MARK E. SMITH, lead singer and main force behind prolific post-punk band The Fall, has died, according to a statement from the band. He was 60, and kept swinging to the end. Here's his final interview.  The NYT obit is really 12 essential tracks.  In 2015, Stereogum ranked The Fall's already voluminous catalog.
