The Fall: Part 4 1995 - 2000

Tony Blair, Elton John, and Mark E Smith as a pre cog?

And we are back with the late 90s. As Cool Britannia reigned and Brit Pop peaked and died how did this impact one of music's great acts?

The line up remains the same as last time with TempFan stalwart Zoë Von Hess and newbie Joe Mitchell. Both long-time Fall fans, they both bring their unique perspectives to fandoms, toxic bandmates, pre cogs, 90's guitars and more.

In this episode we work our way through

Cerebral Caustic (1995)

The Light User Syndrome (1996)

Levitate (1997)

The Marshall Suite (1999)

The Unutterable (2000)

As usual, take your time. Pause the pod, go and find the music on Spotify, Deezer, tidal, YouTube, apple music or wherever. You have plenty of time. Or just dust off your own Fall albums and listen again.

If you fancy supporting the show, either leave us a review somewhere (Apple Podcasts would be awesome) or donate a few euros, dollars, pounds . 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 enormously.

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.
