Drowned in Sound interviews Jan St Werner of Von Sudenfed (the collaboration between the Fall's Mark E. Smith and Mouse on Mars).

Would it be fair to say he calls himself (Mark E. Smith) an ‘anti-musician’?

Hmm, I’m not sure if he’s an anti-musician; it’s just that he’s not a musician. It gives him this outside perspective in judging things in a different way which I think is really important because if you are a musician you usually get caught up in being a virtuous or whatever, just being that person with that instrument or that melodic scale in mind. Not being a musician gave Mark a certain freedom to decide things in a different way – they still turn out musically, but they’re just not decided from a purely musical point of view. I think that’s a very good twist that he had on the whole project.
