'If you try that trick again. I'll break your fucking neck!'
^this is what he said to me
you would have posted that sooner
you guys are on the list
but not before mum
... they went over to chat with him and he ended up buying them whiskeys! LAD
However, they were on top form Wednesday night, there were moments when it looked like he was actually enjoying himself!
Best Fall gig I've been to in ages
the video from the gig is up, three songs by The Fall towards the end.
Great stuff, i was pretty gutted I missed both Dingus Khan and Bearsuit. Fucking work!
We overhear security/staff chatting about how ‘... he just won’t stop smoking’, ‘what are we going to do?’ , ‘what can we do?’
Turns out Mr Smith is in his dressing room, with his wife on the top floor of the TV Studio. He won’t stop smoking, and no-one knows how to handle this.
I saw this as a perfect opportunity to met Mr Smith.
I knocked on his door, pretending to be security.
At first I got a grunt, so I knocked again.
His wife called my bluff, ‘You’re not security’
I replied with ‘I am security, now open this door’
Mark tried to trick me, he said ‘..Well, come on in then’
I tried to open the door, but it was locked. (Well played Mark, but this isn’t over)
I persist, requesting that he opens the door so i could ‘have a word’
The door opens abruptly.
And i point my pointing finger towards him
I am now informing Mr Smith, rather firmly, that he is not supposed to be smoking in the building...
But after a split second he realises that I’m not who I was claiming to be...
That’s when he says it;; ‘If you try that trick again. I'll break your fucking neck!'
which i used to apologise for my previous prank
thank the band, and shake their hands.
(at this point marks wife was groaning 'GET OUT, GET OUT' repeatedly)
Mark said he didn't mind me pretending to be security after all.
He said that that i had 'his respect' for having the balls to do it.
He gave me two cans of becks vier
& laughed as i was hauled by my collar out of the van to the pavement.
best night ever
have a medal please...
trying to get him to upload the video
hopefully you'll be able to hear/see him
A while ago I was on the tube after a show, these absolutely rat arsed pricks got on, who proceeded to flail around and fall over when the tube moved, generally act like cocks and annoy people... then they shambled off the tube and one of them got back on to announce, quite soberly, that footage of their oh so hilarious antics that night could be seen tomorrow on youtube/... can't remember, twuntsfailingtodie. They didn't talk to Mark E Smith. But your story/this thread reminded me of this.
I was watching some YouTube clips of him when he was younger and he's different to how I expected. Speaks posher for a start and I dunno he looks exactly like this lad I know called Neil.
