Marc Riley with the Creepers Creeping at Maida Vale 12″

While the FALL seems to be suffocating in their own style, MARC RILEY exploits the sound of his former mates and adds gusto to make a quartet of first-rate songs. Imagine Witch Trial FALL with an added dimension of life and catchiness, and you get an idea of what this fab disc is like. Get it!

Marc Riley with the Creepers Baby’s on Fire / Another Song About Motorbikes 7″

Marc Riley and company break a bit out of their FALL-like beat mold (at the same time as the FALL do with their cover of “Mr. Pharmacist”—interesting) with a cover of BRIAN ENO’s “Baby’s on Fire”—a pretty exciting version. On the flip, they return to their usual rolling form with a jangly, driving tune.
