Today, 4 years ago, Mark E. Smith, singer of legendary post-punk band The Fall died, aged 60

24th of January 2022, 08:00

Mark E. Smith was born in the UK 1957 and founded The Fall in 1976 together with Tony Friel and Martin Bramah. Smith remained the only original member of the band to this day. During the 38 years of their existence, the group seemed to be more of a pigeon-loft than a coherent rock band as Smith hired and sacked musicians as if it was a sweet delight, so more than sixty musicians passed through The Fall.

It was already clear for a while now the singer had serious health problems since a number of planned shows were cancelled late 2017. Still, he didn’t seem willing to give up and even performed one of their latest shows in a wheelchair.

One of the hallmarks of The Fall was the unmistakable voice and manner of singing by Mark E. Smith. He rather mumbled his lyrics through the microphone than he was singing and therefore it was not always clear what he was singing.

The Fall was a very productive band, releasing nearly 80 albums in less than 39 years. Probably one of their most influential albums is the Hex Enduction Hour, released in 1982. To date, the band has been cited as a source of inspiration by musicians around the world.

A message on The Fall website was posted on January 24, 2018 …

RIP Chief - "The Only Band in the world"

Mark E. Smith, zanger van de legendarische post-punk The Fall overleden op 60 jarige leeftijd

Mark E. Smith werd geboren in UK in 1957 en richtte The Fall op in 1976 samen met Tony Friel en Martin Bramah. Smith bleef het enige origineel lid van de band tot op vandaag. Gedurende de 38 jaar van hun bestaan leek de groep ook eerder op een duiventil dan op een coherente rock groep want Smith huurde en ontsloeg muzikanten alsof het een lieve lust was, meer dan zestig muzikanten passeerden zo de revue bij The Fall.

Het ging al een tijdje niet goed met de gezondheid van de zanger en mede daardoor werden een aantal geplande shows in het na jaar van 2017 afgelast. Toch wist hij van geen ophouden en werkte zelf een show af gezeten in een rolstoel.

Eén van de kenmerken van The Fall was het onmiskenbare stemgeluid en manier van zingen van Mark E. Smith. Hij mompelde zijn teksten eerder door de microfoon en daardoor was niet altijd duidelijk wat hij precies zong.

The Fall was een zeer productive groep en bracht bijna 80 albums uit op nog geen 39 jaar tijd. Waarschijnlijk één van hun meest invloedrijke albums is het in 1982 verschenen Hex Enduction Hour. Tot op heden wordt de band aangehaald als inspiratiebron door muzikanten over heel de wereld.

Op de The Fall website werd er op 24 Januari gepost - RIP Chief - “The Only Band in the world”
