The Fall: Part 5 2001- 2008

Mark E Smith as Doctor Who? The Eleni Period Begins.

Do The Fall suffer a post millennial slump, or is it all guns blazing into the new century? Does MES revamp the line up again to ruin Nick's argument that the line up was relatively stable? How is Ewan's brain after listening to the entire discography?

The line-up changes again, and we are joined by James Kennedy, Mike Plowman, Aaron Troy White and The Blue Orchids' Tansy McNally

In this episode we work our way through the ups and downs of...

Are You Are Missing Winner? (2001)

Country on the Click (2003)

Fall Heads Roll (2005)

Reformation Post TLC (2007)

Imperial Wax Solvent (2008)

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.

We had a few audio issues with this one, hopefully they won't get in the way of listening.

Or listen to a selection on our combined podcast playlist

We know that Spotify has weird licensing around the world, if there seems to be an album missing from the playlist, let us know.

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

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 of 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.
