The Fall's Mark E Smith has hit out against the praise lavished on Kate Bush's comeback.
The notoriously outspoken frontman says he doesn’t understand why the singer – who is currently completing her 22-date run of shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo – is "suddenly cool again".
The Fall and The Undertones are to play a gig in honour of late Radio 1 DJ John Peel.
Both bands will perform at Epic Studios on October 10 as a launch event for the new John Peel Festival Of New Music.
The show will also see Peel favourites Bearsuit and Dingus Khan play before the three day festival itself kicks off in earnest with over 50 acts performing across 10 venues across the city from October 11-13.
