 Stuff you bought cos of MES ; MES inspired shoppings

Post #1 - 17 Jan 2020, 23:02

I bought the entire works of Lisa Stansfield because she appeared on the same Coldcut LP as MES.

I bought the Beatles' Sgt Pepper album because The Fall covered A Day In The Life. The Beatles are fucking terrible obviously.

I have all ten remixes of Plug Myself In by D.O.S.E. featuring MES.

I bought the ultra rare Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu album with the song that mentions MES, The Fall and The North Will Rise Again.

Over to you, what if anything, have you bought with the slightest connection to MES?

What's that lyric on one of the more recent Fall albums where MES said "we had to wear masks"? :shrug:

Not sure I'll get this - my mask with a picture of worms coming out of a mouth is much better, and certainly helps social distancing - but just seen this - ... h-the-fall

If you're going to play it out of tune, then play it out of tune properly.

There is no Fall lyric to that effect.

The only lyrics that mention masks are these three - In The Park, Pittesville Direkt and Insult Song, and only the one that could be considered recent Fall product is the latter.

"Make us wear huckleberry masks and, uh, huckleberry masks
Especially the crap about the huckleberry masks"

"Why have they got those masks on?"

"We thought they wore masks "

It's very easy to research this sort of thing by visiting this site which quotes every lyric MES uttered throughout his career, which is in no way a work of extreme tedium and anal retention.

So use that in future rather than bothering me.
