The Fall
Monday 13 December 2010
Powerstation Auckland

Full details and ticketing info below.

Here is a video of The Fall's first national TV appearance where they were introduced by John Peel as one of his favourite bands - it features  "Smile" off Perverted By Language (1983):

And here is their latest video for "Bury! PTS 2 + 4" taken from their 28th album (!!) Your Future Our Clutter released earlier this year.

 

PRESS RELEASE:

Seminal English post-punk band The Fall are to return to Auckland,New Zealand – 28 years after playing the shows which Flying Nun released as the peerless live album, Fall In A Hole.

There have been many live albums since Fall In A Hole, but only one further opportunity to bear witness to The Fall’s uncompromising and unforgettable live experience in New Zealand: and that was 20 years ago. But now Mark E. Smith and The Fall are to set it all straight, and bring their bristling brand of social complaint to the Powerstation on December 13.

Now in their 34th year of existence, The Fall are the rarest of anomalies in pop culture: a band whose currency has risen with each successive release. This year saw Your Future Our Clutter – their 28th studio album – issued to acclaim, astonishment, and admiration.

Mark E. Smith has reshuffled the line-up of The Fall countless times over the years, and as a result, The Fall have remained fresh, vital and energised. Legendary UK DJ John Peel memorably summed up The Fall with the phrase, “Always different, always the same”. The Fall recorded 24 Peel Sessions between 1978 and 2004 – a feat unequalled by anybody else.

Additionally, Smith has lent his inimatable vocal approach to many other artists over the years, including Coldcut, Mouse On Mars, Edwyn Collins, and most recently, Gorillaz on their album Plastic Beach.

The Fall return to New Zealand for the first time in 20 years, this December at the Powerstation. Make sure you don’t miss out on witnessing this band’s legendary scorn and energy on this very rare appearance.
