New Pressing: The Fall — 458489

News / Preorders / June 28, 2018

A collection of singles from The Fall, originally released in 1990 and titled 458489, is getting reissued by Beggars (first time pressing is the U.S.). The release is on white vinyl.

The seventeen songs collected here come from The Fall’s Brix Smith era, aka “the golden era of Fall releases.” This is a perfect introduction to the band, and as legendary critic Robert Christgau said, it’s “The only Fall record any normal person need own.”

The reissue is coming out on Aug. 10.
