Further Information


This is not a book about a rock band. This is not even a book about Mark E
Smith. This is a book about The Fall group - or more precisely, their world.
Over a prolific forty-year career, the Fall created a world that was influential,
idiosyncratic and fiercely original - and defied simple categorisation.

Their frontman and lyricist Mark E. Smith spun opaque tales that resisted con-
ventional understanding; the Fall's worldview was an education in its own right. Who wouldn't want to be armed with a working knowledge of M. R.
James, shipping-dock procedures, contemporary dance, Manchester City and
Can? The group inspired and shaped the lives of those who listened to and
tried to make sense of their work.
Bringing together previously unseen artwork, rare ephemera and handwritten
material, alongside essays by a slate of fans, EXCAVATE! is a vivid, definitive record - an illumination of the dark corners of the Fall's wonderful and frightening world.
