#24--my favorite of all poets is Parra. No one really comes close to his irrepressibility or his talent for subversion. Not that I have anything against Neruda or Mistral (both Chilean as well) who both won the Nobel prize but IMO Parra beats them both easily.

Jan 25, 2018, 10:55am

#26--and so ends the Fall--one of the best bands ever. Smith was its singer/songwriter and over the past 40 or so years if you were a musician from the Manchester England area there was probably a 50% chance that you played in the Fall at one time or another. Mark once quipping that 'if it's me and your grandmother on the bongos, it's the Fall' or words to that effect. Fucked up for me--it's Parra one day and Smith the next.

Check out Steven Hanley's The Big Midweek---a great read about them.
