If you're like me, and we know you're not, you don't know Lulu and the Lampshades from the Ladies who Lunch. But since you're NOT like me, enjoy this song via Anna Kendrick and Lulu and the Lampshades as commanded by Big Gay John.

I wasn't sitting around and thinking "what's Mark E. Smith up to these days?" He's crossed my path (metaphorically, I'm not name dropping [this time]) recently and I'll paint The Fall with the same brush I currently use to paint the Pixies with. The "I don't get it" brush. Some of you might note that I've changed my take on the Pixies. Once I hated them. Now I assume I lack some gene or other trait required to celebrate their genius. But since I love 4 or 5 of their songs (if you're a Pixies fan pick the 5 tracks that scream "poser" the loudest) I've decided it's more fun to hang with all the cool kids and group the band with Roxette and Third Eye Blind because some buttons are big and easily pushed.
What does this have to do with The Fall? Exactly.
Oh, it might help if I mention that metacritic or someplace similar said The Fall have been turning out some of the best stuff of their career over the past few years.
Wait a minute, I get what that really means. That is subtle.
