Last month, frontman of icons The Fall Mark E. Smith passed away, aged 60.
Now, Andrew Savage of Parquet Courts has released a tribute to the late legend in the form of a cover of the band’s track ‘Frightened’. It originally appeared on The Fall’s 1979 debut album ‘Live At The Witch Trials’. Andrew’s version is a five-minute ripper filled with classic, vintage organ melodies, clashing percussion and semi-spoken lyrics.
Back in December, we caught up with Parquet Courts to discuss their raw, hardcore-influenced new album. Andrew said: “I wanted to get back to writing raw songs. Things you can dance to and things I could harness my anger into, which is plentiful being in America right now”. Catch up with the full interview here.
Listen to A. Savage’s version of ‘Frightened’ below.
