2 CD digitally remastered Deluxe Edition of The Fall's 1996 studio album, including 12 bonus tracks. The Light User Syndrome is often acclaimed as the last classic-style Fall album, owing both to the presence of longtime personnel including Brix Smith, Karl Burns, Steve Hanley and Simon Wolstencroft, as well as it's guitar-driven post-punk sound. Leader Mark E. Smith is on top form, including one of his legendary "pre-cogs" in "Powder Keg." The centerpiece of the original album is the multipart "Interlude/Chilinism," an expansion of pre-album single "The Chiselers." The Fall claimed three spots on legendary DJ John Peel's 'Festive Fifty' chart of 1996's best songs, more than any other artist; "Cheetham Hill" led the way at #6, followed by "The Chiselers" at #13 and "Hostile" at #16. This 2 CD Deluxe Edition of The Light User Syndrome adds singles, B-sides, alternate versions and live recordings from 1996, all newly remastered by Andy Pearce, plus extensive sleeve notes with new interviews conducted by Daryl Easlea in March 2022.
