Re-enter The Vaselines: the Scottish Duo Announce a New Album

The Vaselines

The twee pop duo the Vaselines (Eugene Kelly and Francess McKee) inspired hundreds of indie musicians in the 80s and 90s (namely Kurt Cobain) and gained a fervent following, despite playing together for a short time (the band formed in 1986) and releasing one official album and a handful of singles. Posthumous fame is just how life in the music business rolls sometimes.

In this case, popularity has given the band famous for songs such as “Son of a Gun” and “Molly’s Lips” new reasons to keep a good thing going — the Vaselines have  just announced a forthcoming album, Sex With an X (to be released 9/14/10 on Sub Pop).  The great success of their Enter the Vaselines deluxe edition last year surely partially spurred the creation of new stuff from the salty Scots and will also mean  an English/Scottish tour for fans on the other side of the pond. Catch a peek at the single from the new Vaseline’s album, below.
