I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I shouldn't be all that stunned, but, fuck, I am. The guy lived a hard life of self-generated turmoil and it's amazing he lived as long as he did. And because of that it seemed like he'd live forever. He was working class through and through, never losing sight that art and life is work and discipline. He was also a psychopath and a monster, but the people he fucked over kept coming back. An insane bit of high quality unique.
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I feel that, had he lived, John Lennon would have loved Donkey Kong.

Fucking hell, this is rough. I thought I'd be listening to new Fall albums for the next thirty years. One of a kind. This is a huge loss.

My thoughts exactly. Never really got into them (I tried), but a legend nonetheless. Guy lived a thousand lifetimes.

Very nice piece from Dave Simpson in the Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/ ... are_btn_tw

Perfect anecdote from above:
In 1997, when I nervously conducted a “pop summit” for Melody Maker with Smith, the Beautiful South’s Paul Heaton and New Order’s Peter Hook, the three luminaries ended up trudging around Manchester because it turned out that Smith had been barred from almost all the city-centre pubs. It ended up in a drinking session that went on for hours, and through the haze I vividly remember Smith devouring poor Heaton. His crime? He confessed to liking the Fall.
Christ, it's such a cliché, but we're never going to see the likes of MES again, are we?

And because it is so wonderful (and frightening), my favourite Fall song:


edit: Also a late interview. I glumly laughed, if such a thing makes sense: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/ ... ad-from-me

Gutted :cry: A sad day

Sort of though this might happen ..they cancelled the uk tour in December 2017 and he didn’t look too good but was still doing the gigs in a wheelchair

Mark E Smith was a one-off can’t imagine seeing somebody like that again

Holy shitsnacks, this is a depressing thread.

Only a head-on car crash killing Sting and Phil Collins could possibly redeem it.

Possibly.
