31st August 1967 Gerard Love

Teenage Fanclub are returning shortly with a new album, doing what they do, and have done pretty much since Songs From Northern Britain, almost twenty years back. It was round about then that they embraced the idea of adulthood and with that in mind concluded that the early Byrds rather than Big Star or Dinosaur Jr. were their overriding template and they've kept with that way of looking at things in the ensuing years. This is the second trailer for the coming record and I assuming that it's Love's composition as it's rich with all the trademarks of his classic work. I have a colleague whose favourite maxim is 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it,' and sometimes, very, very occasionally she's right, although I don't imagine she was referring to the Fannies. The last twenty seconds of this are particularly glorious.
