The Fall; New album, new labelNews is reaching us that The Fall have signed to Cherry Red”¦
“Cherry Red Records have some exciting news! We’re thrilled to announce that the release of the new Fall album will be coming out on Cherry Red later in the year.”
At this stage there isn’t even a working title, let alone release dates etc ”“ When we get such information we will let you know. Having seen Mark E Smith and Co. on the recent tour, it’s fair to say they are currently riding a creative high; as such we are eagerly looking forward to the new album.
When The Quietus interviewed Mark E Smith I late 2010, the Fall’s leader told him that sessions for the group’s next album were progressing well, and that it would be a heavier beast, even a “Greek heavy metal album” ”“ Not sure what that sounds like, but we love it already!! He also commented that he was looking for a label that would let him bang a record out quickly… Hopefully he has just had his wish granted.

Fact Fans ”“ Cherry Red will be 327th label The Fall have signed to (might not be entirely accurate, but its loads!)

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
