“e.g. self-satisfied, smug”

The Kinks – “Plastic Man” from The Great Lost Kinks Album (1973)

The Fall – “How I Wrote Elastic Man” from 50,000 Fall Fans Can’t Be Wrong comp (2004) [originally released in 1980]

Another Kinks/Fall pairing. Are these songs related at all? If so, Mark E. Smith must be a huge Kinks fan.

Those who haven’t heard the terrific Great Lost Kinks can get it here while it lasts. It’s a tough one to find otherwise.

or the Fall

  1. I love how the Fall song is titled “Elastic Man,” though MES says “Plastic Man.” I understand copyright dictated said shift in title, but it still seems like a good absurdist Fall move.
