Mark E Smith RIP

A news flash has just come up on my phone advising as to the sad but probably not entirely unexpected death of Mark E Smith.
Other bigger fans than  me will no doubt post poignant and eloquent tributes and  I suspect that the blogsphere and social media may well go into meltdown.
In the meantime I'll leave you with a couple of numbers from the Groupe

Rest easy Mark

The Fall - Totally Wired

The Fall -Spoilt Victorian Child


  1. So I was sitting in a pub in Guernsey around 7pm and two guys were talking about this and I thought it was a joke or something. So I check the news. Nothing. So I decided to check the blogs. Nothing. So I shrug drink up and walk back to my hotel. To find its true. Shit. Double shit in fact.

  2. Just arrived home to the news. To quote Swc, shit.

  3. I was in the middle of a long and involved work call and BBC news flashed the news on to my phone sitting just below my computer screen. I put my self on mute and said "shit" under my breath to myself.

  4. Seems we were typing up similar style posts at the same time CC.

    Will be a really sore one for Drew.
