Renegade. The Lives and Tales of Mark E. Smith
Black cloth boards with orange lettering to spine. In fine photographic dust jacket. With full-page photographs by Tom Sheehan interspersed throughout the text. First printing. *** Mark E. Smith (5 March 1957 – 24 January 2018) was the cantankerous front man and leader of the post-punk band The Fall, an original lyricist and inspiration to many post-punk imitators. His autobiography is an uncensured account of the music business and gives a good insight in what it’s like to be in a semi-successful band. It’s written with a great deal of humour, but it’s bad tempered and angry at the same time, with intelligent musings about modern life (is rubbish). Mark E. Smith’s rants have been beautifully rendered by ghost writer Austin Collins.
