The Fall came to an end when Mark E Smith died in January 2018, but there's been no shortage of reissues, live albums and other posthumous releases since. Here's one that's definitely worth checking out: a live album recorded at St. Helens Technical College in February 1981 that will be released by Castle Face (the label run by Oh Sees' John Dwyer) on February 19, which is almost to the day of the show's 40th anniversary.
There have been a zillion lineups of The Fall but the one that played this show was one of the classic ones, featuring brothers Stephen Hanley and Paul Hanley on bass and drums, and guitarists Marc Riley and Craig Scanlon. This is around the time the band released the crucial Slates EP and all six of its songs are on this live album which genuinely sounds great. (There are a lot of not-so-good sounding Fall live albums out there but this is not one of them.) You can listen to "Leave the Capitol" from it, and check out the full tracklist and artwork, below.
