Francis has made an instrumental album which will be officially released on the 30th March 2015. Available for “pre-order” now at

Over to you, Francis…

” Not sure what to say – it’s an instrumental album recorded at Mogwai’s Castle Of Doom. I played piano and a celeste borrowed from RSNO . The string quartet are musicians with the Glasgow string orchestra Scottish Ensemble.

I like it – I hope I’m not the only one… ”

Teenage Fanclub, Week-End Festival, Köln, 27th November 2014

On Thursday 27th November, two weeks tonight, we will be in the usual formation on a fairly big stage playing some of our songs at Week-End #4 in Köln, Germany.

As a group we have always been very fond  of Köln; it was the first city that provided us with free food, before a show in front of about twenty people at Rose Club during our first European tour in 1890, and we have strong memories of returning to the city through the years. This time, we’re appearing at Stadthalle with The Clientele, Amen Dunes, and Nicholas Krgovich.

If you happen to be in the vicinity, come see us.



Teenage Fanclub, Kelvingrove Bandstand, Glasgow, 15th Aug 2014

Until fairly recently the bandstand in Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow was the kind of rundown place where a band could just wander in unofficially and make a low-budget music video.  But now, thanks to a longstanding campaign to bring it back into regular use, it has finally been fully refurbished.  When we were asked to play there at one of a series of concerts to mark its re-opening we had no hesitation in accepting the invitation.  Tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday 9th May, and will be available here.
