Hex Enduction Hour is the fourth studio album by The Fall, recorded in 1981 for Kamera
Hex Enduction Hour is the fourth studio album by the English post-punk band the Fall. Released on 8 March 1982, it builds on the low-fidelity production values and caustic lyrical content of their earlier recordings, and features a two-drummer lineup. Frontman Mark E. Smith establishes an abrasive Northern aesthetic built in part from the 20th century literary traditions of kitchen sink realism and magic realism
Often considered The Fall’s masterpiece, Hex Enduction Hour is approximately an hour of thundering post-punk fury. It occasionally features dual-drummer polyrhythms, simplistic but powerful ets-The Stooges guitar work, Sister Ray style keyboard riffage, tape-loop manipulation, and of course, the often imitated but never duplicated surrealistic and confrontational lyrics, and Mancunian-accented vocals of frontman Mark E. Smith. It all adds up to a sound that both defined and was on a completely different planet from post-punk. Hex Enduction Hour Q&A.

The Fall already had a slew of brilliant records under their belt by the time Hex Enduction Hour emerged, but when it did, the result was a bona fide classic on all fronts. Honing the vicious edge of his lyrics to a new level of ability, Smith led his by-now seasoned band - at this time sporting the double-drumming lineup of Paul Hanley and Karl Burns - to create a literal hour's worth of entertaining bile

Due to his disillusionment with the music industry, Fall leader/vocalist (and only constant member) Mark E Smith set out to record ‘Hex Enduction Hour’ which he envisioned to be the groups last album. Partly recorded in Iceland; there is certainly something quite bleak and cold about ‘Hex’. It is a complex gem of intense alternative music.
