25 January 2018
This episode was actually planned to be featured in a couple of weeks. But by now all fans definitely now that Mark E. Smith, the wayward mastermind of incomparable Manchester post-punk outlaws THE FALL died yesterday – 24 January – only 60. Smith was no less than a troubled genius.

of this once in a lifetime artist and the countless brill line-ups of his band here are not the 15 usual picks, but 25 standout eruptions. R.I.P. Psycho Mafia Smith.
