Mark E Smith, the legendary front man of the Fall died today. They've been going about the same time as U2. I don't know how well the Fall were known outside of the UK, certainly had a cult following. They had a big impact on me growing up in the 80s and were regulars on the John Peel show. A lot of their stuff admittedly is quite hard to listen to, not conventional. But one of music's real eccentrics, a real character and a sad loss. RIP.

Only hardcore music fans in North America would know about Mark E Smith. Or of British ancestry. I came to The Fall through Sonic Youth 4 Tunna Brix EP.
