Fall The - This Nations Saving Grace 12inch
Out of Stock
This Nation's Saving Grace is an LP by The Fall, originally released in 1985. It reached number 54 in the UK charts. At the beginning of 1985, the group were without Paul Hanley, who left after completing the group's 1984 tour, as well as his brother, bassist Steve Hanley who took four months paternity leave from the band in the early part of the year. A tour was undertaken and the group recorded the double a-sided single "Couldn't Get Ahead / Rollin' Dany" and subsequent single "Cruiser's Creek" with Simon Rogers standing in on bass. The group had met Rogers through ballet dancer Michael Clark and he had already co-produced the early recordings of Brix Smith's other group The Adult Net. When Hanley returned, Rogers remained with the group, switching to guitar and keyboards - Hanley's return was marked with the inscription "S Hanley! He's Back" on the run-out groove of side one of the album.
