NOTEBOOKS OUT, PLAGIARISTS



"EARTH'S IMPOSSIBLE DAY" is the sub-title of Side-1 (on the vinyl) of SHIFT-WORK by THE FALL. It's also the title of a Hawkman strip from The Brave and The Bold #44 (october 1962) by the late, great Gardner Fox and the great (but still very much alive) Joe Kubert. 'Course we knew all along that MES was a comics nerd...the lyrical references to Lovecraft and Dick and Jack Kirby; calling a track "Riddler!" on Bend Sinister (not to mention the Joker toy, er, action-figure on the inner sleeve of the same...). London Dec. '03, Carling Academy: Smith is on-stage, name-checking Fritz Leiber in his ad-libs: Fafnir and the Grey Mouser, eh? Is there no end to his shameless behaviour.
