We paid tribute to Mark E Smith on our latest show following the very sad news of his death.

Here are the tracks we played:

The Fall – Rowche Rumble
Skeletal Family – Passing Strangers
Motorhead – Ace of Spades
Talulah Gosh – Beatnik Boy
Field Music – Count It Up
Durutti Column – Red Shoes
Jack White – Connected By Love
Pigeon Detectives – This Is An Emergency
The Cranberries – Linger
Goat Girl – Scream
Young Cub – Fragile
Car Seat Headrest – Nervous Young Inhumans
Kindness – Lonely Long Lady
The Fall – The Classical
