Jonny – Beach Party

With only a smidgeon of evidence in the case for Jonny I have finally been able to get over my reservations about Teenage Fanclub’s recent output. That’s because the Norman Blake/Euro Childs (Gorky’s) collaboration sounds like things used to sound for the fabulous Glaswegian outfit. The first single is called ‘Candyfloss’ and represents classic jangle pop. It is due to be released in mid January with a self-titled LP to follow next month so as a taster the duo have released an EP of 4 non-album tracks. It’s a particularly lo-fi affair but you can’t keep a good song down and it looks like there is genuine magic sprouting from the new (old) union. The sub 2 minute ‘Beach Party’ is the pick of the bunch with the retro silliness of ‘Continental’ a close second and all four can be downloaded for free over here. KD
