Fenn - Spanish



Right, don't expect to gain much insight into Fenn by reading any of this as I know absolutely zero about the band and the internet is not exactly overflowing with information about this Scottish four-some either. And that about wraps up all I know about them, they were Scottish and there were four of them.

Looking at my vinyl version of this record I can see that it is actually signed by the members of the band. Now I am as much of a fanboy as anyone but I specifically remember buying my LP copy when it came out and it coming pre-signed as if it was the new U2 album or something. Who in the hell thought it was a good idea to get the members of the band to sit there signing god knows how many copies of their LP when not one person in the world is going to care, not one? Even as an impressionable 15 year old I wasn't the slightest bit impressed, I think I knew then the band were destined to dissolve into obscurity leaving behind only a few illegible scribbles on an otherwise lovely cardboard sleeve.

Despite the illusions of grandeur the band may have had, this album is absolutely great. Noisy guitar pop with sweetly, melodic but completely indistinct vocals buried in the mix. The single 'Not Jelly' is a corker.
