商品説明

Again working with John Leckie on production, the Fall's third Beggars album, Bend Sinister, was a distinctly down affair -- not that the Fall were ever a shiny happy band, of course, but both music and lyrics seemed like a darker corner to dwell in. Happily there was no worry that the Fall would ever go goth; one suspects Mark E. Smith would rather have his tongue removed. Still, opening track R.O.D. makes for a distinctly lower-key start in comparison to recent leadoffs like Lay of the Land and Bombast, almost sounding a bit like fellow Mancunian legends Joy Division, Smith's lyric his own depressing vision of a beast slouching toward Bethlehem. Leckie's production emphasizes space in the recording, while the band as a whole sounds generally more deliberate and understated, even Craig Scanlon's guitar not leaping quite as much to trebly life as is normally the case. Songs like Gross Chapel - British Grenadiers favor Steve Hanley's bass work as much as anything, while the almost industrial/hip-hop beat of US 80's-90's sets the tone for a glowering vision of the States from, as Smith puts it, the big-shot original rapper. Elsewhere, there's Smith's vision of the eternal outsider comes to life once again -- Shoulder Pads 1, a hardly disguised sneer against being surrounded by people who can't tell Lou Reed from Doug Yule, for all that there's a slightly quirky arrangement thanks to Simon Rogers' keyboards. Still, there are certainly moments of sheer fun -- in keeping with the band's regular ear for good cover versions, this time around psych-era obscurities the Other Half get the nod with a brisk rip through the obvious drug references of Mr. Pharmacist. Brix again shares vocal leads with Smith at various points, notably Dktr. Faustus, a distinctly reworked version of that particular legend that turns into a frantic, audibly unhappy dance groove. ~ Ned Raggett, Rovi
