Default RIP Mark E Smith

Hey guys, one of the best rock icon is dead yesterday.

Am I the only one who loved so much and still love both fantastic bands - The Pumpkins and The Fall?

Do you fuckin' know Mark E Smith?

No direct link with the Pumpkins, but with Joy Division, The Fall were one of the most important bands from Manchester. And maybe this post is the occasion for some of you to check this out.

RIP Mark E Smith.

yeah maybe it's the occasion for you to check out the netphoria music board once in a while, instead of assuming we're all uncultivated sad machine geeks

accounts from people, pretty good read

https://www.theguardian.com/music/20...f-mark-e-smith

"He came at everything from multi-dimensions and odd angles, outside every box. Forget about pushing the envelope – there was no envelope. Mark had this theory that there were seven original people in the world and that everybody else is a slate of one of those seven. I have to say that Mark was absolutely one of those seven."

-Brix

"Mark would pace around the studio turning the amps up and down, occasionally going over and randomly hitting the drummer’s cymbals, and chiding the players for not giving it 100%. He pushed the engineer to the edge by moving his carefully worked-out settings. There were echoes of James Brown in the way he conducted the band and pushed them to get what he wanted.

When it came to recording the vocal, we had the idea to set up a circle of microphones in the recording booth, all with slightly different settings. Mark found a megaphone in the studio and proceeded to wander around using that instead."

fucking lol, love stories like this

Only you.

Nobody in the forty year history of The Fall ever got to witness MES’s constant bullshit and occasional brilliance by the people around him (ie Brix) inspite of him.

You are the foretold prophet.

In the immortal words of Ru Paul, don’t fuck it up
