I meant to post this earlier, but here's a terrific article from The Guardian about one man's quest to find everyone who's ever played in The Fall. Despite Mark E. Smith's lack of concern for his fellow bandmates (it appears that leaving them stranded at airports and bus stops is his modus operandi for giving them their pink slips), they're still one of my favorite bands of all time, and as Bill pointed out, the band that possesses perhaps the deepest and most exhaustive catalog of anyone in the last 30 years. It's definitely a case of "trust the art, not the artist", but to be honest his restless nature is part of The Fall's appeal and one of the reasons that their music has always seemed so fresh and never boring year after year.
