Teenage Fanclub from Jon S

(scott) Jon S sends incredible posts on, say, a weekly or twice weekly basis, today he sends me a handful
and I am not wasting them all in one for today, lets go with an old fave of mine, Teenage Fanclub......somewhat underappreciated for my money,from Scotland,  in fact, the classic "Bandwagonesque" was chosen "Album of the Year" by Spin Magazine, whatever year that it was that it came out......a really good band with quite a varied sound, sort of 1990's post-power pop, pre-grunge kind of thing.......they never really seemed to get it "all" put together after that album, but they certainly did leave a memorable moment or two along the way......personal fave of mine: "The Concept" from "Bandwagonesque".....good song, good album, and HIGHLY under-rated band, here is pretty much the whole story, Jon S-style, meaning, you most likely need to check this out if you are either a fan of the band (for the rarities) or if you are uninititated (because, frankly, your life needs a bit more enrichment!)

Thanks Jon S, LOVE LOVE LOVE all of your submissions.......thanks 1,000,0000 times over, and that is not enough!

  1. Thanks Ever So Much for the Teenage Fan-Club. I was able to fill a few gaps in the discographi. Muc appreciated. 'Here' link though came up as expired. Able to re-up? I'm never bored with all the offerings to the music God here.

    1. new link

  2. Teeth Night Guard is offering precise fitting and highest quality customized teeth protectors.

  3. Bandwagonesque came out in 1991 so it controversially beat out Nevermind, among other classics, for Album Of The Year. Rolling Stone meanwhile gave it 1½ stars which was just stupid.
