'The place I made the purchase no longer exists'


A few readers have kindly drawn my attention to this: Mark E Smith reading Lovecraft. This is apt, because my presentation at the conference on The Fall at Salford in May will be entitled ‘The Place I Made The Purchase No Longer Exists: The Fall and The Weird’. It will focus on some of the songs (‘Various Times’, ‘Wings’, etc) that didn’t really feature in my posts on The Fall’s pulp modernism.
