I listened to Grand Prix the other day for the first time in years.
That is very good, but I may just prefer bandwogenesque. The Concept is one of the best opening tracks on an album.
Sadly, I didn't bother with any of their stuff post Grand Prix.
and Bandwagonesque is £2.98 on Amazon!
is £3 in the Fopp in London :)
Songs from Northern Britain, Manmade and Howdy are all super!
just ahead of Bandwagonesque.
Played the hell out of Grand Prix a few years ago to the point that I can't bare to listen to it anymore.
to that album they made with Jad Fair a few years ago. That probably doesn't count though I guess
they are playing a free gig this weekend in Barcelona. i am very excited about this even more so when you consider the huge lack of gigs the city has
Bandwagonesque - Thirteen
let's face it thay are one of the most incredibly under rated bands of all time.
then grand prix then howdy.
enjoy this video for kickabout, from ain't that enough single
don't i own any of these? i know for a fact that i love at least half of grand prix.
Double This - Songs from Northern Britain is amazing, then Grad Prix.
I know everyone seems to think it's cack but I came to it retrospectively having got into them via Grand-Prix and I have to say I think Thirteen has some of their sweetest melodies on it. GP still the overall fave though :)
What about the Teenage Fanclub Have Lost It EP? I've got it on cassette and don't seem to be able to get it for download off iTunes or anywhere - the acoustic version of Everything Flows is just painfully gorgeous...
Just a pure and simple melodic treat from start to finish.
Bandwagonesque is great too though. As SpookyLizard says above, The Concept is probably the best opener on any of their albums...
but it's definitely got some stunning tracks on it particularly Radio.
Predictably I'll say the best album's probably Grand Prix or Bandwagonesque both brilliant for different reasons.
Don't forget 'The Cabbage'!

does the deep fried fanclub compilation count? as well as 'everything flows' and 'god knows it's true' it's got 'don't cry no tears', 'free again' and 'so far gone' on there.
