THE FALL – Mark E. Smith is LOST IN MUSIC

THE FALL doing SISTER SLEDGE

SisterLost

One of those totally unexpected covers and another proof that anybody loves an
irresistible tune, even a mental post punk legend. It’s also quite remarkable how he
he treated LOST IN MUSIC with respect, at least musically. He’s not crushing it into a thousand dissonant pieces (would love to hear that too, actually), not at all. He turned
it into an accessible Madchester disco punk cracker. But – he’s MARK E. SMITH after all – the man picked this song carefully and on purpose in order to criticise the empty-headed hedonism of those early 90s (illegal) rave years. Listen to the way he sings with a grin, the way he articulates with his infamous sneer. Brilliant. Now, let’s all get lost…

The cover was on THE INFOTAINMENT SCAN – the 15th THE FALL album released in 1993
