on 1984's 'the wonderful and frightening world of the fall', the band hooked up with noted producer john leckie to create another smart, varied album. the album makes few concessions to the larger market - every potential hook seemed spiked with the band's usual rough take-it-or-leave-it stance. mark e smith's audible, tape-distorting spit on the descending chord blast of 'elves' - already spiked with enough vocal craziness as it is - gives a sense of where the album as a whole aims. brix smith co-writes about half the tracks, creating a strong partnership with many highlights. this cd includes singles 'oh! brother and 'creep' plus associated b-sides and the 'call for escape route' ep
