Radio transmission: notorious weirdo Mark E. Smith, leader of iconic post-punk band The Fall, breaks his interview silence for the first time in over five years tomorrow, June 17. Renowned for his press-shyness, he's agreed to speak with ex-Smiths drummer Mike Joyce (who clearly has some experience with iconoclastic front men) on the Coalition Chart show, his 10 AM slot on East Village Radio. And since it'd be pointless just to go in there and yammer after not speaking for so long, Smith will also perform live in the studio. Knowing his mic style, though, we wouldn't be surprised if he just rolled into the booth and turned all his interview answers into a cutting, scythe-cold song. Tune in and find out live from 10 AM to noon EST, or if that's too early, stream it later and watch the video at East Village Radio.
