They were superb.Believe me if they were anything but I would have no hesitation in saying so.The group played fast and were as tight as I have ever heard them live for a long time.Mark stayed on stage throughout the set and apart from his facial issues seemed fine and in good spirit,
and when questioned by me about what are you doing in the countryside he replied.I need fresh air.
Dont think he meant it.:D
.Regarding the (hippy )crowd the Woodland stage was packed out and they had to allow one in one out.They seemed unsure at the start but after about half way through there was a huge mosh pit going on it was really good to see.
The sound was also spot on.The only clip of this gig is a 30 second video which I will also post. Im gutted that I didnt film more but I was a little pissed.Anyway great weekend made special by The groups top performance.

Another online review.Harsh on Mark.:(

The Fall in the Woodland Stage. A bit like African Headcharge, I have plotted the career of this band through John Peel’s shows but never really took to them like he did. I’ve never seen them live and my interest was one of tolerance out of loyalty to Peel rather than actually enjoying the music. I had been pre-warned that they’d probably play a set of new stuff and rarely delved into their back catalogue. Being a purveyor of new music, this suited me fine. The band of musicians came on, plugged in and made a fantastic noise, it’s psyched out riff driven music, repetitive and hypnotic… Enter Mark E. Smith – a wreck of a human being, a walking miracle, a cyst on his forehead and an abscess in his mouth. He is a horrible cunt, he is a real-life Brick Top from the film Snatch. He is the man who gets on the bus smelling of piss, he is both repulsive and compulsive. It’s a spectacle as he interferes with the keyboards, the guitar amps and drums while his band members are playing them. This adds an element of fear and the unknown to the set and you are compelled to watch. Maybe I caught them on a good day… This was my Bearded Theory highlight… Today was a good day.

It's the title of a 1953 short story by John Wyndham, reprinted in his 1956 collection "The Seeds of Time". I believe Wyndham coined it, but it was subsequently adopted by other science fiction writers.

The group are certainly continuing to surprise and explore new frontiers, hair wise.

I think the only step left is for Mark to go with an early '90's boho ponytail.

That linked review was aggressive toward Mark, but it's nice to see live Fall is still winning new converts.

Hoping MES adds a few dates to the US so I can see him again.
