• The Fall’s second studio album, reissued here as a limited splatter vinyl LP with 7” single replica of their ‘Rowche Rumble’ single. (Also available as a 3CD clamshell box-set).

• Founded by its only constant member, Mark E. Smith, The Fall formed in Manchester in 1976 and were one of the most prominent post-punk groups in the world. Musically, there may have been several stylistic changes over the years, but it was often characterised by an abrasive guitar-driven sound and frequent use of repetition, always underpinned by Smith’s distinctive vocals and often cryptic lyrics.

• “They are always different; they are always the same…”
John Peel

• “Dragnet” is the second studio album – released 26th October 1979 – these editions celebrate the fortieth anniversary of this seminal album.

• Originally released through record label Step-Forward, it predicated two major factors in the group’s career – high productivity and high group turnover.
