The Vaselines are one of those bands that nearly everyone has heard of but rarely listened to courtesy of some heavy support from one of the biggest 90s bands of all time. Kurt Cobain covered these guys with Nirvana so many times that he practically helped fund their entire careers with the subsequent Nirvana royalties and nearly all of us have heard “Jesus Don’t Want Me For A Sunbeam” thanks to a certain MTV unplugged album.
Thing is The Vaselines are actually really cool. Like cooler than you are and twice as old which is a tricky task. High Tide Low Tide is the opening track front he upcoming album “V for Vaselines” which is gonna hit the stores on the 29th of September. As a side note, if any of you are as lucky as me to live in Edinburgh then they’re playing Caves in the city on the release date of the album so see you there.
