The Fall were an English post-punk group, formed in 1976 in Prestwich, Greater Manchester. They underwent many line-up changes, with vocalist and founder Mark E. Smith as the only constant member.
A journalist once described them as "a kind of Northern English magic realism that mixed industrial grime with the unearthly and uncanny," voiced through a "one-note delivery somewhere between amphetamine-spiked rant and alcohol-addled yarn." It was the favourite band from the legendary BBC disc jockey John Peel.
The Light User Syndrome is The Fall's 18th album. The crisp live edge to the recording is very well done, and its one of their most abbrasive and hardhitting album of the 90's. It features the popular tracks "Spinetrap", "Oleano", "Hostile", and "He Pep!". In addition, they recorded a cover version of Johnny Paycheck's "Stay Away (Old White Train)".
The 2LP-set The Light User Syndrome is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on silver coloured vinyl.
