THE FALL 458489 A SIDES (Part 5)
Returning for a belated look at this newest of wee series on TVV, highlighting the run of singles released by The Fall on Beggars Banquet between 1984 and 1989.
I said before and I don't mind repeating myself.....the Beggars Banquet singles are for the most part absolute classics. The Fall you can easily dance to.
And they're all available (and have been since 1990) on one compilation CD called 458489 A Sides. Oh and the B Sides were also brought together on one CD as well.
Today it's the turn of BEG 150, originally released as a Double A side single on 11 October 1985 which reached #96 in the UK charts
mp3 : The Fall - Cruiser's Creek
mp3 : The Fall - L.A.
One of my personal faves this is.....Cruiser's Creek is a cracking indie-geetar number while L.A. is a cracking indie-sythn number. I know Mark E won't love me for the comparison, but the latter is almost vintage early 80s Simple Minds.....
