Last week, Patrick graciously forwarded an email from someone touting a “debut” EP from “The Fall”. Needless to say, the recordings in question were not new works from Mark E. Smith and whatever plucky young ensemble he’s assembled, but rather, someone who thought THE FALL WAS A PRETTY GOOD NAME FOR A NEW PROJECT.
And who can argue with that logic? I mean, it worked pretty well the first time. Last time I checked, there were multiple version of Batman and Spiderman doing rather well commercially. And this is hardly without precedent. In the past we’ve been solicited by persons representing bands called Helium and The Frogs, thoroughly oblivious to the fact we’d already released records by bands with those very same names.
