    though quinn didn't actually write any songs during his stint in tfc, it's no wonder grand prix + songs from northern britain draw from the same ether--a catholic education, bandwagonesque and thirteen are all great, but it's the former two albums that i connect to and find myself coming back to most. this band has surprisingly minimal web presence in 2012, i've only found north pole so far~

    "Which means that, when Quinn was drummer for TFC, the band had four great song-writers at the same time. Has that ever happened before, four great song-writers in the same band?" the beatles, arguably, come to mind. depending on whether or not one thinks ringo starr qualifies as a great songwriter -- the other 3 members are easier to make a case for, i think. also... crosby, stills, nash & young? the traveling wilburys? maybe it's not a fair comparison to use "supergroups" as examples.

    royalpoet: Quinn never wrote any songs for Teenage Fanclub, though. That's almost criminal, to let such a source of magic pop composition let go unused for seven years.

    Noticed today that Primary 5's myspace profile was deleted, not sure how recently. Anyone know what's going on? I really hope they (Paul specifically) are not done for good... =(

    Primary 5 is almost on the level of Teenage Fanclub. There's little higher praise from me. Paul Quinn is song-writing genius. Which means that, when Quinn was drummer for TFC, the band had four great song-writers at the same time. Has that ever happened before, four great song-writers in the same band?
