Synopsis

'If it's me and your granny on bongos, it's The Fall.'

As legendary frontman of post-punk outfit The Fall, Mark E. Smith was known as much for his mercurial temperament as his exceptional musical talent. Famous for his singular way with words both onstage and off, his road to the music hall of fame was paved with brilliant one-liners, eccentric behaviour, and the dozens of members of The Fall he ejected along the way.

Collecting his wit and wisdom for the first time and featuring an introduction from Stuart Maconie, Messing Up the Paintwork is a tribute to a musical icon described as 'untouchably cool' (Lauren Laverne), an 'uncompromising musical maverick' (Tim Burgess) and 'a man shouting from a prison window' (Frank Skinner). And it's a book for the fans who will miss him terribly.
