MP3: Teenage Fanclub: Baby Lee

MP3: Baby Lee

I’m really excited to see Teenage Fanclub opening up for Belle and Sebastian in Brooklyn in a few months. The new album is great and while I never really listened to their earlier stuff (it slipped by me, SUE ME), this new record has been keeping me company on train rides all week.

  • You should start with “Four Thousand Seven Hundred & Sixty Six Seconds” which is a Teenage Fanclub “greatest hits” compilation.

    Second that, 4766 Secs. is a pretty incredible resume for a band. If you like the early raw stuff, also get Catholic Education, the 1st LP. It’s different from the later more poppy sound, and only got one song on the comp.

    I say get bandwagonesque.

  • Mike

    Judging by that song it sounds like they went from trying to sound like Big Star to trying to sound like XTC. They don’t do it as well.
