Manchester Literature Festival
‘This is the world of the Fall. This is the Fall-shaped hole they punched in the wall.’ In their innovative book Excavate! The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall, musician and author, Bob Stanley, artist and author, Tessa Norton and their varied contributors explore Prestwich, repetition, politics, literature, class, amateurism, working men’s clubs, football and education alongside album artwork, gig posters and fan art. All the things that made The Fall ‘a dazzling city founded on speculative fiction, work ethics and northern architecture’. Bob and Tessa also discuss their own relationship with The Fall along with host, writer Adelle Stripe (Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile).
Presented in partnership with Faber Members.
