The Vaselines
with guests:
Mister Loveless

Formed in Glasgow in 1987, The Vaselines released two singles and one album, Dum Dum, on the 53rd & 3rd label. Splitting up in 1989, they might have faded into obscurity but for the intervention of a certain band from Seattle. Nirvana covered three Vaselines songs, helping to fuel a growing after-the-fact appreciation of their seedy, two-and-a-half chord, garage pop manifesto. And now, The Vaselines are back with their latest album, Sex With An X, which was recorded the old-fashioned way: twelve songs in thirteen days (plus two b-sides). It may have taken The Vaselines 20 years to get round to making this baby, but it was worth the wait - bringing their solo careers to a climax. The irony has not been lost. Who says indie music can't be fun? No hand-wringing on these tracks - just good clean smut with a twist of bitter.
