"They're from Scotland," I heard a friend say recently, when asked about Teenage Fanclub. "Or Canada. Someplace cute." Not cute like compatriots Belle and Sebastian or anything, but there is a way in which this band, even 15 years and eight good-to-great albums into its career, sometimes seems more adorable than brilliant. The group's upcoming "Man-Made" is a record of workmanlike but ultimately winning power pop, like a Hollywood romantic comedy you can't help enjoying -- except with none of the guilt, because, remember, having been dropped by Columbia, Teenage Fanclub is indie again!
