The Fall: Part 2 1983 – 1988

Episode 14

Play episode

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 or 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 (
