EX-Manchester docker Mark E Smith has never been one for crowd-pleasing - but perhaps that’s what makes The Fall such an interesting live proposition.

Since the band’s 1979 inception, close to 50 members have come and gone, the majority sacked by its notoriously confrontational frontman, who is a true enigma among adoring rock journos, musicians and indie fans alike.

Tonight, former Edinburgh resident Smith returns to the Capital with the latest incarnation of his band, and is set to give fans a sneak peek of forthcoming release Ersatz GB - remarkably The Fall’s 29th album.

The Fall, HMV Picture House, Lothian Road, tonight, 7pm, £19.50, 0843-221 0100
