“Mark Smith defined description, and yet we all try. Genius, poet, punk, pioneer, mad bastard. All of that but none of that. 

Mark inspired all of us in The Fall to let go of preconceived notions of what a rock musician was… Nothing was contrived and nothing was insincere… For Mark E Smith, there were no rules.

Raise a glass, goodbye to my friend, soulmate and partner.”

Brix Smith
(Brix & The Extricated, former Fall guitarist & former Mrs Smith)
