The Razz: Music: Live Reviews: The Fall Liquid Room, Edinburgh, Oct 17.

Byline: Barry Gordon

WITH more line-ups than a police station, and more dedicated websites than Britney Spears, the latest incarnation of The Fall wheeled into Edinburgh, playing a set as complex and alluring as ever.

Vocalist Mark E. Smith delivered cryptic verbal concrete that would blow away most modern poets. His band, though excellent, looked nervous. And rightly so as Smith messed with amplifiers and microphones. But everything sounded great. And that's what makes a great Fall show: the band play every show though it's their last - because it could be when Smith is your boss. Highlight was I Can Hear The Grass Grow, a punk ditty that came across as a WW2 speech to an amateur footie team. Strange? Not half. But that's The Fall. Wrong, yet somehow right
