Fall : Fall vs 2003

A bit like the crocodile. Only nastier. And without quite so many teeth.

Fall  : Fall vs 2003

Mark E Smith - sort of a cross between Victor Meldrew, Scrooge, the kid out of Kes and The Hobbit - licks no spittle and (unlike almost every other motherlover on the Manc 'scene') he has not one single dirty, rotten, stinking, filthy, fucking hippy bone in his entire curiously tortoise-like body. The best thing here is the 'Susan vs Youthclub' remix. Which sounds like a track that was left off the last but one Primal Scream album because it was just too damn good. Proving once again that Mark E Smith is a national treasure - a living punk rock fossil. A bit like the crocodile. Only nastier. And without quite so many teeth.
