What do you mean actually?  That's what I said, Spectrum game AND Fall song...

It's not a Spectrum game, but it is a Spectrum utility.

15! and the fall are probably my fave 'rock band'. i tend to stop listeing after levitate when the original band left tho

You should give the final-era albums a go.

There's some absolutely fantastic stuff to heard from the post-Hanley/Burns years.

Oh and I got 18.



Lick my balls.
Was a huge fall fan, grew up playing the speccy, this was like my mastermind specialist subject :D

You should definitely get "The Unutterable" and "The Marshall Suite", they're both fabulous!

Somebody on Facebook told me I should do 'Game Boy Advance game or Marillion b-side?'.

Now, I'm not at all into Marillion in the slightest, but in a quick google I came across this compilation album, and well, this stuff writes itself, doesn't it?

As is The Real New Fall LP, imperial Wax, Your Future Our Clutter etc etc.

I just picked up the yellow vinyl of Imperial Wax and forgot how good it is.

" most people" ? I know that Mark E. Smith's death warranted a short item on " News At Ten", but some of the results on this very thread show that The Fall are still very much a cult band. I would have thought that there would have been 20/20s all over the place. I'mactually quite surprised at Norton Canes' lowly result.And I suppose this just goes to show...

You do realise they released 31 studio albums, 12 eps, and 48 singles (including many b-sides that don't appear on the albums and eps), right? That's a lot to remember.

Also you don't tend to get many casual Fall fans do you?

You're either in deep or you're not at all surely?

I can't imagine ever meeting anybody that plays a bit of Are You Are Missing Winner or Room To Live whilst they potter around the garden for an hour.

This is cab though, the fall are like your basic bitch bread and butter.
Next you'll be telling us you've never had phimosis.
Honestly, they're letting any old tom, dick, and harry in this place nowadays.

Lots more Spectrum games though. If I didn't recognise it as a Fall song I assumed it was a Spectrum game.

Spectrum utility or Fall song possibly even better game.

8. Just on gut, most of them seemed too bizarre to be game titles. How wrong I was. Plus I knew the famous games noted above.

Great work Pete, I did enjoy the varying choices.

12/20.  Not too bad for someone who's only got Slates and who had the odd mid-80s Peel session recorded off the radio (and who never had a ZX Spectrum).

I was hoping this would involve hearing the tunes and determining which was which.  Not doing it from the song/game titles.  What rot.

Stumbled on the 'Contraflow' question - what a berk I am!

10/20 and fucking delighted with that having never played a ZX Spectrum game or listened to a Fall album.

19 and in hindsight the one I got wrong was clearly the other thing.

20/20 here. I usually dislike the "lol sounds like a Fall song" trope but the game titles were amusingly feasible as Fall titles.

12... Not a Fall guy, and we were an Acorn Electron family...

I've listened to a compilation album (and few odd bits of others) and played a whole bunch of Speccy games in me yoot, but still only got 10.

We should form a band.

9/20 not bad considering I know bugger all about The Fall and wouldn't have been seen dead with a speccy.

When do we get Tindersticks song or C64 game?
