This one really stings. The Fall were my favorite band for the longest time, only recently supplanted by Johnny Dowd. Deepest sympathy to MES' family, friends and fans of his music.

This is the worst and most personal one in some time. Since Reed, perhaps. I spent my twenties under the spell of Hex Enduction Hour and TNSG and Room to Live and Grotesque and... and... and...

Goddammit.

Well, when you will fully choose to not promote your band this is what happens. All of this despite your obvious talent.

I don't think that is true, my understanding is that he was very hardworking and generally frustrated with lack of success

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:

Quote:
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:

He hadn't been in good health. I'm kind of surprised he lasted this long. He came from a chemical generation, its amazing he lasted this long. He came from the same 1970's chemical culture of Motorhead and the Ramones that popped speed and ludes and acid and any number of pills, all washed down with an unending amount of alcohol.

I made up a list of all the times I saw the Fall, that I could remember, I managed to see them about 10 times. I still don't know how I talked me mum into letting me drive to Boston from Maine when I was in high school to see their matinee at The Rat. They were incredible that day - I think we got a 30 minute Smile - but in 1993 they played Slim's in San Francisco on the Infotainment Scan tour that knocked me out and I went back the next night. I used to tell people HEx INduction Hour was my favorite all time album, I don't know if that that is still not true.

Mark leaves an incredible body of work. The Fall will be forgotten.

Funny, to me, thinking he was only 60 caused a great surprise.
I knew he had been drinking a lot, yet I didn't expect him to be a human being, that is weak enough to be in bad condition.

The last time i saw The Fall was at a festival in London in 2010. I went up the front, then came back to my friends who had been doing something else, and asked "so what did you think" and one of them said "That is the worst thing i have ever heard". And i thought "YES!".
I may blab more about my Fall experiences in the next few days, because The Fall were the best of the best
