All kinds of weird and wonderful stuff probably in the Fall faults.

But nothing can beat this track – the legendary 40 minute version of ‘The Train’ -a tripped out track about. typically surreal train journey that Mark E Smith took where he sits in a carriage looking at other passengers who include John Robb, Dave Simpson and Andy Burnham the current Mayor of Manchester amongst others. Produced by Mike Bennett and with music from Ed Blaney – this a longer and stranger trip than anything Northern Rail can provide – and that’s saying something!

 

Ed Blaney tells LTW  ‘Working with Mike on this was Mark’s original idea of us working together.. Sometimes its just meant to be, I think Mike’s done a brilliant job on the production. Mark would indeed be very pleased, rather than us just re master we thought hard and decided to take this elsewhere, overall I think we’ve achieved what we wanted to do, a more futuristic going forward approach  than dwelling in the past.. And several versions all in keeping with traditional values.’

  1. Sounds like a classic track from Mark E Smith, back to the 80s 90s period! Also great work from Blaney, and a brilliant production from Mike Bennett!

  2. Belinda Connolly

    Love this, it reminds me of the pretty things with Mark E Smith belting out some really good lyrics. really like the end section.it reminds me of Faust.Blaney adds great guitar and the video is quiet frightening

  3. This track sounds like epic Fall material with almost a Fatboy Slim beat going through the main riff. Absolutely love it! Looking forward to its release. Really glad to hear on the radio.

  4. I don’t really get the Fatboy Slim connection but the driving is quite interesting

    I remember one they started this project at blueprint Studios. Great that it’s finally getting released. Sounds epic and I love the heavy section before it drops into the acoustic bit . Very bouncy and although dark quite uplifting . Would like to know how to get hold of a copy of this. I gather it on mark Smiths cog Sinister label but I can’t find it in the shops

  5. A fascinating sonic voyage from the desk of Mike Bennet, with Ed Blaney pushing boundaries on the guitar. A strong and visceral fitting finale to a seismic career from the mighty Mark E Smith.

  6. Classic Mark E Smith vocal, ace guitar by Blaney, great production – Really wanna get a physical copy. I collect all the Cog Sinister stuff – can’t find a release date online

  7. Really like this tune! Mark E Smith sounds awesome and at times quite scary. Love the acoustic drop. Very cool record!

  8. Je suis ravie d’écouter cette chanson avec ses connotations existentialistes. C’est si Mark E Smith! Vive Cog Sinister!

  9. Shaun Cunningham

  10. Oi Ken huuva
