars Banquet US

Vinyl LP pressing of this release by the Manchester post-punk band fronted by the enigmatic and eccentric Mark E. Smith. The Wonderful And Frightening Escape Route To The Fall contains the material from the two singles and the EP, Call For Escape Route, that the band released in 1984 which were also part of the extended cassette version of the original The Wonderful And Frightening World Of The Fall album. These were the remaining tracks recorded at the sessions. Nine tracks including ‘C.R.E.E.P.’, ‘Oh! Brother’, ‘Pat-Trip Dispenser’, ‘No Bulbs 3’ (Unedited), ‘God Box’ and more. Not just a collection of stray tracks, this looks and sounds like a bona-fide Fall classic.
