Come on, man, don’t be a drag

Shame on Ian Roberts for crit­i­cis­ing Mark E Smith with his con­de­scend­ing let­ter [MOJO 295]. Talk about kick­ing a man whilst he was down. Par­tic­u­larly galling was his as­ser­tion that Smith could in no way com­pare to Bob Dy­lan. Let’s keep our feet on the ground and get some per­spec­tive about His Royal Bob­ness here. The man has a voice like a crusty old fart, and has writ­ten such abom­i­na­tions as Man Gave Names To All The An­i­mals, Rainy Day Women, and that Christ­mas al­bum peo­ple only put on to laugh at. He’s also des­tined to be on the cover of MOJO at least once a year from now un­til the end of recorded time, so in Mark’s words: STOP MITHERING. Joe Mitchell, Rams­bot­tom
