Mark E Smith

Notebook out plagiarists! Pay tribute to The Fall’s Mark E Smith by coming along to our special celebration. Bring your favourite Fall lyrics to read, or share your original poems/short stories – or your personal stories – about Mark and The Fall, or anything you like in a similar vein… could be work by writers that influenced Mark, for example… or all of the above – or simply come along to listen and applaud! FIND THIS EVENT ON FACEBOOK

If you want to read a Fall lyric, might we suggest you bring a few just in case someone else has grabbed your first choice? This website is a great source for Fall lyrics http://annotatedfall.doomby.com/pages/the-annotated-lyrics/ 

ALSO Tom Clayton from Penguin Books will be reading from ‘Messing Up The Paintwork’ and there’ll be books for sale too! Come early and meet the author of ‘Secret Unusual London Bars & Restaurants’ (@Secret_Unusual) who has been uncovering some of Mark E Smith’s drinking spots when he hit the South.

We’ll print off Fall lyrics in case you haven’t brought any and there’ll be loads of Fall music too. It promises to be an emotional night. FREE – just turn up and sign up 7-7.30pm on the night if you would like to perform.
