The Frenz Experiment is the tenth studio album by English post-punk band the Fall. It was released on 29 February 1988 through record label Beggars Banquet. Smith originally intended to call the album Gene Crime Experience, until he realised that its acronym is "GCE". The phrase does still feature on the back cover of the CD. A strong similarity between "Athlete Cured" and Spinal Tap's "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight" has been noted.
At the same time a vinyl version was released (with the album title in gold lettering), with ‘Bremen Nacht’ in stead of ‘Bremen Nacht alternative’ (track 8) and without tracks 11-15. Matrix, Runout (Mirrored): BEGA 91 CD MASTERED BY NIMBUS. Other Versions (5 of 32) View All.

Definitely worth a listen, even if it's not a creative peak, or The Fall's more adventurous record, it is, indeed, a good and a fun album.
