The Fall stopped being a proper band before the first album even came out.
He basically got his girlfriend Kay Carroll to become the bands manager which rubbed a lot of people up the wrong way and eventually the original members of the band left.Tony Friel joined a couple of bands and then left the music industry. Martin Bramah & Una Baines went off to form Blue Orchids leaving Mark E Smith to hire & fire whoever he pleased.
He`s often said he treats the band like a football squad and for every band member he has about 3 people lined up to replace them.I guess it`s a combination of wanting to keep things fresh , the other members of the band are heavily involved with the writing process it`s not like it`s Mark E Smith telling everybody what to play.They write the songs & Mark E Smith puts his stamp on them.
Also he`s not the easiest person in the world to get on with , in fact the number of people who were in the Fall who have had nervous breakdowns is incredible.

Apparently its because Mark E Smith is an ******* and nobody can put up with him for more than a couple of tours.
