Thirteen is the fourth album by Scottish alternative rock band Teenage Fanclub, released in 1993 on Creation Records in the UK and Geffen in the US. It was commonly believed at the time that it was named after the song "Thirteen" by Big Star, a band that has heavily influenced Teenage Fanclub. The self-produced album was poorly received by critics on its release. It peaked at number 14 on the UK Albums Chart.

Teenage Fanclub are a Scottish alternative rock band formed in Bellshill in 1989. As of 2019, the band's lineup consists of Blake, McGinley, Francis MacDonald (drums, vocals), Dave McGowan (bass, vocals) and Euros Childs (keyboards, vocals).

Bandwagonesque' is the third album by Scottish alternative rock band Teenage Fanclub, released in November 1991 on Creation Records. The album gave the band substantial US success when the single 'Star Sign' reached number four on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, becoming their biggest hit in that country, with "What You Do to Me" and "The Concept" also becoming top 20 hits on that chart.

Crotchety critics complained that this Glaswegian quartet sounded too close to cult Memphis band Big Star for their own or anyone else's good, but Bandwagonesque proved that unapologetic homage can sometimes work. The Fanclub's mesh of yearning, ethereal melody and cranked, feed-backing guitars came together superbly on "The Concept," "Metal Baby," and the thrashing "Star of mellifluousness that yoked Alex Chilton to Crazy Horse and the Ramones.

For all their subtle evolutions, Teenage Fanclub have devoted themselves to making records that still feel steadfast and timeless-never going out of style, never losing the feeling. It’s a path they set out upon with their first single, Everything Flows. We get older every year/But you don’t change, Blake observed, then added a caveat: Or I don’t notice you’re changing.

As such, the band successfully fuses hard rock and pop so that fans of either genre can appreciate easy-going yet powerful ballads such as the album's opening track. The Concept" sets the mood for the whole album with its easy melodic flow driven by Norman Blake's soft voice.
