Scared of the Boogie Man

Just got my Popbitch gossip newsletter, and this little nugget caught my eye:
The Fall are on Jools Holland's show next week.
Mark E Smith is the only artist in the history
of the show to have a clause in his contract
inserted to state that Jools will not play
boogie-woogie piano over any of his songs.

Too bad he thought so far ahead--the look of horror on Mark E. Smith's face when jumpy-jivey Jools chimed in with a little "Roll 'Em Pete" by Pete Johnson over The Fall's "Bingo-Master's Break-Out" would have been priceless.

Mark E Smith, happy camper:

Thanks a lot, Mark E. Smith, for ruining what might have been television magic.
