The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall
Lika underhållande och skruvad bok som bandet, dvs Mark E Smith, och deras musik var. En guldgruva att återvända till helt enkelt. Rekommenderas varmt.
'Mark E Smith provided me with an alternative education, looping me into Camus, and Arthur Machen, and William Blake, and Can, and dub and old garage punk and rock'n'roll.' - Stewart Lee '[A] cultural icon.' - Billy Bragg, on Mark E. Smith
