Sombrero Fallout is a novel of genius by the American author, Richard Brautigan. He’s the best writer you’ve never read, so it seemed fitting to name the site after him.
Here you can get hold of Ian Deeker Forth’s podcasts and read a short blog on any episode you like. Each one develops an hour of music around a central theme, punctuated by some ruminative mansplaining, which may even be of interest.
The aim is to play some music I know you’ll like, some music I think you’ll like, and some music I think you may like. The themes are many and various - female post punk icons, the legacy of Kraftwerk, a city themed episode, and so on. Maybe in time listeners can nominate a theme themselves.
At some point you’ll also be able to get hold of my novels here, as well. One of them's pretty good, so I'll start with that. In fact there are only two, and the other one is distinctly ho hum.
The site is dedicated to my friend Andy Bell (1963-2017), who, like Richard Brautigan, died alone in America, but who also vastly enriched the lives of everyone who knew him.
