Mark E Smith murders red squirrels


#1

A mate bought me a ticket for his gig next week. Birthday present. Or, my mate didn’t want to go on his own. But…


#2

Although I am wondering whether or not he just made this up for a laugh. After all his years of boozing and smoking (and other stuff), I doubt he could catch a tortoise let alone a squirrel.


#3

PETA’s response is scathing:

Animals…should have the right not to be cruelly attacked and killed by a has-been singer.”

Take that Smithers!


#4

He’s apparently in very, very bad health. Friend saw them a few months ago and said the audience were visibly shocked at how ill he is and he only managed about a 35min set in a wheelchair.


#5

What a cunt.


#6

Couldn’t get a red. He just couldn’t get a red.


#7

This happened 9 years ago. Let it go geeeeeeeeeeze


#8

Yeah, true. He was never prosecuted by the RSPCA. We should let it go.


#9

Do you think maybe, just maybe he was taking shit, which he tends to do ?


#10

He’s on the mend apparently. According to Fall management.


#11

Squirrels can be intimidating. Just look at poor Steve Albini…

(almost posted this one by mistake):


#12

That’s a sad fucking song (the first one).


#13

Yup, he’s done (produced or recorded) THOUSANDS of them.


#14

Two hour set on his feet before that mind


#15

Yeah I’ve seen pictures of him in a wheelchair and in a sling with a swollen face. Still gigging though


#16

Aye, I think that was from their gig in Glasgow last month? Didn’t manage to go. Fair play to him soldiering on though…


#17

I shall report back on his London gig on the 30th. Though I’m sure I won’t be the only one there.


#18

Whereas relevant signers should absolutely have the right to cruelly attack and kill animals.


#19

Even when the article was written, he was still getting far bigger audiences than most bands that I generally go to see. If he was a “has-been” most bands that I like never were and never will be.


#20

he shouts something about this story at the end of Bury but it’s typically hard to work out what he’s actually on about
