Not all about Manchest-uh!
It's odd, the Fall are often seen as being quite Caustic-sounding (well, I suppose they are, at times) and always associated with Manchester.
But Mark E. Smith called Edinburgh his home for a time, around the time of Extricate, for reasons that even the re-issue notes don't seem to explain.
It did produce what is arguably the most summery-sounding hymn to my adopted home city, though, and the no.4 entry in 1991's Festive Fifty (or Phantom Fifty, if you prefer).
The Fall -'Edinburgh Man.' mp3
Still reckon you don't like the Fall?
