someone's going to publish a book of Mark E. Smith's verbiage, and THAT will make more people sit up & take notice of what he did with language....records by The Fall are not going to be appreciated beyond a fringe of fans.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm tim from champaign:

Tom, I just moved to the PNW in July. I took my 2 year old daughter to the Blackberry Fest in Port Orchard. We walked in to the sounds of a cover band playing when I realized they were playing The Sonics' 'The Witch'. They followed up with 'Pushin too Hard'. The band was a bunch of dudes in their sixties called Flashback. It was pretty great!
Avatar 12:54pm jt:

Ah Stuart, that won't be the first "The Fall" lyric book but it will be the last. .. and the best!
  12:57pm franco twinkie:

Sounds like you have your day pretty well mapped out LZS, I myself am going to walk down to Gus's on Haight to get some tomatillos to make a New Years pozole. The Toronado, eh? if time permits. I'd like to nip into The Groove Merchant at some point.
