Nothing on here about the gig that finished about an hour and a half ago. So I'm listening to New Facts Emerge on Spotify.

Very little on Twitter. Various expressions of concerns re MES's health.

Social media posts suggest MES spent the majority of the gig either off stage or behind a speaker. And Pam Van Damned did some crowd warming-up?

I was thrilled that my son won the tickets, I had to pinch myself .... and on arrival to be given a couple of tokens each for two drinks apiece, on the house, was further joy. Crowd were a mix, loads of young people, yes them! Quite a few of our generation. Ran into a couple of fofers. Well you do, don't you?

As soon as they came on stage, it was obvious that MES did not look his usual self, but his voice was fine and so there was really no indication that it would become a bit of a car crash event in some ways. I don't know, perhaps self consciousness about his looks, or tired legs, general illness, but MES ducked down from pretty early on, at one point all I could see was his hair, thin, flapping in a fan- breeze. Then invisibility, well, I couldn't see him. Group were spot on, driving the machine, safe hands, been here before, seen it before, you know they can steer the bus.

I don't know why Pam came on stage, was it to 'help'? There were a lot of hand signals to 'up' the crowd, and much strutting about the stage like a cross between Tina Turner and Rod Stewart. A cheerleader without the ra ra skirt. The principal boy in panto. The band played on, skinny rats dressed in 'black' to Pam's pea-cocking. Pam hand slapping the audience,doing little theatrical stares, taking the mic and doing a sort of MES impersonation. I don't know what the group thought, they gave nothing away.

Some people there clearly enjoyed her role, but others not. Lots of things with The Fall have taken some getting used to when changes come, I don't know if Pam is in the group or not, but she told us at the end, after a hurried encore, that she was Mark's girlfriend, in a sort of 'get used to it' type way. Pam didn't seem to be able to stop herself from berating the audience as the music ended and folk fled the club. I can't remember verbatim (six pints of Dead Donkey) but the gist was, 'You might not have got what you expected but you got something' and 'That was worth a fiver' something about London audiences and I think maybe a piss off, get lost, style of parting shot. This was my worry, not the verbal stuff .... but the domination. Maybe there'll be a name change soon to 'Pam's New Fall'.

Personally I think it up to the audience to show appreciation or not, they've a right to enjoy what is offered, and an equal right to be unimpressed. I enjoyed myself, but then, I mostly do.

See Little Frank for set.

Sounds like a load of wank.

Why does each new girlfriend have to turn into Linda McCartney? :D

OK, we know Brix had genuine talent, but the rest. C'mon.

I went into you tube this morning to see if there was any film of last night show and noticed that there were quite a few options for a 'live' streaming of it.

Does anybody know anything about this ?

Perhaps this may explain Mark's reticence to appear on stage if he has a medical problem.

At the last 'Fred Perry' Fall gig, at The Garage, there was some decent quality footage released not long after the gig. I did see a young fellah with a hand held camera, so it's possible something will appear.

A brave move booking a New York residency if he's as frail as eye witnesses reported.

In The Fall tradition though - American tours are where it all kicks off..

What on earth is up with him? Seriously?

Like, what kind of medical condition would cause bloating, boils etC?

Unless its medication he's on, strong antibiotics or something?

Worrying to say the least.

almost certainly a scam, nearly fell for myself last year

a clue is that the url on redirect isn't yt etc


few venues would allow live streaming & even if they did a ppv fingy would be well publicised here beforehand

Yes agreed. Feeling a bit sad about this. Can't help but wonder how serious it is.
