Vinyl love: Teenage Fanclub “Bandwagonesque” (+ “Heavy metal 6” b/w “Long hair”)

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: Teenage Fanclub
Album Title: Bandwagonesque
Year released: 1991
Year reissued: 2018
Details: Black vinyl, reissue, remastered at Abbey Road Studios, included bonus 7″ single “Heavy metal 6” b/w “Long hair”

The skinny: Considered at the time, one of the best albums of 1991, topping a good deal of ‘best of the year’ charts. Unfortunately, it hasn’t enjoyed the same sustained commercial success as some of its contemporaries (*cough* Nirvana *cough*). The Fannies third (?) album is a classic in my eyes, all noisy guitars, feedback, and beautiful vocal harmonies. This fully remastered reissue is one of five the band did this year (each arriving last week in post) so expect a few more Teenage Fanclub “Vinyl Love” posts in the coming month.

Standout track: “The concept”

Yes. It’s quite awesome and the remastering sounds great. I’m going to love rediscovering these albums. I’m sure you’re going to love your package once it arrives.

I knew he married a Canadian woman and moved to Ontario somewheres but wasn’t completely sure where. Would be great to sit down to a pint with him.
