Teenage Fanclub's show at The Mod Club in Toronto yesterday was awesome, but it'll take me at least another day to sort out my photos and write up my usual review. When did "Bandwagonesque", my first foray into the world of Teenage Fanclub, come out? "1991", you say. Wow, and about 14 years later, I've now seen them live for the first time. I'm feeling old. But on to today's links(while I go ponder the meaning of life.) ;-)

Mocking Music examines the C86 scene as both a genre of music(indiepop) as well as literally a cassette collection of tracks of indie artists at the time(1986, in Britain). Mocking Music also has links to mp3's of all the tracks that were compiled on the C86 cassette which had been given away free with an issue of NME back in 1986.
