Rough Trade are very excited to present this Interactive Live Stream Q&A with author Bob Stanley joined by special guests Tessa Norton, Adelle Stripe and Siân Pattenden for an intimate in-conversation. This event celebrates the release of 'Excavate! The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall', the new book published by Faber.

A definitive insight into the ever-influential world of Mark E. Smith and the Fall, featuring never-before published essays and ephemera from fans, collectors and the artist and band themselves.

'Mark E Smith provided me with an alternative education, looping me into Camus, and Arthur Machen, and William Blake, and Can, and dub and old garage punk and rock'n'roll.' Stewart Lee

Over a prolific forty-year career, the Fall created a world that was influential, idiosyncratic and fiercely original - and defied simple categorisation.

Their frontman and lyricist Mark E. Smith spun opaque tales that resisted conventional understanding; the Fall's worldview was an education in its own right. Who wouldn't want to be armed with a working knowledge of M. R. James, shipping-dock procedures, contemporary dance, Manchester City and Can? The group inspired and shaped the lives of those who listened to and tried to make sense of their work.

Bringing together previously unseen artwork, rare ephemera and handwritten material, alongside essays by a slate of fans, EXCAVATE! is a vivid, definitive record - an illumination of the dark corners of the Fall's wonderful and frightening world.

Tickets for this event also include a physical copy of the fantastic new book, delivered to your home address by Rough Trade. More product information can be found HERE > https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/bob-stanley/excavate-the-wonderful-and-frightening-world-of-the-fall
