Led by front man Mark E Smith, The Fall have been known to push boundaries and have never held back when it comes to experimentation. Described as ‘always different’, by well-known DJ John Peel, The Fall have achieved in what other bands in the UK strive to do, and that is to maintain their cult-like status in an ever demanding music industry for over four decades.
