Teenage Fanclub - Bandwagonesque (1991)

This album is still amazing. Shoegaze guitar sweeps. Lush vocal harmonies. Pop hooks. Punk flare. Like it matters but Bandwagonesque won Spin magazine's 1991 end of the year poll for best album, beating out Nirvana's Nevermind, Creation label mates My Bloody Valentine's Loveless and R.E.M.'s Out of Time. If you knew, sit back and remember. If you dont know, get you some.

this came out just as the major labels started to realize there where tons of "independent" bands out there to exploit - they named it bandwagonesque to make fun of the fact they where jumping on the indie-to-major bandwagon. great band. great album.
