The Fall Forum Member Bands

Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote of The Fall, "Of all the late-'70s punk and post-punk bands, none were longer lived or more prolific than The Fall. Throughout their career, the band underwent a myriad lineup changes, but at the center of it all was vocalist Mark E. Smith. With his snarling, nearly incomprehensible vocals and consuming bitter cynicism, Smith became a cult legend in indie and alternative rock. Over the course of their career, The Fall went through a number of shifts in musical style, yet the foundation of their sound was a near-cacophonous, a-melodic jagged jumble of guitars, sing-speak vocals, and keyboards."

Considering the stylistic phases of The Fall, it comes to reason that the music made by fans of The Fall would reach across genres. Members of The Fall Online Forum divided their compilation into three CDs: pop, rock, and noise. All three are available to the public as The FOF Compilation.
