Fall - Frenz Experiment (1988) Retail CD
One of the less-celebrated Fall LPs, Frenz is something of an oddity, bleaker in tone than the group's other late-Eighties albums, and in its way, still more ambitious. The album is split between old and new Fall styles: extended, convoluted texts and comic monologues ("Oswald Defence Lawyer", "Bremen Nacht" and "Athlete Cured") rub up against thumbnail sketches of impoverished domestic life. Smith's lyrics are pruned down to acute asides, low in the mix against Simon Rogers' eerie electronica. "My friends you could count on one hand," mutters Smith over the title track's cadences, sounding sullenmore… and sad. On "Get A Hotel", he ponders chucking it all in and opening up a guesthouse. The original hit was "Victoria", the Kinks' gently-jingoistic boogie mashed into a metallic stomp; the rest of Frenz is darker, deeper and far more rewarding. --Taylor Parkes
