The Fall Sign to Domino

    The Fall, the rotating musicians that help Mark E. Smith pay his bar tabs, have announced they have signed to Domino, making them label mates with the likes of Dirty Projectors, Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys, and Animal Collective. Smith, who is so punk, he performed with a broken hip, and company are reportedly going to to saunter into a studio later this year to work on a record, which may or may not be done by the end of 2009. Who would have thought that at this late juncture, a band like the Fall could still get picked up by a bigger indie? [Pitchfork]
