Teenage Fanclub Biography

Teenage Fanclub are a Scottish alternative rock band formed in Bellshill in 1989. The band is composed of Norman Blake (vocals, guitar), Raymond McGinley (vocals, lead guitar), Gerard Love (vocals, bass) and Francis MacDonald (drums), with songwriting duties shared equally among Blake, McGinley and Love. In concert, the band usually alternate among the three songwriters (who all sing lead vocals on their own songs) giving equal playing time to each one's songs.

Although often pegged as alternative rock, the group has incorporated a wide variety of elements from various music styles in its songs.

Teenage Fanclub has had a succession of drummers, including Francis MacDonald, Brendan O'Hare and Paul Quinn, who was later replaced by the returning Francis MacDonald. Keyboardist Finlay MacDonald (no relation) has also been a member.

As of July 2010, the band have released nine studio albums and two compilation albums.
