RIP Mark E Smith

I've been known to post music on this blog for various reasons, including as tributes to artists who have recently died.  As one of the many fans of The Fall in the UK nuclear physics community, I feel I ought to mark the death The Fall's Mark E Smith last month with a song of theirs.

I was reminded of it the last time I attended the annual Institute of Physics Nuclear Physics Conference when it was in Birmingham.  The conference venue was the University of Birmingham's Business School

Incidentally, the external examiner for our physics degrees used to be one Mark E Smith, of the University of Warwick.  As I recall, he is well aware of his namesake.
