Now;

I've had cancer for the past three years. Sometimes tired, sometimes laid low, most times OK. One thing that I used The Fall for was something to look forward to and to aim at. An album, a gig.

I've decided to switch my allegiance to PIL.

They play in stupid venues too.

Re: RIP

A major touchstone in my life is gone, the albums and concerts are like the yearly events that I used to mark my own passage thru' this daft experience. They also brought to many many places that I simply would not have travelled to and all those Fall fans who I've met in all those cities in Europe....

Strongest memory from 2017

I've spent the last 18 months with cancer but my memory of 2017 is being in Manchester and seeing the MEN lit up by searchlights and being told by a police officer that a load of children had been killed there. Returning home after The Fall gig in Leeds earlier that night. Poor parents, imagine thei...

Awright, MES?

I hope that you're OK.
Had a rough few months healthwise myself and wish you all the best ya twisty fuckwitty non-poet but who is a real poet (probably).
It's hard to give a tiny fuck about anything when you might be dying.

Am I the only one worried?

Re: Gigs at Baby's All Right, Brooklyn, NYC, September

If I had a dollar for every time The Fall did not show up .... I'd have about ten dollars.
I hope that you find a legit ticket.
The Fall live is so low key and yet so extraordinary...

Re: SHIT you're looking forward to

Stiff Little Fingers were brilliant. The (half) Stranglers played a very punk Black and White set and who can't enjoy The Ruts 3 hits? I missed The Outcasts. My friend got so drunk and stoned that I had to stay straight to look after her, she described her behaviour the next morning as "pinballing"....
