The Wonderful and Frightening World of Mark E. Smith

People either love or hate The Fall.
Here's a cool documentary on them, their enigmatic singer Mark E. Smith and more ex-members than Spinal Tap.
Check it out.
This is the first time that Mark E Smith has agreed to the story being told on television and he, along with many of the major players, takes us through this unique English rock ā€˜nā€™ roll story.

Their rollercoaster story is told alongside footage of their most recent and sadly now last Peel Session recorded in August at the legendary BBC Maida Vale studios.

There is also film of John playing out the session at Peel Acres a week later.

I, like others, am all a-twitter with anticipation of this being released on DVD. Hopefully it'll be a legit release, with extras and - one would hope- subtitles enabled for our favorite rumpled-looking Manc Bard.
