Third and final part of a special/tribute dedicated to Mark E. Smith – read tributes by Nick Panagakos and Scott Creney. You can also head over to The Fall Online’s repository of links dedicated to MES.
We asked our readers/followers on Twitter to come up with their favorite Fall track – not an easy feat, by any means, given how huge and consistent the band’s discography is. Some went as far as picking multiple tracks at once – can’t say we blame them.
What’s your favorite Fall song?
Cruisers Creek (off of 1985 This Nation’s Saving Grace) proved to be the most popular choice (picked by Noise for Zeros, Julius Orange, Patrick Hemingway and Lickluster.
Other popular choices include
Tempo House (picked by Dynamite Hemorrhage, Rostov’s Coffee)
Theme From Sparta FC (picked by Clemens Kurek, Pope Dan Gusset)
Deadbeat Descendant (picked by Auxiliary Out, Gerard Marshall)
Big New Prinz (picked by Pope Dan Gusset, Scott Briggs)
Worth mentioning again that its hard to pick just one definitive Fall favorite, so dive into the thread to find out more! Feel free to leave a comment about your favorite Fall track below as well.
