Teenage Fanclub announce February 2019 New Zealand show

‘In the long and twisted history of indie rock, Teenage Fanclub ring out loud and true’ –
Sydney Morning Herald

‘If you fall for Teenage Fanclub, you fall hard’ – The Quietus

‘In any event, this is a band well worth extra attention … the albums are so good that no one is complaining.’ – Popmatters, ‘The 25 Best Songs of Teenage Fanclub’


Frontier Touring is delighted to welcome back Glasgow five-piece Teenage Fanclub, returning to New Zealand in February 2019. The iconic ‘What You Do To Me’ rockers will perform one headline date in Auckland, with tickets going on sale Monday 27 August.

Watch: Teenage Fanclub on their vinyl re-issues

Over the course of almost 30 years in which they released seminal albums such as A Catholic Education, Bandwagonesque, Thirteen, Grand Prix, Songs From Northern Britain, Howdy!, Man Made, Shadows & Here, Teenage Fanclub went from being scrappy indie underdogs, through band-most-likely-to, eventually arriving at the status they’ve held ever since: one of Britain’s most beloved cult bands.

Not liked, or admired, or respected: beloved.

Teenage Fanclub’s most recent studio album is their tenth effort, 12 tracks and a textbook representation of democracy in action: 2016’s Here.

August 2018 sees the band celebrating the vinyl re-issue of five longplayers originally released between 1991-2000 on Alan McGee’s Creation Records. Vinyl fans, head here to purchase new copies of Bandwagonesque, Thirteen, Grand Prix, Songs From Northern Britain and Howdy!, all re-mastered for the very first time by the group at the UK’s legendary Abbey Road Studios.

Listen: Norman Blake (founding member) talks to BBC 6, Aug 2018

Formed in 1989, Teenage Fanclub are a rare thing: a group who have grown old with their audience, reflecting their changing lives and shifting concerns. When Teenage Fanclub’s crowd looked at the band in 1991, they saw people just like them: boozy, boisterous and rambunctious. When they look at the band now, they still see themselves in them: they’re like the old best friends you see a couple of times a year, and come away from each meeting with your affections revived.

Don’t delay in grabbing tickets to Teenage Fanclub, playing Auckland February 2019!

Howard Davis: Emerald Fennell's Promising Young Woman'


The Guardian needed not one, but three reviews to do justice to Fennell's unsettling approach, which indicates exactly how ambiguous and controversial its message really is. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.

Howard Davis: The Back of the Painting

Painting conservators are the forensic pathologists of the art world. While they cannot bring their subjects back to life, they do provide fascinating insights into the precise circumstances of a painting's creation, its material authenticity, and constructive methodology. More>>


Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

A passionate and gripping political drama from Shaka King, this is an informative and instructive tale of human frailty that centers around the charismatic Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was murdered at the age of twenty-one during a police raid. More>>

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>
