When Big Joan Sets Up 25/3/10 – A Reading from The Book of M.E.S.


Mark E Smith

And for two years they did wander in the wilderness without any new Fall records until there came to pass a new single – and lo’ it was ace. And the children of Bradford came forth saying “Where hast thou been , O grumpy Mancunian bard of non sequiturs?” and he did say unto them “I’ve got milk on my elbow – ah!” – and they did understand that he was a genius and a bit bonkers as well.

And they saw that this was good and went off to beseech the almighty Domino Records to bestow upon them a copy of the new LP and they did so in a nice way because they did get loads of free records and they did not want to looketh a gift horse in the mouth. And as they went they sayeth unto themselves “That’s what happens when you get your biblical references off Wikipedia”

And there came forth a great howling and gnashing of teeth (from those who had teeth to gnash) and it sounded like this.
