They strum! They don't jangle! Honest! NME.COM was there to see it...

TEENAGE FANCLUB played an exclusive acoustic set last night (November 23) in honour of the launch of NICK HORNBY’s new collection of short stories, ‘SPEAKING WITH THE ANGEL’.

The band played a seven-song set, which included the highlights from their new album, ‘Howdy!’, along with a smattering of old favourites like ‘Don’t Look Back’ and ‘About You’.

The complete set was:

‘Your Love Is The Place Where I Come From’

‘About You’

‘Dumb, Dumb, Dumb’

‘Don’t Look Back’

‘My Uptight Life’

‘I Need Direction’

‘Mellow Doubt’

‘Ain’t That Enough’

The event was to commemorate the launch of a book of short stories put together by author Nick Hornby in aid of The Treehouse – a special school in central London that offers special education for autistic children.

‘Speaking With The Angel’ features contributions from authors including Patrick Marber, Helen Fielding and Irvine Welsh – as well as several from Hornby himself.

The evening was hosted by comedian Rob Newman, and featured readings from Griff Rhys Jones and Mark Addy.
