Teenage Fanclub

After the success of Grand Prix, Teenage Fanclub set about the follow up with the same producer David Bianco. However, the relationship broke down and the tracks languished unfinished for a number of months. After a chance meeting with Norman Blake I was hired to work with the band at AIR Studio 1 and we tracked four new titles for the record. We then moved upstairs and I commenced mixing the whole thing over the course of a number of days. The main instruction from the band was not to use any reverb. (I may have sneaked a little bit in, even if Lou Reed got away with none on New York!) This resulted in the band’s highest chart placing with the single Ain’t That Enough
