A friend posting on Twitter yesterday about how a certain Del Amitri song sounded like a lost work by Teenage Fanclub reminded me that I used to have a compilation of songs that could only be called Fanclubesque. What qualities am I looking for in such a song? Well a certain combination of jangle and slouch, plus harmonies and a non-specific melancholy. So, I’ve tried to rebuild it in Spotify. It runs vaguely chronologically but, really, it’s all one song. It also contains a handful of songs they’ve covered and a couple of theirs done by other artists. If you don’t like Teenage Fanclub, it’s probably not for you. And you’re dead to me anyway.
