They've just finished a 3 night stint in Glasgow's leafy westend - this is what they did on each night, for those that may be interested and don't know.
I went along last night and it was really very good indeed. They did loads of stuff from Thirteen (Escher, Fear of Flying, Ret Liv Dead, Gene Clark) and Catholic Education and finished off with Alcoholiday and Sparky's Dream, coming back to the stage with the crowd chanting 'wan mare tune! wan mare tune!'. There's something very special about Teenage Fanclub (or the Teenies as someone so wrongly calls them) and I'm not even going to begin to attempt to talk about their music as I'll only sound like an arse, but yeah! The Fannies! They make me feel joyous.Saturday 14th June : Electric Chestnuts - This evening will feature well known material presented in the full-on familiar manner. Expect electric guitars, loud drums, amplifiers, shouting.
Sunday 15th June : Acoustic Chestnuts - This evening will feature well known material naturally suited to acoustic instruments. Expect acoustic guitars, slower songs, pipes, slippers, warmth and quietness.
Monday 16th June : Live Obscurities - This evening, as the name suggests, will feature slightly lesser known material presented in an electric format. Expect album tracks, b-sides, cover versions, the gnashing of teeth, the odd chestnut.
Here is a random video from one of those dunderheads at gigs who would rather stand with a camera than watch the band in front of them. This is my favourite TFC song for today.
Should this be in the indiepop forum? I was confused by their lack of hair slides.
