9780141028668: Renegade: The Lives and Tales of Mark E. Smith

Reams of stuff have been written about me in the past, but never in my own words: this is the proper one’ Mark E. Smith Still going after thirty years, The Fall are one of the most distinctive British bands, their music — odd, spare, cranky and circular — an acknowledged influence on The Smiths, The Happy Mondays, Nirvana and Franz Ferdinand. And Mark E. Smith IS The Fall. For the first time we get to hear his full, candid take on the ups and downs of a band as notorious for its in-house fighting as for its great music; and on a life that has endured prison in America, drugs, bankruptcy, divorce and the often bleak results of a legendary thirst.

About the Author:

Mark E. Smith was a founder member of Manchester band The Fall in 1977, one of a great trio of bands (with Joy Division and the Buzzcocks) to come out of the city at that time. They have released a remarkable 79 albums and still continue to tour at a punishing rate. Having survived punk, 80s indie, Madchester and Britpop, they continue to have a near-religious following. When not on the road, Mark E Smith lives in Manchester.

Review:

'Possibly the funniest music book ever written'. --Andrew O'Hagan, The Observer
