A musical AND a film about Queen and not one show about The Fall? That's bobbins!

My show (winner of Greater Manchester Spirit Of The Fringe, 2021) is one man’s attempt to celebrate the work of the late writer, musician and working-class genius, Salford's Mark E. Smith and his group The Fall. It’s a ridiculous ask, the equivalent of trying to do justice to Mozart. Mark E. Smith was comfortably larger than life, with bacchanalian tales to match but the art is always bigger than the artist and so, OK, he was maybe ‘no Mandela’ but could Mandela have ever given us a tune as banging as say, ‘Spoilt Victorian Child’? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RI4O4pJ0o8&ab_channel=CherryRedRecords

An atheist now and my early faith years were happy ones but these days I evangelize the life-changing ‘revelation of The Fall’ - but where do I go now that The Fall no longer share this godless universe with me?

Fall fandom has often been dismissed as the ‘cult of The Fall’ but this music is too divine to belong to a cult! The Fall should be a broad church! You don’t need to love The Fall to enjoy this show, you just need to love music. There will be love, music and laughter ‘come one, come all to the Church Of The Fall’ (FREE PINT FOR EX-FALL MEMBERS). Stephen G. Titley is a writer, standup, actor, singer and (dad) dancer - http://stephen-g-titley.co.uk/ or @stevecomic @COTFShow or @ChurchOfTheFall on Twitter.
