The Fall: Part 1 1979 – 1982

Episode 13

Play episode

Join us for the foreseeable future as we tackle the discography of one of music’s great acts: THE FALL

Nick and Ewan start this journey with the help of some very special guests. They are joined by John Henderson, of Tiny Global Productions, Fliss Kitson of The Nightingales, and pod music maestro Jonathan Fisher.

We had some tech issues so hopefully the slight drop in sound quality for this ep isn’t too annoying.

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.

We have decided to put out more episodes but slightly shorter ones. Hopefully that works for you

Or listen to a selection on our combined podcast playlist

Also come and join us at our homes over at or and find all the playlist links and episodes.
