The Fall – Bend Sinister

Bend Sinister

The FallBend Sinister Beggars Banquet BEGA75 (1986)

Somewhat lesser than its predecessor This Nat-ion’s Saving Grace, due to a lack of consistency, Band Sinister finds a bit more of the vamp-driven music of the pre-Brix period reasserting itself.  The poppier style of recent years is still intact though. “Mr. Pharmacists” is a great straight rock tune with a hint of rockabilly.  “Shoulder Pads #2” has a killer beat.  This isn’t a Fall album I reach for often, but there are a few great individual tunes here.
