Success being success in his own terms as it always should be, of course. This is what Kieron Melling, drummer in The Fall's last lineup, said last year, around the time New Facts Emerge was released:

I wanted to do "Totally Wired" when I got in the band, 'cos I like the song. I think we did it once in Glasgow I'd been going on about it, and Mark said, 'Fuck it, let's just do it,' but he just won't entertain doing any of the bigger stuff. Anything that were popular, he just won't do it. It's the giving somebody praise thing, I don't think he likes it he prefers to be unliked.

Incidentally, that last lineup lasted for eleven years, an eternity in Falltime. (Elena Poulou left in 2016, but what's 12 months or so ). Here's a convenient timeline courtesy of Wikipedia:
