Teenage Fanclub: Man-Made

Michael Goldberg, Neumu, May 2005

I SEE kaleidoscopic images, swirls of psychedelic color, a sunny day in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, with hippies everywhere, long-haired teenagers and twentysomethings blowing soap bubbles at each other, doing cartwheels in the grass… Teenage Fanclub's music brings back images of the mid-to-late '60s in the Bay Area, a hippie paradise for a few years, before it all went to shit.
