Teenage Fanclub 'B-Side'
The most recent issue of Frank's APA has a b-sides theme. First up, let me talk about a song called 'B-side'. This was a b-side of the Teenage Fanclub single 'What You Do To Me' (the 12" also featured 'Filler' and 'Cover Version'). 'B-side' is probably still my favourite single song by Teenage Fanclub. It begins with a snippet of a radio interview with Big Star's Alex Chilton (in which he sounds amazingly camp), before launching into an epic tune about Big Star love. I occasionally shout for it at Fanclub gigs, and people look strangely at me.
