Taken from the Teenage Fanclub website:

'It gives us great pleasure to announce that our new album Man-Made, will be released on the 2nd of May. Twelve new songs for your delectation. Released on our own PeMa label, with the catalogue number PeMa002. We'll also be playing a couple of shows to celebrate our return. The first is in London at the Scala on the 29th March followed on the 31st with a show at the Mitchell theatre in Glasgow. Support on both shows will be Green Peppers. We'll be announcing a fuller touring schedule very soon.'

The artwork looks fantastic and I have it on some authority that the album was recorded at SOMA studios in Chicago (courtesy of Tortoise's John McEntire) so there's a lot to look forward to with this record!

Handy Portrait Tips!

Preparation for your Family Portrait.

Always decide what type of sitting you'd like to have, your Purpose...

Individual - Perfect for special occasions and presents for parents.

Family - Capture the smiles and joy of the entire family!

Group - Two or more people, catch those siblings interacting and playing!
Group pictures are the perfect gifts for relatives!

Combinations - capture the smiles of your children individually, as well as some
poses together. Don't forget to include yourself in some of these portraits,
an individual portrait taken with Mom or Dad let's them know how special they
are! Select a time that works best with your family's schedule. Are your
children typically more relaxed in the morning or afternoon? Generally...
children photograph best when they are well rested and fed.

Also what style would you like?

Decide the type of "look" you want, e.g., classical, casual, contemporary, candid etc.

Children's Portraits...

Let their personalities shine through! personalise your portraits by bringing a special
book, project or favorite toy.

Young toddlers are sometimes the trickiest to prepare. They quickly pick up on stress
and may become nervous, so always keep it fun and don't rehearse the sitting. Arrive
early and let the photographer get to know your child. When selecting clothing, keep
in mind what everybody is wearing to keep harmony with the overall look.

Family Portraits...
Keep it fun fun fun! Remember, children will quickly pick up on stress!
Avoid the last minute rush by preparing your clothing early.
While family portraits are very special, don't forget to take this opportunity to have
a portrait taken of you and your partner together. Have the photographer take individual
shots of each of the children, as well as all of the siblings together. Have a special
portrait taken with Mom and the children for Dad's desk at work, and vice-versa.
When selecting clothing, keep in mind what everybody is wearing to keep harmony with
the overall look. If in doubt always bring a backup in the car handy.

Lights! Camera! Action!

Bring a brush and wipes to tame fly-away strands of hair, dribbles etc...
For toddlers, bring a dry snack and drink, something that will not soil their clothes.
Arrive a few minutes early. Don't let last minute traffic and delays create stress for
this important event! Let the photographer interact with your child to make him/her more
comfortable. If your child cries, don't worry our photographers can usually stop the tears
within moments! Most importantly, have fun! A professional portrait is meant to capture
the moment, and not force it!
