Teenage Fanclub: I Was a Teenage Fannie
Stephen Dalton, Vox, November 1991
Has rock'n'roll gone soft? Live they sound like the outbreak of World War III, but off-stage Glasgow grungers Teenage Fanclub discuss new-world realpolitik and go to bed early. Stephen Dalton joins the, ahem, Fannies in Newcastle and Derby, and is shocked to find that not one TV is thrown out of a hotel window.
