 Beggars Arkive present the long-awaited reissue of The Fall’s ninth studio album, ‘Bend Sinister’, originally released in 1986. This edition is titled ‘Bend Sinister/The ‘Domesday’ Pay-Off Triad-Plus!’. It was the last of three albums in a row produced by John Leckie and was named after a dystopian novel by Vladimir Nabokov.

 After the universal acclaim for the previous year’s ‘This Nation’s Saving Grace’, ‘Bend Sinister’ often stands in its predecessor’s shadow. It is a dark, brooding album made at the height of the group’s Beggars Banquet years and many people include this at the top of the list of favourite Fall albums.

 “From ‘Bend Sinister’, ‘Mr. Pharmacist’ is a lurching instalment in pop music’s ongoing conversation with drug dealers, illicit and otherwise.

Actually a cover of 1960s garage-rockers the Other Half, it’s also a demonstration of how the Fall’s relatively unchanging style could bolster other people’s songs.” - Pitchfork

 “Part musical hypnotist, part ranting madman, Smith was a singular figure in post-punk. His Mancunian accent, dry witticisms and plays on words were one of the Fall’s most constant characteristics. Their songs were odysseys into his ever-verbose psyche, marked by repetitive rhythms and melodies.” - Rolling Stone

 “At various points in the band’s four-decade career, the Fall might sound like punk, hard rock, psychedelia, funk, blues-rock, jazz-rock, electropop or sheer noise. ‘If it’s me and your granny on bongos, it’s the Fall,’ Mr. Smith once declared. The BBC disc jockey John Peel, an early and steadfast supporter, said of the Fall that ‘they are always different, they are always the same.’” - The New York Times

 “Mark E Smith’s group of psychedelic post-punks rank as one of the most visionary, singular British bands of all time.” - The Guardian

 Remastered. Newly transferred from analogue tapes. Casebound double CD contains six unreleased songs and includes 24-page booklet with notes by Daryl Easlea.

 Double LP in gatefold sleeve with inner bags. Includes replica program for the Riverside production of ‘Hey Luciani!’.
