On today's episode, I talk to Norman Blake and Raymond McGinley
of Teenage Fanclub. Emerging from the Scottish C86 scene of the
1980s, Teenage Fanclub formed out of the ashes of their previous
group The Boy Hairdressers. While they immediately garnered
positive reviews with their first few albums, released in America
on Matador, it was with their third album Bandwagonesque that they
broke through to a wider audience. In the thirty-some-odd years
since, they've never lost that original creative spark, releasing
nine more fantastic albums, and their latest, Nothing Lasts
Forever, will be released next month on Merge Records.
