The Hanley Brothers at Classic Album Tuesdays

Steve and Paul Hanley were special guests of Classic Album Tuesdays and talked to guest host Gavin Hogg about The Fall album Perverted By Language. Here they talk about the album, their respective books (The Big Midweek and Leave The Capital), playing with Brix & The Extricated, and they take questions from the floor.

On the evening, Perverted By Language was played in full on vinyl. Here, just a single track is included for educational purposes.

Running time 47:35. Recorded at Edward’s, Sheffield on 28 November 2017. Both brothers are audibly suffering from a cold virus, which it appeared that 80% of the nation was carrying at that time.
