Great job lads

Fun, laidback look inside the Fall by the two guys who may have the best insight into the group. Nice to hear from the guests so far as well. The Handleys don’t have an axe to grind or any agenda; it’s like hanging out in the pub and hearing stories about the Fall and the scene in general. Could imagine that “the fallen” could have some bitterness or conversely, too much reverence for MES. None of that here, just a laugh-filled look into our favorite group.

Great podcast

Great to hear the Hanley Brothers reminisce. As a Fall fan from the US from 1987 it was difficult to hear interviews or find information back in the day! I had one of those Mark E Smith for Drain Comissioner signs as well! Love both the Hanley brothers’ books as well. Looking forward to more!

O Brother Indeed

For a US Fan of the Fall, stumbling on this made my day.

I was the guy in the Big Midweek who provided Steve and Band the “Mark E. Smith for Drain Commissioner” backdrop in Philly.

Great episode with lots of laughs.

Would love to grab a pint with Steve and/or Steve and Paul someday if our paths ever crossed.

Highly entertaining and informative episode and looking forward to the next one.
