Paul Hanley was the drummer in the Fall between 1980 and 1985. For much of that time he was part of a two-drummer line-up with Karl Burns and also played keyboards. He was preceded as a member of the Fall by his brother, Steve, who remained in the band for a further 13 years.
He was also briefly a member of fellow ex-Fall member Martin Bramah's group Factory Star, as was his brother Steve Hanley. He is currently a member of Brix & the Extricated, who released their first album Part 2 in September 2017.
Hanley's first book Leave The Capital, a treatise on the rise of Manchester's recording industry, was published in November 2017 by Route Books. His second book Have a Bleedin Guess, Which describes the making and impact of The Fall's Hex Enduction Hour, will be published in October 2019 by Route Books.
He once appeared as a contestant on the ITV quiz show, The Chase, which was shown as a repeat on 9 August 2019 edition of the British game show, but was eliminated, playing for £7000 in the first round.
