There was no sophmore slump on Teenage Fanclub's wonderful Bandwagonesque album back in 1991. The quartet from Glasgow, Scotland had their power pop chops working in full effect, giving way to sunny West Coast rock ala Byrds, Beach Boys and Big Star; leaving behind the atmospherics of shoegaze and heavy grunge in favor of clean, polished harmonies. The band often referred to as "The Fannies" and "The Bellshill Beach Boys" still please listeners today; their last record, Man-Made was released by Merge Records in 2005. The boys continue to rock out at many of a fest throughout Europe. However, nothing quite compares to the nostalgic second record, with the classic crunchy guitars and contemplative style on "Star Sign" which reached #4 on the U.S. Modern Rock charts. How can one stop humming the irresistible love song, "What You Do to Me" or the laid-back Byrdsesque jam on "The Concept." Try washing one down with a perfectly hopped Punk IPA from Scotland's favorite micro, Brew Dog.
