I'm a British expat, living in SF and working in Silicon Valley since last year. Who knows when I'll be back in dear old Blighty! Still, there are worse places to be holed up indefinitely, that's for sure Smile The Fall thing came about because my best man knows the producer of the John Peel show (Peel died the year before we got married), who contacted them and asked them if they'd do it (they'd cancelled a gig at our wedding venue earlier in the year, so that was used as "leverage", I think) - amazingly, they said yes. And neither my soon-to-be wife nor I knew anything about it till they came on stage at our wedding reception. They proceeded to play an hour-long set in front of a (mostly) bemused audience! And all they wanted in return for the trouble was a few beers, a hotel room and their BFH Smile Totally and utterly bonkers...

Great story, thanks for sharing it. 

 

Did they play "Cary Grant's Wedding" for your first dance though?

Yes, he's got quite an illustrious track record (puns intended), as an artist, producer, collaborator and general go-to guy for all things avant-goes-mainstream, if that makes sense. 

His solo albums, to my ears, are all worth investigating. The Visitor is a pure instrumental and cuts between modish "background" music and occasional sweeps and surges towards his more left-field sonics. 

One of his most famous contributions is to Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot LP, as a sound manipulator-producer, twiddler of knobs. The Kid A of Americana, they dubbed it at the time in 2002. It's not a bad tag line for the album. One of their masterpieces I would say.
