The latest release in our series of deluxe Fall reissues – “Fall Sound Archive” is on the way in October.
**AVAILABLE WITH LIMITED EDITION COLLECTORS BADGE WHILE STOCKS LAST**
Imperial Wax Solvent was The Fall’s 26th album, originally released in 2008. Following the departure of the American musicians who contributed to Reformation Post-TLC, the new British based line-up was to become the band’s last and longest serving incarnation. Alongside Mark E. Smith was Elena Poulou (keyboards, vocals), Dave Spurr (bass), Pete Greenway (guitar) and Keiron Melling (drums). It was well received by critics and entered the UK Album Charts at #35.
Our fresh reissiues feature a double LP version of the 2008 album that comes in glorious splatter vinyl with the original album taking up Disc One, while Disc Two features the un-used version of the album recorded at London’s Britannia Row studios. As with the other Fall reissues these have notes by Fall guru Daryl Easlea and have been mastered by long time engineer Andy Pearce.
The 3CD edition comes with two bonus discs, including an unused version of the album recorded at Britannia Row studios in London plus a live set recorded at De La Warr, Bexhill On Sea from 10th May 2008.
