The Fall - Portugal
Jan 28, 2018, 02:23
Mark E Smith gave his band carte blanche to come up with a tune on their own some time in 2003. The result is a genius track Portugal.

I remember John Peel (I think) playing it a fair bit and that I was disappointed it wasn't on any release I could find. Tom Robinson played it tonight - it's the last (unlisted) song here, with an excerpt of Tom's interview with MES preceeding it.

I tracked it down in my collection as it's on the American version of The Real New Fall LP Formerly Country On The Click from 2003.

Interesting notes under the lyrics here.

Youtube here.

God, I love this tune!!!
