The Fall Sign With Domino
New album due as early as this year The Fall Sign With Domino
The Fall, the band made up of whoever’s playing with enormously prolific and infamously cranky post-punk legend Mark E. Smith have a new label: Domino! That means the Fall are now labelmates with Animal Collective and Franz Ferdinand. They’ve, uh, hit the big-time?
Smith has worked with Domino before. In 2007, the label released Tromatic Reflexxions, the only album from Von Südenfed, Smith’s side project with the German electro-glitch duo Mouse on Mars.
According to a note posted on Domino’s website, the Fall will soon head to a studio in the north of England, where they’ll start work on a new album. The label says that “There are no firm release plans as yet, but towards the end of 2009 is a strong possibility.” Given that the Fall have recorded roughly fifty bazillion albums since 1979, there’s a chance they’ll be done recording the album by the time you finish reading this paragraph.
