The Fall released many recordings following their inception in 1976, often inviting use of the tag 'prolific'. Their first release as a group was the EP Bingo-Master's Break Out! (1978), and they released a studio album at a rate of almost one a year from their debut Live at the Witch Trials in 1979 to their final album New Facts Emerge in 2017.
