Campaigners gather outside Electric Ballroom gig
The Fall‘s show at the London Electric Ballroom last night (November 23) was hit by protestors objecting to them playing a gig in Israel.
Protesters with banners gathered outside the Camden venue, handing out leaflets urging Mark E Smith‘s band to cancel a concert scheduled in Tel Aviv on January 20 next year.
A Facebook page dedicated to the campaign has also been set up.
Singer Smith did not comment on the protest during the gig. The band played a set which featured five tracks from the band’s recent album ‘Your Future Our Clutter’ and their cover of George Jones‘ ‘White Lightning’, which they released as a single in 1990. Noted in the audience was comic Frank Skinner.
The Fall played:
‘Theme From Sparta FC’
‘Weather Report 2’
