Teenage Fanclub - “Patti Girl/Mine Exclusively” (covers of renditions previously done by Big Star)
The Fannies Cover the Masters
Mention Teenage Fanclub and their forebears Big Star won’t be far behind on fans’ lips. Musically, the band owes a lot to Big Star, whose power-pop melodies served as something of a template from which Teenage Fanclub built their body of work. If you were a fan of TFC’s and have never heard of Big Star or Alex Chilton before, there’s a huge chance of you becoming a Big Star convert. I’m betting most fans born in the 70’s onward became Big Star fans precisely because of Teenage Fanclub.
Teenage Fanclub collaborates with their heroes Big Star on these two tracks which were released as a special 7” vinyl record giveaway from NME Magazine in the early 90’s.
