Trippin' and a Nickin'
I used to be one of those people who really thought the Fall were shit. When I was going through that stage where you learn about great British bands and consume everything you can and then become a self proclaimed authority on music - I was shunning the Fall.
Then I heard LCD soundsystem and felt reet sorry for old Mark e Smith. He puts the work in creating this twatish alter ego with a mid atlantic drawl and then some clued up new york punk-come-dj rips him right off.
I think 'totally wired' and 'losing my edge' are the best examples - It's a total scandal. Apparently Von Sudenfed was a project MES started just to rip off LCD. Good on him - he managed it, this sounds just like 'losing my edge'.
