We say goodbye to the maestro Mark E Smith. Thank you for everything!
He graciously did one song with us, Not Clean, which was on In Cod We Trust back in 2006. The song got also chosen as song of the year.
We had been chasing Mark for a while, but einar knew him since 1981 when The Fall played in Iceland. Later Mark invited Einar’s band Purrkur Pillnikk to tour with the Fall in the UK. He managed to track him down in Manchester, of course, and due to budget Curver was sent out to Manchester to record Mark. And it worked.
