Just every so often pop music throws up a band with a sound all of its own, leaving a trail of imitators in its wake.

On their first album TEENAGE FANCLUB subtley plundered the forbidden texts of seventies rock and boogie, taking the guitar harmonics and easy-flowing, almost sloppy feel of vintage FACES and mixing it with the distortion of DINOSAUR JR and BEATLESesque melodies and harmonies.

A roughly recorded album for sure, but tunes like the joyful "Everything Flows" and "Eternal Light" remain amongst their best.

"A Catholic Education" is the album which best represents TEENAGE FANCLUB rather than the BIG STAR style pop which was to follow.

For all of its shortcomings, one of the all-time great debut albums.
