In the new Uncut, there's a few MES bits in their Bunnymen interview:

Where did you acquire the legendary overcoat?
"From Mark E Smith. I'd started seeing The Fall, who I thought were brilliant. Well, he lent me it and I never gave it back! Best coat I ever had"

"I saw The Fall at Erics, and there was this tramp, this gargoyle, giving it 'Psycho mafia, chh, chh'.I remember goin to me mate ' This is the best thing I've ever seen'. Apart from Bowie, maybe. Unusually, I went up and told him he was amazing. He went 'Thanks cocker, you make it all worthwhile'. We were friends. Years later I was tagged a Fall roadie, which I wasn't too pleased about. But Mark is one of the most intelligent blokes walking the planet"


"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." - Matthew 11:28 (KJV)
