THis has got to be a wind up but if not it will be best telly ever
When the younger bits of PlayLouder were first getting into The Fall you'd be lucky to find 50 souls at their gigs -- now Mark E Smith's found himself so popular he's been asked to read the footy scores on BBC1. A longtime football fan and supporter of Manchester City, Smith will read the results on BBC One's Final Score television programme on Saturday, November 19th [now confirmed as the correct date -ed.].
A Fall spokesperson said that "the programme's producer's are obviously big fans of the famous left fielder."
The band's 'Theme From Sparta FC' has recently been used as the title music on television football coverage gubbins.
