Utilising a multi-textual approach which weaves in elements of biography, autobiography, fiction and faction, I shall endeavour to explain how Mark E Smith constructs a mythical and hyper-realist text out of "the north" which has as much to do with L.S. Lowry as it does with punk. Concentrating chiefly on The Falls earliest recordings - up to and including Hex Induction Hour - I will explore Smiths own
unique notion of the prole art threat and the characters that
populate his dark satanic landscape.
