Special Needs’ Funfairs And Heartbreak is one of my favourite albums ever, but somehow it did not become a pop essential outside of its rabid awesome fanbase. I saw the band so many times and am proud to call them my friends too, some great nights were had with these boys, in FROG, Nambucca, tiny pubs, nightclubs, they were truly fabulous.

Now the Boys In The Band podcast has a brand new episode with Zac Stephenson discussing the band, in which they describe the community around the band, the magic and of course, the downfall.

Listen here and if you haven’t heard Funfairs And Heartbreak in a while, go listen again after this. Magic band
