New mp3 o' the week - "Wings" by the Fall, one of the b-sides on the "Kicker Conspiracy" single (also available on the Palace of Swords Reversed compilation). This is a prime example of why the Fall circa 1979-1982 was the best band ever, in my view - a classic Mark E. Smith tale about time travel, the U.S. Civil War and air travel, backed by one of the great riffs of all time hammered with authority by the underrated Craig Scanlon and Paul Hanley.
