"DON'T CONFUSE YOURSELF WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS SOMETHING TO SAY...":

So says the man ("Hexen Definitive/Strife Knot," Perverted by Language, 1983), and I can hardly argue with him.  Indeed, I am lacking entirely for words of my own today, but the blog must go on, so allow me to indulge via YouTube embeds of one of the signal figures of my sorry existence, Mark Edward Smith and the mighty Fall...

1) Could this be the greatest music video of all time?  Were it not for Billy Squier's "Rock Me Tonite," I daresay there'd be no contest...




2) MES and the seriously California-sounding Brix interviewed on The Tube, 1985, plus live perfs (short for "performances") of two highlights from one of their finest albums, This Nation's Saving Grace...



3) Ah, what the hell, howzabout a whole playlist of Fall vids (I forget what that's short for)?  



4) Bizarre TV Appearance #1: MES on BBC's Newsnight the evening of John Peel's death...


5) Bizarre TV Appearance #2: MES reads the football results, 2007:


6) Bizarre TV Appearance #3: from the BBC3 series Ideal, MES in the role he was born to play...

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or
videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could certainly be one
of the very best in its field. Superb blog!
