Description

Over a prolific forty-year career, the Fall created a world that was influential, idiosyncratic and fiercely original – and defied simple categorisation.Their frontman and lyricist Mark E. Smith spun opaque tales that resisted conventional understanding; the Fall’s worldview was an education in its own right. Who wouldn’t want to be armed with a working knowledge of M.R. James, shipping-dock procedures, contemporary dance, Manchester City and Can? The group inspired and shaped the lives of those who listened to and tried to make sense of their work. Bringing together previously unseen artwork, rare ephemera and handwritten material, alongside essays by a slate of fans, ‘Excavate!’ is a vivid, definitive record – an illumination of the dark corners of the Fall’s wonderful and frightening world.
