The British musical group the Fall had just one constant member: vocalist Mark E. Smith. Aside from him, there were about 66 members over the band's 41-year existence, with about a third of the musicians lasting for less than a year. A number of guests and people with brief stays in the group are listed afterwards.
The Fall had two stints with Rough Trade Records before and after their time with Kamera - tracks from the Rough Trade releases were compiled on 1987's Palace of Swords Reversed, 1993's The Collection, 2002's The Rough Trade Singles Box, and the same year's two-CD set Totally Wired: The Rough Trade Anthology. The Fall released four albums for Permanent Records between 1993 and 1995, and tracks from all of them are compiled on The Permanent Years - Paranoia Man in Cheap Shit Room (2006).

The dangerous goth swing of Mountain Energei brought to mind Depeche Mode in their prime, except Smith spins out baffling lines about Dolly Parton and patriotism. 8. Slates/A Part of America Therein (1981). The Fall’s debut full-length album was recorded in one breathless day, and the sloppiness shows. But there were more ideas on this album than there are in some other bands’ entire discographies.
The Fall is an institution, Smith once boasted to NME before checking his ego ever so slightly: It’s my life, but I’m not the Fall. If any one Fall song contradicts Smith’s humble claim that he was just another guy in the band, it’s Hip Priest. That said, one of the album’s standout tracks, Eat Y’Self Fitter, is far from a jingle.
