Snap Scene: Teenage Fanclub – Corner Hotel 12th Feb 2019

February 18, 2019 Mary Boukouvalas

Formed in 1989, Teenage Fanclub are a rare thing: a group who have grown old with their audience, reflecting their changing lives and shifting concerns. When Teenage Fanclub’s crowd looked at the band in 1991, they saw people just like them: boozy, boisterous and rambunctious.

“These recordings were never really planned as commercial releases and their existence after so long is partly sheer luck and also a reflection of the excellence of independent broadcasters like Melbourne’s 3RRR in preserving our musical culture.

As a live band, we made a huge impact on the Melbourne inner city scene, headlining our first shows and selling them out immediately. All of us, even the extremely young Kate, had been experienced players. Essendon Airport, the band we seemed to grow out of, was an arty, well connected and infamous concern.
