Teenage Fanclub on being the second-best band in the world

Glasgow alt.rockers Teenage Fanclub talk new album Here, hangovers and Liam Gallagher

In an uncertain world, Teenage Fanclub are a band to rely on. Formed in 1989, the Scots’ abrasive early sound settled into a harmony-drenched jangle on 90s classics such as Bandwagonesque, and this year’s tenth album, Here, proves the formula still has plenty of juice. From his home in Ontario, frontman Norman Blake sounds surprised by their longevity: “I suppose it’s unusual for bands to stay around for such a long time.”
