7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 25th June 2015
I have always viewed 18 Wheeler as being a poor man's Teenage Fanclub as they seem to be coming from a similar place musically but just don't seem to be as accomplished. Still, there are some nice moments on "Formanka", their 2nd album which was released in 1995. "Drought" and especially "Steel Guitars" are early highlights - probably the best two songs on the album. "Winter Grrrl" stands out later on as does "The Track" which could almost fit on Teenage Fanclub's "Thirteen" album. They may have looked on with envy at Teenage Fanclub's ability to master the indie-pop nugget as two years after this they changed direction, gave up on guitars and tried some electronic and sample-based stuff for their 3rd and final album, "Year Zero". The single, "Stay" got some airplay on Radio 1.
