The Fall - RIP

The wonderful and frightening world of the Fall, indeed. By the time you've finished reading this, there will undoubtedly be a new Fall record. They've darn-near put out an album a year since 1979. Some are completely mediocre... except for that one track that is pure magic. And, thus, it's very hard to simply recommend one single album. You're going to have to dig.

EDIT: RIP Mark E Smith

Modern Eon

Modern Eon's lone full length album from 1981 never made the transition to the digital world. It's very post-punk with a bit of early shoegaze sound.  From my vinyl rip, tried to clean it up as best I could.

Aztec Camera

Aztec Camera were essentially a vehicle for Roddy Frame. They scored some big hits in the UK, but only made a minor splash in America, via college radio.  Do check out the final AC album Frestonia, one of the forgotten gems of the '90s.
