Flipflop's Final Straw

Mark E. Smith of the Fall has popped his clogs.

The Fall and Jools Holland

"The Fall are on Jools Holland's show next week.
Mark E Smith is the only artist in the history
of the show to have a clause in his contract
inserted to state that Jools will not play
boogie-woogie piano over any of his songs.

He also delayed filming several times by wandering in and out of shot, calling Robert Plant 'cunty' and just generally behaving like what he is, The Last Great Englishman…..Robert Plant turned up in a bullet-proof limo, the Fall were transported by Salford Van Hire…oh and the Go-Team kept fucking up much to the annoyance of all."

What can I say? Legend.


If Flipflop doesn't contribute to this obit then he's clearly become a cunt.

Forty years of rock and boogie woogie haven't left a mark on him.

Yeah, sad news. Saw him in a dive in Toronto in the 80's, the slam dancing got out of hand and the cops were called. "My New House" still gets in my head....
