- Best Videos Ever #1: Wings - The Fall

A hand held camera being poorly operated while moving around the backroom of a pub.

Smith making not the slightest attempt to lip sync properly.

Fabulously bad wallpaper.

Random members of the band sitting at the bar and playing pool.

Brix doing absolutely nothing.

An empty beer glass on the table.

The North of England outside the window.

This was the song that made me hate the Fall for many years until that damascene moment that we all experience when it all slips into place and you’re finally part of the club.

Possible lineup:

Mark E. Smith – vocals, piano, violin
Craig Scanlon – guitar, vocals
Steve Hanley – bass guitar
Paul Hanley – drums, keyboards
Karl Burns – drums, bass guitar
Brix Smith – guitar & vocals
