If you have ever wanted to know what makes music “Baroque” then listen on…
Putting The Fall behind us, kind of, we head back to the 60s and take in the West Coast sound of Love. The Band that could have had Jimi Hendrix in, that could have played at Woodstock, that could have been… oh just listen!
Re-joining Nick and Ewan is pod favourite Emily Baldoni, and making their debuts are Gavin Hogg (host of the THE GIDDY CAROUSEL OF POP – Possibly the number 1 Smash Hits Pod around) and Paul Hanley (author, podcaster, drummer of Brix and the Extricated, and once upon a time …The Fall) to share their opinions.
Poor old Snoopy…
In this episode we work our way through .
De Capo (1966)
Forever Changes (1967)
Four Sail (1968)
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 (minor echoes), 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.
Or just follow us on your favourite pod player here

Paul currently drums for Brix and the Extricated and you can buy their stuff here
You can also buy copies of his two books ( Leave The Capital: A History of Manchester Music in 13 Recordings, and HAVE A BLEEDIN GUESS: The story of Hex Enduction Hour) from here
AND Paul Has only gone and made his own Fall podcast ( I like to think we gave him the idea) and that is over here
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

Paul Hanley was the drummer in Manchester legends The Fall from 1980-85 and now plays with Brix & The Extricated. he has written two books, Leave The Capital: A History of Manchester Music in 13 Recordings and HAVE A BLEEDIN GUESS: The story of Hex Enduction Hour
