Happy Smith-Day!

I'm reminded by an entertaining article on BBC4's Front Row that today is Mark E. Smith's 50th birthday. Happy birthday, Mark!

Of course, in the unlikely event that he actually read this, he'd probably tell me to fuck off, middle-class wanker. He'd be right, of course.

You can hear Stewart Lee, among others, talk about why the Fall are great via the BBC's splendid listen again facility.

(Lego Mark E. Smith from here.)

The wonderful, frightening world of Mark E. Smith! I love all the self-loathing paranoia MES generates, you middle-class wanker you. And thanks for the Front Row link.

Self loathing? Not at all - I'm comfortable with (or at least resigned to) my middle-classness, and wankerdom.

The paranoia's another matter entirely, of course.
