Never heard of them.  That was quite good.  Great sounding guitars.  The chords on that were really cool in the way they used them.
What a cool cool band.  Dang.

Their debut was way back in the early 1990's, but they didn't fit in with the fashion of the day....

Norman Blake, quoted:

Why did you call your band Teenage Fanclub?
We thought there were a lot of pretentious band names around at that time, so we liked the idea of having something that was the antithesis of that. Something that was completely dumb and meaningless. We liked the ridiculous idea of that.

THAT is a great reason to have that name.  Love it.
