Mark E. Smith Brief Biography

Mark E. Smith
Mark Edward Smith (5 March 1957 - 24 January 2018) was an English singer, songwriter and musician. He was the lead singer, lyricist and only constant member of the post-punk group the Fall.

Smith formed the Fall in 1976 after attending a Sex Pistols gig at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in June that year. The band went on to feature over 60 different members, and released 32 studio albums. Smith's lyrical style has been described as consisting of "grim, dark and ironic humour". Notoriously difficult to work with, he has been characterised as a "strange kind of antimatter national treasure", and an enduring cult icon. In 2018, he died at the age of 60 after a long illness.
