Mark Smith in Blogaria

I found this on The Fall's labyrin-thine fora (yes, that is a map of Bulgaria), where they claimed MOJO had said the following: 'Bizarro sketches both acoustic and experimental from Fall autocrat and pal, possibly themed around holidaying in Bulgaria.'

It seems highly likely to me that the song 'The Train' concerns a journey made on that narrow gauge track which followed us through the limestone outcrops to Velingrad, and is about a small steam engine containing Burt Lancaster, various works of art stolen by the Nazis, Peter Cushing, and a large bloodsucking neanderthal with a lovely singing voice.
