Thirty Days, 30 Albums: How I Fell in Love With The Fall | Music | The Guardian

“I decided it was time to educate myself. I would immerse myself in Smith’s Wonderful and Frightening World in the most total way I could – by listening only to the Fall, one album a day, in release order, and nothing else … for an entire month. I wanted to hear them develop and change, and try and get some sense of what the fuss was about. After all this is a band people are obsessed with. I suspected it might drive me mad. What I hadn’t expected is the extent to which I, too, would get obsessed. Far from getting sick of them, by the middle of the month the Fall were all I could talk about, read about, practically think about. I almost certainly bored everyone who knows me to tears.”

—Marc Burrows, “Thirty Days, 30 Albums: How I Fell in Love With The Fall.” The Guardian. December 31, 2014.
