Richard Dawson Part 2 (with Hen Ogledd): 2017 - 2020

THIS ALBUM IS A F**KING MASTERPIECE!!!

Well one of us said it, and it's about one of the albums in this episode. Honestly, it's that good. In fact one of us went and paid real cash money to Bandcamp after listening to it a few times. REAL CASH MONEY!!!

Nick and Ewan are again joined by singer and pod regular Zoë Von Hess and podcaster Nick Taylor (My Teenage Band) to scrutinise the latter half (thus far) of the work of Richard Dawson, and this time including his work with Hen Ogledd.

In this episode we discuss these records:

Peasant (2017)

Mogic (2018)

2020 (2019)

Free Humans (2020)



NOTE: This was originally intended to be released later in the season so we may reference that, don't worry there are more episodes to come!!!


As usual there's a Spotify playlist incorporating the podcast and selected songs which you can find at https://sptfy.com/tfrd2

About the Podcast

Temporary Fandoms
Temporary Fandoms: The music immersion podcast
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.
