THE FALL

Dragnet

(Turning Point Music) Used LP $20.00

With the departure of Martin Bramah after Live At The Witch Trials, Marc Riley switched to guitar and Steve Hanley joined on bass; the latter’s signature basslines would become a major part of The Fall for the next two decades. Disheveled beats, stuttering lyrics, asymmetrical phrasing, lo-fi, cohesive sound and fierce. 2002 pressing on 180-gram vinyl. Sealed
