Teenage Fanclub: Grand Prix

Ben Thompson, MOJO, June 1995

THE BUCKFAST BEATLES, THE Belshill Beach Byrds: whatever you want to call them, the Teenage Fanclub are back. And their new album (their sixth, if you count the recent now-say-you-only-liked-their-early-stuff compilation Deep Fried Fanclub, and rarely remembered instrumental doodle-athon The King) has a big picture of a racing car on it. First a football, now a racing car on it; where will this adolescent male bedroom decor album cover odyssey end?
