The Fall on The Tube 1985 - The performance of “Bombast” included here is probably my favourite thing ever to surface on YouTube but I’ve never seen the whole thing before, in such high quality. Everyone on stage looks like they just know they’re in the best band in the world. Even Craig seems quite animated. And Mark is wearing makeup!
Now this has cheered up a rubbish day…and yeah, the group’s confidence is visible as well as audible. Superb stuff.
We are the Fall Northern white crap that talks back We are not black. Tall. No boxes for us. Do not fuck us. We are frigid stars. We were spitting, we were snapping “Cop Out, Cop Out!” as if from heaven.
