HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL MY FRIENDS WAY OVER YONDER

mp3 : The Auteurs – American Guitars

And just to avoid any confusion, Luke Haines was NOT having a dig at grunge as many have long believed (including myself). He said this in an interview a few years back:-

Totally misunderstood. I thought all those Seattle bands Nirvana, Mudhoney, Tad etc. were great. (I thought Teenage Fanclub were great but for some reason I never would have admitted it at the time) I thought the British slacker imitators were weak. I thought all those British bands that came before (MBV, Slowdive etc) were fundamentally simple minded and weak. The Auteurs were not weak.
