Fans Only (2004)

Details Release Date: Jan 20, 2004; DVD Release Date: Jan 20, 2004

A charming (if seemingly endless) DVD compilation of home movies, performance clips, and documentary footage from a band who knows how obsessive its followers can be. It's as cutesy as you would expect (lots of Super-8 footage of unfashionably dressed people playing with their dogs, blowing bubbles, and shopping for breakfast cereal), but it's also a revealing look at a bunch of Scots who make deliciously intimate pop while generally hiding behind their CD covers. GIVE 'EM POINTS FOR TRYING In one segment, the crew attempts Jorge Ben's ''Minha Menina'' on a Brazilian television show, after which the host deadpans, ''Fantastic!... You managed to sing in Portuguese, and nobody understands a fucking word that you said!''
