Michael Clark & Co. vs The Fall
OK - lofi warning ...... back in 1988 sometime between the dates 20th Sept and 8th Oct - I found myself sitting in the front row of the balcony at the Sadlers Wells Theatre, London - watching Michael Clark and company bounding around the stage whilst the mighty Fall bashed their way through the 'I am Curious Orange' set. A cool event this one - and the only time I have ever witnessed messers MES and co in a sitting position... - and the only time we have seen Brix pushed around on a giant hamburger being persued by a mutant-formed Leigh Bowery !
Stuck out of a carefully positioned bag, I had a microphone plugged into a recording Sony Walkman - and proceeded to tape the whole of the gig..... Accoustics being what they are in the venue - and the fact that The Fall were LOUD - this is at times boomy - toppy - middly and muddly - bit like your typical professionally produced Fall albums you may joke - but nope this is truly lofi - and a fan-only-download perhaps ...
so here ya have it - Farmer Glitch presents from his personal bootleg collection:
