You May Have Realized Something...

I really like the Fall.

Perverted by Mark E. (2004)

Fifteen years ago somebody put together a double disc compilation of people playing songs by and about Mark E. Smith. This is the result. Not everything works, but top honors go to Chris Knox for taking on "Hip Priest".

Pour yourself a pint or two and raise a glass in memory and tribute to the man, the myth, the legend of MES.

Because this file card in a Seattle record store sums everything up simply.

(On a side note as of the day before this post appears I will have managed to keep this farce going for half a fucking decade and I'm still not even close to having all my records digitized. I actually have more to do than when I started. sigh.)
