Abstract

This chapter explores the media construction of the persona of Mark E Smith (of post-punk band, The Fall), drawing on Deleuze and Guattari's theory of a 'minoritarian culture' to argue that we need the examples of those who, like Smith, treacherously outpace the presumptions implied in their deterrent media images, or 'mediaphemes'.
