Mark E Smith vs the Squirrels

The Fall's Mark E Smith is facing investigation by the RSCPA following comments that he killed 'a couple' of squirrels who were eating his garden fence.

 

In the interview with NME's sister magazine Uncut, Smith also states that he doesn't have a problem with running over seagulls.

 

The RSPCA's spokesperson Klare Kennett, believing Smith was referring to the rare red squirrel species, told the Daily Mail: "The comments made by Mark E Smith are extremely irresponsible and he has basically admitted to committing an offence under the Wildlife and Countryside Act by killing two red squirrels.

 

"These animals are highly protected and anyone killing, harming or taking red squirrels from the wild is liable to prosecution and can face up to six months in prison and/or a fine of up to £20,000.

 

"If he is getting confused and talking about grey squirrels, then killing them without a good reason - eating food put out for them is not a good reason - could also be an offence under certain circumstances."

 

When interviewer Ben Marshall told Smith his father runs over seagulls, the singer replied: "Heh, heh, heh. Quite f***ing right. I don't have a problem with that."

 

The Fall are set to release their 28th studio album 'Imperial Wax Solvent' on April 24

MES is the dog's balls.

 

The Random Fall Song Title Generator must be broken, as the tracklist for the new album looks vaguely sensible:

 

1. Alton Towers

2. Wolf Kidult Man

3. 50 Year Old Man

4. I've Been Duped

5. Strangetown

6. Taurig

7. Can Can Summer

8. Tommy Shooter

9. Latch Key Kid

10. Is This New

11. Senior Twilight Stock Replacer

12. Exploding Chimney

Apart from...

 

11. Senior Twilight Stock Replacer

 

Which is like a parody of a Fall title.
