Thank you kindly.
I once read an interview where Thurston said something like "Some people think we're complete wanks, like Mark E Smith for example."

I still don't quite believe Thurston when he claims they'd never listened to the Fall before their Peel session. He had a ticket to see Joy Division in NYC, of course he'd heard of the Fall.

why is that hard to believe?
I have never heard the Fall, and I liste to a LOT of music. don;t feel the need to listen to the Fall. Maye thurston felt this way?

maybe he was busy listening to actually grouindbreaking underground avant garde music? not some crank from the UK with cockrot teeth?

maybe mark E smith is a stupid fucking twat? maybe the Fall were just slightly better than the Jam or The Psychedelic Furs?

The ugly old manc bastard. He's just jealous because Thurston gets to shag Kim and be a demi-God.

Smith says and does many stupid things when he's drunk, which is of course, a whole lot of the time. And the one time I saw them live it was a disgrace.

However, you are seriously missing out if you truly never heard the Fall. They've been pretty hit and miss for decades, but early stuff like Live at the Witch Trials, Hex Enduction Hour, and the Wonderful and Frightenting World of... are every bit the "groundbreaking underground avant garde music" you speak of and have nothing in common with the pop new wave bands you mention. Instead they mined the middle ground somewhere between No Wave and Kraut Rock in an entirely individualist regional manner that made for some of the most challenging rock of it's day.

Seriously Rob, if you haven't ever heard them, you should do yourself a favor. Listening to Mark E. Smith's pissed prattling today, no, nobody should have to do that, but that has nothing to do with the Fall's recorded legacy (and their later output is still often significantly better than that by, say, the Butthole Surfers or Bob Mould).

I'm sure Thurston was B.S.ing when he said they hadn't heard the Fall when they covered those songs in '88. We are talking about one of the world's all time biggest record collectors and a legendary band here. I'm sure if any of us had Thurston's deadpan monotone voice and every two-bit indie-wanker journalist in the world asking us stupid questions, we'd tell some whoppers to see what they'd believe too.

The Fall have more great albums than Sonic Youth. Of course, The fall have like 50 albums, so...

Oh, it's that old English band thing of having, erm, strong opinions about other bands. Yawn.
