I didn’t get a copy of Hex Enduction Hour until I was 25 or 26. I was living with my parents at the time, and the first time I listened to it, my mom was in the car. She puts up pretty well with a lot of my music, but she was offended by “The Classical.”
I was running late for work Monday morning, and people started hassling me as soon as I walked out the door. I was so annoyed, the only thing I could stand to listen to was the Fall.
RIP Mark E. Smith.
