PBS is proud to present this incredible live recording of The Fall on Sunglasses After Dark on Thursday 8th of February at 8pm with Phil McDougall.

Recorded live-to-air on August 2nd 1982, during The Fall's first tour of the Antipodes, this is a fantastic recording of a band reaching its prime. Mark E Smith's acerbic wit and unique vocal delivery was here matched by the two drum line-up (a configuration that last until the mid-1980s), and the bass playing of Steve Hanley, so crucial to The Fall's classic sound, is pronounced and propulsive.
