Subject: Mark E. Smith
Fearless Leader says he, too, thinks Pat was being disingenuous when he denied
"SMS" is about the Fall. I agree, as I had very much the same conversation with
Pat about two years ago. However, there's one thing that seems mista'en in the
WWW excerpt David cites:
Accordingly, the combination of the Fall title
and Smith's strangled cries of "McGinty!" on the
record did make for rather spooky listening, but I
believe it's just a co-incidence.
Actually, Smith's rant isn't all that strangled:
McGinty thought he could fool the fall
with his imitation speeds
But he could not know the psychic nose. . . .
Damn. Should've asked Brixie Smith about that when she was last in Chi.
Last word: Anyone who hasn't should check out Fall's _458489 A-Sides_, an
ace retrospective that's just been reissued. Delightfully warped pop.
