Dragnet is the second studio album by English post-punk band the Fall. It was released on 26 October 1979, through record label Step-Forward. Having come out less than eight months after its predecessor, Dragnet established at an early stage two key patterns of the group's work: that of high productivity and that of a regular turnover of group members.

The Fall's second album was also one of the hardest to find in later years, getting only sporadic represses and reissues. Though some opinions would have it that there was a good reason for this - namely, that it was something of a dead end sonically - it's not as bad as all that. There's also another key reason to rate Dragnet - it's the debut album appearance of Craig Scanlon, who picked up on the off-kilter rock sensibilities of the initial lineup and translated it into amazing guitar work. No less important is the appearance of Steve Hanley, who would soon take over fully on bass from Marc Riley, who in turn moved to guitar, forming one heck of a partnership with Scanlon that would last until Riley jumped ship to form the Creepers.

Everything about draGnet is difficult. Songs coast in on earworm riffs and then plug on without modulation until that instant pleasure starts losing all meaning
