Still a woman beater too.


#3

is he ?


#4

Apparently


#5

ah right. Apparently. Fact then.


#6

Don’t know about him being a woman beater, I though you were responding to OP.
He’s a prick for sure - read the Brix Smith book & he seems to be a lost cause.

Sort of surprised he’s not older. He’s looked around 60 for about 20 years now.

I replied to roastthemonaspit. Yeah I’ve read quite a few fall books, including Brix’s. he’s most definately an unpleasant man at times by all accounts. Just don’t like the rumour presented as fact stuff we get a lot on dis…

Just seen Chadders review of this above mine. Equally valid tbh tbf…


#13

As chadders mentions, The Big Midweek. It’s by far the best one I’ve read. Really enjoyed The Fallen by Dave Simpson as well.


#14

60? Haha loser


#15

didn’t know Krishnan Guru-Murthy is a Fall fan


#16

yeah these are both great. haven’t read Brix’s yet but heard her read a couple of chapters from it


#17

I’m genuinely amazed that he’s made it to 60. That guy’s insides must be a festering mess.


#18

so what


#19

The Fallen is the best book on them I think!
