Beggars Arkive announce the upcoming reissue of The Fall’s 10th studio album,
1988’s ‘The Frenz Experiment’. This expanded edition contains the original album, plus singles and B-Sides and extensive sleevenotes with new interviews. The notes
included contain brand new interviews conducted by Daryl Easley
in May 2020.
      “I was clearing out the other day and I came across a review of ‘Frenz Experiment’,
saying how this could have been great, how it could have been like T. Rex’s ‘Electric
Warrior’. I never attempted to make an album like T-Rex. I don’t see the point in
anybody trying to make an album like T-Rex, although people do. I don’t mind it
when journalists make fair comparisons, when they’ve done their homework. But
comparing ‘Frenz’ to ‘Electric Warrior’ is plain daft.” - Mark E Smith, Renegade: The
Lives And Tales Of Mark E Smith, 2008
