Having split up in 1989, The Vaselines had somewhat faded into obscurity, subject to music folklore, remembered by a select few. Considering three of their tracks were covered by a certain infamous Seattle rock band, Nirvana, it seems unfair that they have not been held in greater esteem.
Now they’re back with a new album, Sex With an X, already available in the UK and released today in the US and Canada. They’re on tour and we are going to be there to catch up with a great band that have been departed from us for too long. Check this space next week for an honest account of their return.
The Vaselines are appearing at the Bristol Thekla on the 22nd of September, check their website for more tour dates.
