"If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's a Fall gig"
Now your turn...
At the start of Totale's Turns:
"The difference between you and us is that we have brains
Because we are Northern white crap but we talk back
Back fucking back
The Mighty Fall
We are back"
you're gonna get it through the head
I just goggoled "mark e smith quotes" and got a coupole of pages. He's not said many exciting things (outside of the song lyrics)
was offered the fall as a band to put on at our uni.
he declined, saying that he couldnt be bothered to put up with mes' shit.
so if they offer again, i'm looking after him.
Something near enough to what he said....
Mark: Why did i work with them? Cuz I love 'em
IC: So do you wanna do some shows with us?
And I liked it so much that I still use it as often as I can. MES was reviewing the singles in the NME (don't know if they still do the 'guest reviewer' thing, this was in the early 90s) and a Verve single is played to Mark. Can't remember whether he liked but the end of the review when something like this:
NME: NME informs Mark that Richard Ashcroft believes he can fly (this was when Ashcroft was 'Mad' Richard)
MES: God help us if there's a war.
"get it together and stop showing offur" to 2 hapless Fall members who dared to swap sides of the stage during a gig
