the man, the myth, the legend
Hex Enduction Hour
"Blue cheese contains natural amphetamines. Why are students not informed about this?"
|2||Mumford & Sons|
Sigh No More
"We were playing a festival in Dublin the other week. There was this other group, like, warming up in the next sort of chalet, and they were terrible. I said, 'Shut them cunts up!' And they were still warming up, so I threw a bottle at them. The bands said, 'That's the Sons of Mumford' or something. 'They're number five in charts!' I just thought they were a load of retarded Irish folk singers."
Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
"It's just like music when you reckon it up. It's like listening to Pavement: it's just The Fall in 1985, isn't it? They haven't got an original idea in their heads."
"I used to be psychic, but I drank my way out of it."
Let It Be
"The Fall will always do all right; people always come and see us, they always pay their money. And you talk to 18 year old people, they haven't had any education, but they do know. They don't buy the NME anymore because they can read their mam's Sun and it's the same crap. It's my job to think about these things."
"The thing with me. I can't stick musicians. I've thought about this. I can't stand them, and being stuck in a studio with them I think that's my strength I can hear what they can't."
"They've got three different types of currency in Brazil. They have like a scumbag currency, ie people who work in shops. And they have a currency for people who are like lecturers, journalists. And then they have a rich man's currency. Maybe that's the way Britain is going. We're like India now, a part of the Third World."
"'If you're going to play it out of tune, then play it out of tune properly."
"He told me I didn't understand, that we were from the bleak industrial wastes of North England, or something, and that we didn't understand the Internet. I told him Fall fans invented the Internet. They were on there in 1982. "
