The Fall: Part 2 1983 - 1988

Yup, it's gonna take a while. Let's continue with the discography of one of music's great acts: THE FALL

Nick and Ewan are re-joined by our very special guests, John Henderson of Tiny Global Productions, Fliss Kitson of The Nightingales, and pod music maestro Jonathan Fisher.

In this episode we look at the mid to late 80s, and tackle what many think of as the Fall's greatest album ( you will probably disagree)

After the last episode we started sneaking into some podcast top ten lists, so let's go to the moon!!

We had some tech issues with this pair of episodes so hopefully the slight drop in sound quality for this ep isn't too annoying.

Hopefully our new release day of Thursdays is good for you.

As usual, take your time. Pause the pod, go and find the music on spotify, deezer, tidal, apple music or wherever. You have plenty of time.

Or listen to a selection on our combined podcast playlist

Also come and join us at our homes over at beat.rehab/tempfans or tempfans.com and find all the playlist links and episodes.

Or just subscribe on your favourite pod player here

If you fancy supporting the show, either leave us a review somewhere (Apple Podcasts would be awesome) or buy us a coffee . We currently have small costs every month and it would be great to lower our outgoings. Regardless or whether you can chip in, a 5 star review (if you feel like it) on Apple would help enourmously.

See their simply awesome acts and maybe buy some records at Music | Tiny Global Productions (bandcamp.com)

Jonathan is the genius behind our theme music and you can hear more of his stuff on his Bandcamp

About the Podcast

Temporary Fandoms
Temporary Fandoms: The music immersion podcast
Temp Fans is a podcast that explores the complete studio discography of legacy, popular, or downright obscure artists. We started out as a Facebook group where we listen to an album a day by a chosen artist, from start to finish, even the bad bits. And that's what this podcast is.

Join us as we dive through the good, the bad and the what? Take your time and listen along. Feel free to pause us and go listen on Spotify or wherever to the albums. Or go to our Spotify playlist where you will find the pod spliced up and inserted into a curated playlist of selected tracks.

To date Nick and Ewan have been joined by an ever growing roster of guests, who all have one thing in common; they want the chance to talk about artists that inspire passion in them. That's not to say this is a gushfest, there are plenty of dissenting opinions on the way.
