The Fall - The Frenz Experiment (Expanded Edition) [LP]
Catalogue No.: BBQ2171LP
Release Date: 23rd October 2020
Beggars Arkive announce the upcoming reissue of The Fall’s 10th studio album, 1988’s ‘The Frenz Experiment’.
Available as an expanded edition on double CD and double LP, the releases both contain the original album, plus singles and B-Sides.
The CD version also includes a previously unreleased 4-track BBC session and ‘A Day In The Life’, a Beatles cover recorded exclusively for the NME charity compilation ‘Sgt. Pepper Knew My Father’ in 1988, plus a 24-page booklet with new interviews.
The LP version contains extensive sleevenotes with new interviews. The notes included with both formats contain brand new interviews conducted by Daryl Easley in May 2020.
“I was clearing out the other day and I came across a review of ‘Frenz Experiment’, saying how this could have been great, how it could have been like T. Rex’s ‘Electric Warrior’. I never attempted to make an album like T-Rex. I don’t see the point in anybody trying to make an album like T-Rex, although people do. I don’t mind it when journalists make fair comparisons, when they’ve done their homework. But comparing ‘Frenz’ to ‘Electric Warrior’ is plain daft.” - Mark E Smith, Renegade: The Lives And Tales Of Mark E Smith, 2008
