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

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. When they look at the band now, they still see themselves in them: they’re like the old best friends you see a couple of times a year, and come away from each meeting with your affections revived.

Over the course of almost 30 years in which they released seminal albums such as A Catholic Education, Bandwagonesque, Thirteen, Grand Prix, Songs From Northern Britain, Howdy!, Man Made, Shadows & Here, Teenage Fanclub went from being scrappy indie underdogs, through band-most-likely-to, eventually arriving at the status they’ve held ever since: one of Britain’s most beloved cult bands.

Not liked, or admired, or respected: beloved.
