After Tanya Donelly I did make it to Teenage Fanclub and ‘Grand Prix’ and this tune in particular:
I’ll probably get drummed out of the Scottish Bloggers Union for even suggesting this but, whilst there’s lots of great songs on the record, I find it hard to take it all in in one sitting these days. It’s really too saccharine for my tastes and I confess I prefer my Fannies when they mix things up a bit such as on ‘Bandwagonesque’.
But I’m not lying when I say there’s LOTS of great songs on the record!
At the start of the year Uncut suggested that there might be a new Fanclub LP in the summer which seems to have passed. But according to rumours it will appear sometime between the autumn and the spring.
