The Marshall Suite Expanded Version - Fall (The)

The Marshall Suite Expanded Version
The Marshall Suite is a 1999 LP by The Fall, which builds on the techno-influenced beats of its predecessor Levitate (1997), while also returning to a more rockabilly influenced sound reminiscent of earlier Fall line-ups. The end result are songs like the primitive, catchy "Touch Sensitive", and the strange, complex, thumping jungle beats of "Crying Marshall" occurring in equal measure.Around the time of release, rumours circulated that The Marshall Suite was a concept album about "The Crying Marshall". Smith stopped short of denying this, telling The Wire that "I thought it would be good to do it as the story of his life, a themed LP, with a thread running through it. It's such an unhip thing to do". An unpublished section of the interview, later placed on the magazine's website, suggested Smith was not yet finished with his creation: "I do want to continue the Marshall theme, develop it. Maybe a five sided thing next, the return of the Marshall".This reissue of the long out print album, comes with two discs of bonus material, fully annotated booklet with notes by Mojo’s Daryl Easlea.


"Although The Marshall Suite was not a commercial success, it is testimony to Smith’s regenerative powers that he was able to turn adversity into artistic fodder.”
