The Fall - Fiery Jack


On this date in 1980, The Fall released their fourth single, "Fiery Jack". It was backed by "2nd Dark Age" and "Psykick Dancehall #2". The A side appeared on their third album, Totale's Turns. All three tracks were added as bonus tracks to their second album, Dragnet, when it was re-released on CD. The Manchester, England post-punk band still records and performs but it has had just one constant member, frontman Mark E. Smith.
