Singles: Radio, Norman 3

On release, Thirteen was unfairly maligned across much of the press but still reached No. 14 in the UK Charts, their highest charting album at the time. This was the band’s ‘difficult’ album following on from the global success of Bandwagonesque but they crafted an album across several months in studios in Glasgow, the band’s hometown, and Manchester. The underrated album stands up today alongside anything else they have done, confirmed by the power pop majesty of Radio, one of their biggest hits. Although named after the number of tracks on the album, the title is a clear reference to Big Star, a relatively obscure reference point at the time, but a key influence for the band. Another key influence for the album is The Byrds, a reference proudly worn on their sleeves with album’s closing track Gene Clark.

“everywhere the pleasures of harmony and wistfulness are well to the fore.” -
