The Fall

The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, in 1976. With an ever-changing line up, the group essentially consists of its founder and only constant member, Mark E. Smith, who has said "If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's [the] Fall". First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the band's music has evolved through numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's membership. The Fall's music is characterised by repetition, an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy." more »

In Pearl City
Pearl City
No-one knows, no-one cares
about your world of stocks and shares 

I don't need no riding crop
I don't need no roundabout stop 

You're welcome to Pearl City 
See the bank 
Bright white trains
You old coots
retired early 

At Pearl City
In Pearl City 

Cappuccino and a slice of quiche
It's salad for the new educated 'teach'
Everything is gonna work out fine
They're sleepin' us in the lec-lecturer line
In Pearl City 

In Pearl City 
Ye over-counter drugs
Have left you totally bushwhacked 

In Pearl City 
We asked Vauxhall drivers
what they wanted from a garage
Did ya? Did ya? 

At service center on the rock 
Pearl City 
I don't need a bird beggin at my knees
I don't need no riding crop
I don't need no roundabout stop 

(Are you on the ball?)
