Absolutely spot on. "Jane From Occupied Europe" is one of the strangest, most off-centred and utterly individual albums to emerge from that whole post-punk era. Closely followed by Martin Bramah's post-Fall group the Blue Orchids (whose only album, "The Greatest Hit", is tragically almost impossible to find now) and Yeah Yeah Noh, whose new "Best Of" (released last month) is post-Fall provincial English
cynicism at its very best, albeit laced with a tenderness that the Fall never possessed. I hope to review it for Unsung shortly if time permits. An absolute gem. All of these groups reveal that, far from being its natural enemy, true punk was closer to psychedelia in spirit than any nostalgic retro-genre like the Paisley Underground could ever be. Vive le confusion.
