The Fall's Mark E Smith says he doesn't like 'any' of the songs on their last album

Singer not a fan of their last LP 'Ersatz GB'

The Fall's Mark E Smith says he doesn't like 'any' of the songs on their last album
The Fall's frontman Mark E Smith has said that he does not like any of the songs which featured on the band's most recent album 'Ersatz GB'.

The cult post-punk band released their 29th studio LP in late 2011 but Smith has admitted that he had not been satisfied with the record but promised that their next record 'Re-Mit', set for release this April, would be much stronger.

Asked if there were any songs by The Fall he was personally not fond of, the singer replied to Q: "Yeah. The last album, actually. I don't like any of them. You've got to be honest for the fans."

He added: "I would say five songs on the last record were bad, but I will make it up... 'Re-Mit' is going to terrify people. It's quite horrible. The Fall have had enough and we're coming for you."

Smith hit the headlines in November last year when he spoke about his beef with Mumford And Sons. The iconic frontman took against the band at a festival in Dublin two years ago after they started a backstage singalong and recalled: "I was talking to the promoter who's a mate of mine and said, 'Look, don't take the piss. You've stuck us next to some mongoloid Irish folk band.' The promoter turns around and says, "They're number one in your English charts." I thought he was fucking joking. They started clopping about singing, sounded like they were dancing on the tables - so I told them to shut the fuck up."

'Re-Mit' will be The Fall's 30th studio LP and will be released on Cherry Red Records.
