Mark E Smith's been a bit over-interviewed hasn't he... I decided to go with Martin Bramah who had a great story. As did Una Baines but it was more shapeless as a conversation - done over two phone calls - so I went with the Martin chat.
You remember what una had to say?

well i have the transcript somewhere or other - but yes, it was similar stories about the Fall's early days when they were as much a poetry group as a music group.... the drugs... Mark E's magnetic quality.... Kay Carroll the friend of Una's who gradually took over... then the Blue Orchids years

i also spoke to Tony Friel, or rather email interviewed, but it was a much terser transmission -

aren't you American? what's with this faux-brit "knob" and "uni" bullshit? no actual American says either of those words, ever.
I thought uni was a universal abbreviation for university online. And knob feels good to type god dammit

Leo is mad because he was probably palling it up with Vega in th 70's. Groaining about the yuppies in Warhols highrise apartment before doing 'anti capitalist' action at cbgb's

it's a very common name

that's probably the Digital Spy Simon Reynolds, who writes about movies and occasionally very mainstream pop stars

my favorite namesake is the SR who is the UK's leading showjumping commentator (has very trenchant opinions, seemingly)

and then there is Simon Reynolds the vicar who ran off with the church fund, all the plate money from the congregation. got done for it and was being prosecuted, and in the lunch break in his trial, did a runner and fled to the Continent.
It's clever, cos reading that back, you never actually categorically deny that it is you do you?

Code switching isn't it? Basically if you spend a lot of time hanging around with cooler, smarter people that you look up to, then inevitably you end up taking on some of the qualities of their speech.
