Belated Dad’s Day ditty from certified Dad Hero and BHS fashion icon Mark E Smith, here sporting a natty purple polo neck tucked into his trousers.

Big New Prinz is from our favourite Fall era in the late 80s, when they’d gone a bit ‘poppy’ in the parlance of Fall fans…Tho it doesn’t bear much resemblance to Rihanna. It does have a lolloping Glitter-stomp groove and one of those filthy minor key riffs that The Fall do so well.
The lyrics are what make it ideal fodder to play loud on the stereo on Dad’s Day, but it’s also very effective for the all too common current phenomenon, the redundancy party. Or ‘The Redundo’ as we Glasgow dads call it.
