Hot Bands Cold Prospects

Rolling Stone's annual "Hot" issue has anointed the Scottish guitar act Teenage Fanclub this year's "hot band" of the planet. While be-nighted mall kids rush for the group's new album, "Bandwagonesque," savvy touts can kiss another promising future goodbye. Past winners - Enuff Z'Nuff, Sonic Youth, Fire Town and the Replacements - all parlayed the notoriety into career stasis or obscurity.
