The Fall's Deluxe CD Set


The Fall's Mark E. Smith & Ed Blaney release a 2018 reworking of The Train. Produced by Mike Bennett , the release is part of a deluxe double CD set version of The Train.


All kinds of weird and wonderful stuff lays in The Fall vaults. But nothing can beat this track – the legendary 40 minute version of ‘The Train’ -a tripped out track about a typically surreal train journey that Mark E Smith took where he sits in a carriage looking at other passengers who include John Robb, Dave Simpson and Andy Burnham the current Mayor of Manchester amongst others. 

Produced by Mike Bennett and with music from Ed Blaney – this a longer and stranger trip than anything Northern Rail can provide!

Ed Blaney explains  ‘Working with Mike on this was Mark’s original idea of us working together… Sometimes it’s just meant to be, I think Mike’s done a brilliant job on the production. Mark would indeed be very pleased, rather than us just re master we thought hard and decided to take this elsewhere, overall I think we’ve achieved what we wanted to do, a more futuristic going forward approach  than dwelling in the past…And several versions all in keeping with traditional values.’

The Falls Mark E Smith and long term collaborator Ed Blaney join forces with Fall producer Mike Bennett to produce this deluxe double CD set version of The Train. This re-mixed, re-mastered and re-worked classic features the vocals of Mark E Smith & Ed Blaney with guest appearances from John Robb, Dave Simpson and Andy Burnham the current Mayor of Manchester amongst others. From the second The Train leaves the platform, you will be captivated by the hypnotic vocals, riffs and beats this will be a train journey you won’t forget in a long time – IF EVER !!! This edition comes with a 24 page booklet and the first 250 will be signed by Ed Blaney.
