I’ve yet to play my copy of The Fall’s latest, ‘Your Future, Our Clutter’ (described by the New York Times’ Ben Ratliff as “good medicine for shortening historical memories”), though Derek Erdman has weighted in at Rocktober.  I can’t find the review online, but the above depiction of The Bard Of Salford will stick in my head long after most critiques have been long forgotten.

(if you’re wondering how someone could be in possession of a new Fall album for several days and not bothered to listen to it yet, it’s just M.E. Smith’s shitty lucky to have released a new LP the same week as this masterpiece.)
