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.

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.

If you fancy supporting the show, either leave us a review somewhere (Apple Podcasts would be awesome) or https://www.buymeacoffee.com/tempfans (donate a few euros, dollars, pounds) . 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 enormously.
