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.

As we dive through the discographies, why not dive through our past episodes and listen to:
John Tansey on The Pogues
Ben Zimmer, Emily Baldoni, Lael Wageneck, Steven Miller, Zoë Von Hess, Jonathan Fisher, and Emma McDermott on David Bowie
Nick Hilditch, Brendan Quigley and Aron T White on The Butthole Surfers
Ben Zimmer, Jesse Jarnow, and Jeffrey Lewis on Yo La Tengo
Aron T White and Chris Whitby on Can
Ewan, Emily Baldoni, and William Shunn on Spoon
Scott Donald and Si Sharp on QOTSA
Nick Hilditch, John Henderson, Fliss Kitson, J Fisher, Zoë Von Hess, Joe Mitchell, James Kennedy, Mike Plowman, Aaron Troy White, and Tansy McNally on The Fall
Emily Baldoni, Gavin Hogg, and Paul Hanley on Love

    Love: Part 1 1966 - 1968

    Love: Part 1 1966 - 1968

    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 .

    The Fall: Part 6 2010- 2017

    If it's me and your granny on bongos (and the 66 other guitarists, drummers, bass players, keyboardists, flutists, and more)
    It doesn't feel like it's over. We have spent weeks listening to, digesting, dissecting, and discussing over three decades of music from THE FALL. Here we step through the final years, find some praise for the later albums and deal with Mark's tragic death.
    The line-up remains the same from last time, and we are joined by James Kennedy, Mike Plowman, Aaron Troye White and The Blue Orchids' Tansy McNally
    In this episode we work our way through the ups and downs of...

    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

    The Fall: Part 4 1995 - 2000

    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.

    The Fall: Part 3 1990 - 1994

    We are Falling through the halfway mark... MARK?... there's a joke in there somewhere.
    Despite Nick constantly banging on about how The Fall have a pretty solid line up, I'm going to refer to our Fall-esque constantly revolving line up.
    Back on the Pod is TempFan favourite Zoë Von Hess and joining her is newbie Joe Mitchell. Both long-time Fall fans, they both bring their perspectives to fandoms, toxic bandmates, 90's wazzy keyboards and more.

    The Fall: Part 2 1983 - 1988

    The Fall: Part 2 1983 - 1988

    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.

Good fun deep dive

A great mix guests talking about the albums of bands they love.
It's nice to spend time with one artist and not keep soing the spotify shuffle
