TFC or Teenage Fanclub in writing depending on who I'm writing too, and Teenage Fanclub, The Fanclub, or 'my favourite band' in speech depending on who I am talking to.

I LOVE my TFC umbrella! :-)

I call them Teenage Fanclub but......

my boss and a girl at work rather suggestively call them Teenage Fanny Club, this started when e-mails were intercepted and scrutinised for 'wrong doing' etc, they said "ONLY YOU could follow a band called that, Teenage Fanclub indeed", I even had posters behind my desk as proof of my 'innocence'!

Hi Gazz.. :lol: I once had to write to my workplace's IT department (a college) after they blocked the website domain at work, and prove links to who the band were.. lol

Haven't been called Tat for a long time.. I'm well thanks, Gazz :)

In case you didn't know there is a Teenage Fanclub message board fan group on Facebook which, if you're on Facebook, might be a good place to check for spare tickets.. you don't have to join the group to see the posts, only to post there.. http://www.facebook.com/groups/fannysfanssupport/

Teenage Fanclub. Quick references to those who know TFC. Husband "Fanclub" When I reference the "Girls / Ladies " who live in the Chicagoland area that I have become friends with and have met socially and met up with in NYC couple years ago. They are my "FannieGirlsClub". tho I never said that to them directly.

Usually ''tfc'' (but Serbian spelling, so it sounds quite specific!).

I am also, like Terje, familiar with the comments like ''that band you like'',
but most of the people in my surroundings just call them ''Teenagers''.

"Teenagers." Hmmmm. A new addition to the canon for me. I like it.
