Paul on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row on 6th May 2020, talking Hex Enduction Hour and The Fall alongside music critic Kate Mossman and presenter Katie Popperwell. There is tribute to Karftwerk founder Florian Schneider at the end of the programme. His death was announced that day.
Here’s the text from the BBC Front Row website:
‘In 1982 post-punk group, The Fall, led by charismatic frontman Mark E. Smith, released their fourth album Hex Enduction Hour. At the time the group were struggling for attention and success outside their small but devoted following that included Radio 1 DJ John Peel who regularly championed their music. Hex Enduction Hour changed all that and five decades on is still regarded as a masterpiece. Former Fall drummer, Paul Hanley has written a new book, Have A Bleedin Guess, about the making of the album and is joined by music critic Kate Mossman to discuss the album’s significance.’
