Topic: MARK ALMOND STORY & THE FALL AT THE ROYAL STANDARD 78
MARK ALMOND STORY +the fall
Hi was in London a while ago now. I was stood outside reckless records in berwick street in soho.
I looked round and Mark Almond was stood next to me. He had is yes it is me! face on.
I looked away ,then looked back and the alarm of the side of the shop fell off the wall and hit him on the head.
He was staggering in the road with blood spurting out of his head.He then fell on the floor ,got up again ,staggered around again, then some people jumped on him trying to keep him still,and stop the blood.
I left at this point as it was getting really messy.
I remmember when the Fall played the Royal Standard in Bradford in 78
It coinsided with the SATANS Slaves night out, who poped into the standard for a pint.
There were about 50 of them.
One of them took a shine to the bass players girlfriend, which was going to end up as disaster from that moment.
As the slaves started pawing at her she cried out for assistance.
Fair play to the bass player he went over to aid his girlfriend and got pummelled to the ground for his trouble.
The slaves must have been in a good mood as a beating from them usually means a trip to the B RI or be all right.
How ever he had to play the gig sat on a chair throughout.
And at no point did we see Marky boy come to aid
