Saw them 3 times between 2012 and 2013 but regret not going over to London last year for that all-dayer they were playing with Girl Band, FOTL, Hookworms etc. Was just before he got ill and would have been nice to catch them one last time.


#12

Ah shitter


#13

Feels quite weird as they’ve been so reliably ever present and prolific for the last 40 years, it’s quite bizarre to think of The Fall being over.


#14

Oh no.
What an incredible lyricist, performer, songwriter, band leader, all of the things he did. Yeah. Unique.


#15

Really, really underrated lyrics. Went out on top form too, their last couple of albums were great.


#16

gonna have to give them a proper fucking listen once and for all now aren’t i? been something i’ve been putting off every time i look at their discography too

RIP

Barking mad oddity in the world of music and will be sorely missed

Gutted by this.

A shock, even though it’s not actually shocking. Amazing he was only 60, although he had looked 80 for some time. If you’ve read as many books about
The Fall as I have and know about the way he lived his life it’s pretty surprising he lasted this long, to be honest.

In reality MES was a pretty despicable man, but he was also one of the few true, indisputable geniuses in the history of British music. A titan and a true artist.

He (was) not appreciated.

I had heard that he didn’t have long left before Xmas. I’d forgotten until now.

yeah, there’s no one else remotely like him. dreadfully sad.
