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 »

You got Manny in the library
Working off his hangover 3:30
You get the spleen at 3:15
But its 3:13

The mad kid walked left-side south-side towards me
He was about 7
His mother was a cleaning lady
She had a large black dog
And the mad kid said:
"gimme the lead
Gimme the lead
Gimme the lead"
Id just walked past the alcoholics dry-out house
The lawn was littered with cans of barbican
There was a feminists Austin maxi parked outside
With anti-nicotine anti-nuclear stickers on the side
On the inside and they didn't even smoke

Anyway two weeks before the mad kid had said to me
"ill take both of you on,
Ill take both of you on"
Then he seemed the young one
He had a parka on and a black cardboard archbishops hat
With a green-fuzz skull and crossbones
He'd just got back from the backward kids party
Anyway then he seemed the young one
But now he looked like the victim of a pogrom
