Teenage Fan Club Quotes
We kinda just enjoy making records. I mean, I'm not being flippant at all, but we're not really that worried. I guess we just don't expect anything. We've never thought any of our records were going to be massive albums.
"In the '60s bands used to put out two or three albums a year. That's how it should be done. All this record company stuff, marketing, takes such a long time. We'd love to make a record a year. We'd love to tour the album, finish the tour and go in and do another one."
"It's not as if Ray's writing punk, Gerry's writing avant-garde and Norman's writing pop: you can kind of tell whose song each is - they have their own style. But they're all very compatible and gel together.
I've known Alan for a long, long time; we're sort of more like friends, I would say, than him being "the guy who runs the label." He told me, "Don't worry, just finish the album and we'll pay for it. And then we'll see if we can help you go somewhere else."
It definitely was the end of an era. We'd had some really great times at some of the mad parties that Alan threw at Creation, you know? Legendary parties--Alan was doing a lot of drugs at the time, and it was totally insane!
In the '60s there were a lot of great British bands, and maybe some in the '80s, but now I really don't think there are that many. There are some. Gorky's Zygotic Mynci are brilliant, and Super Furry Animals. Belle & Sebastian are great. But it's not the same as it was in the '60s.
