A stab at The Fall: they arose immediately post-first-wave of mid-to-late-'70s punk. (For some of us, 1978 was the beginning of the end.) The early rush we experienced with punk--Ramones, Damned, Pistols, etc.--was flagging and we saw a glut of cookie-cutter bands. (I won't name names.) The Fall nearly one-upped the founding bands in terms of fuck-you sloppy swagger. Attitude, whatever. But that aside, MES and crew wrote amazing, if amazingly simple, pop songs, one right after the other. The sheer quantity of production was breathtaking. Pace John Peel, they were always the same--you could smell a Fall song two blocks away--and always different--they kept you on your toes in terms of new tricks or conceits they'd advance. I really think most rock music can be distilled into an early tune of theirs, "Repetition," which is a musical ding an sich, if ever there were one.

when i attended high school the man's band was Deep Purple. ya know?
Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:29pm Irwin:

Brix Smith would take exception to calling the Fall a "man's band." They were ONE man's band (MES), but Brix contributed a lot to their sound when she was in the Fall.
Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:29pm Irwin:

As the next track demonstrates.
Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:30pm Parq:

The sad thing is how the relatives disregard the artists's restraint, and mine his or her legacy for every buck it's worth. Books that the author never meant to see the light of day get released by his or her estate, more than willing to get whatever people will pay for it whether their deceased relative would have wanted it that way or not.
Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:30pm Linda Lee:

ok, i like 'Boxoctosis'. maybe cos MES isn't pushing the iconoclastic delivery so hard. also believe it's perfectly possible for women to be part of something that appeals mainly to men. :-)

Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:33pm TDK60:

It's a sound and attitude; the 3 Rs: repetition, repetition, repetition; a regional flavor: "Leave the Capitol!"

I like the stuff with Brix the best.
Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:34pm Linda Lee:

the female may play, but the product isn't feminine. for lack of better terms for energy & color. know what i mean?
Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:35pm Passaic River Blues:

@Linda: I am no expert but I think with the Fall it’s a confluence of many things resulting in something ineffable. There’s Smith’s vision, his acerbic wit, the words that undercut sacred cows in a series of penetrating phrases, but there’s also the music, the post-punk examination and deprogramming of the building blocks of other kinds of music, often repurposed in towering grooves. Then again, there are tons of songs that abandon the formula, and some where the trademark Smith wit is largely absent. I said this elsewhere, but I remember hearing “Barmy” many years ago on a Hudson Valley college radio station and it all just suddenly clicked with me.

By the way, Brian Turner interviewed Brix a year and a half ago: wfmu.org...

Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:36pm Kat in Chicago:

The Fall definitely has groove, I respond to that for sure
Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:38pm Linda Lee:

Bush Tetras' sound was very yang too, & 3 out of 4 band members were women, iirc. gender is a funny thing; how it manifests musically is wild. we respond definitively to a sense of musical 'gender', too, i believe. sort of my point about the Fall ..
Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:38pm Fredericks:

Linda Lee: Not really.
Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:39pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Wed. 1/31/18 4:40pm Linda Lee:

i hear you Kat. I actually liked 'Boxoctosis' & surprised myself.
  Wed. 1/31/18 4:40pm Dean:

I get it. "Striking" doesn't say as much about the music as about its effect on listener moi. I'm closer to objective with "pop," which is a feature shared by lots of punk, of course. The Ramones obviously embraced an aesthetic of pop simplicity. But contra Fredericks @4:24, I think The Fall were *less* about attitude than a lot of punk, one reason being mere swagger had lost its value by then. MES and crew seemed to thrive fashioning quirky pop songs with qualities shared by less quirky ones, e.g., they're musically memorable, clever but not too, they elaborate a simple motif (instrumentally, rhythmically, God knows vocally) into, uh, striking variations.

Yes, Petula is still releasing new albums. Has a new one out right now.

Never her husband. She's been married to the same person (Claude Wolff) since 1961 or so. Though she now has a paramour...all right, enough gossip!

Matt! I like him. He wrote a song for me and my daughter. He'll probably write a song for you too if you ask him to.
