awesome

here's an interview I did with Mark E Smith in the early 90s during my thankfully brief tenure as a rock and roll gonzoid journalist:

Of all of the heroes I've met over the years, MES was the least disappointing.

I believe MES is referring to the US tour of a few months back, midway through which he ended up firing his whole band, er group, minus his girlfriend/backing singer. My google-fu/pitchfork-fu has failed to dredge up anything meta about this, so you'll have to take my word for it.

Cool find though, thanks - I thought he did a pretty good job of it. But I'd have liked to hear more from him about Wigan Athletic's team play - "more than just 11 millionaires" - too bad the host changed the topic.

This guy is 49 years old? He looks 79.

Those scores are from last season.

This is from at least last football season, so he's not referring to the recent altercations of the last US tour. It's old, but still very cool.

Yeah, MES is going downhill fast, but that's because he's packed four times as much life into his 50 years than you or I will get out of 80.

And the last two albums are still amazing. Long live the Fall.

Oh you mean soccer!

Is there an actual link to a sound file somewhere?

Oh, I see. It's Real media. Are you kidding?

Ech, he just gets to do this because he knows people, and because he's the guy who did their theme song. It's all just a kicker conspiracy.

This is awesome.

Why weren't Swansea City playing that weekend? And little does he realise that Ray Stubbs is actually an escaped murdered fresh outta Strangeways.

Is that what those words were? I never in a million years would have guessed. It's tough without the liner notes.

For no discernable reason, this post reminds me of:

David St. Hubbins: I've been listening to the classics. I belong to a, uh, a great series. Um it's called the Namesake series of cassettes, and they send you the works of famous authors done by actors with the same last name. So I've got Denholm Elliott reading T.S. Eliot on this one...

Marty Dibergi: It's interesting.

David: Yes. I've got Danny Thomas doing "A Child's Christmas in Wales" by Dylan Thomas, and next month it's McLean Stevenson reads Robert Louis Stevenson. "Treasure Island" I believe.

Marty: That's uh...that's interesting. It's fascinating

David: There's also something, uh, there's a shorter works of Washington Irving read by someone called Dr. J.

Marty: That's Julius Erving.

David: Oh, there you go.

What a great site all round! I think this, is possibly the funniest video I have ever seen.

Which coincidentally enough, I found on the site.

Brilliant, I've been waiting to see this again for ages. I interviewed him a couple of months back, and was expecting a hard time of it, to say the least. (I know at least one hack who was ordered to punch Smith "so's I'll be sober enough to do an interview".) And he was a total sweetie. Maybe I caught him when he'd had just enough bitter, but not too much.
