The Vaselines Record Second Album After 20 Years

The Vaselines, one of Kurt Cobain’s favourite bands, will release their second album 20 years after their first in September.

The Vaselines are Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee from Edinburgh, Scotland. Cobain was so obsessed with The Vaselines that he named his daughter Frances Bean Cobain after Frances McKee.

Nirvana later covered their songs 'Molly's Lips', 'Son of a Gun' and 'Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam'.

The Vaselines released their one and only album 'Dum-Dum' in 1989 and broke after soon after.

In 2006, McKee and Kelly got back together for a show and have performed occasional shows since then.

Yesterday, their website went live with the news that the second album 'Sex With An X' will be released by Sub Pop in September.

According to Sup Pop, the album was "recorded outside Manchester at the Analogue Catalogue studio in Mossley with Julie McLarnon engineering and produced by Jamie Watson who produced that first album Dum Dum, Sex With An X was recorded the old-fashioned way: twelve songs in thirteen days (plus two b-sides). The Vaselines ca. 2010 is Eugene and Frances with guest musicians Stevie Jackson and Bob Kildea from Belle & Sebastian on guitar and bass, and Michael McGaughrin from the 1990s on drums. 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".

A free download of the new song 'I Hate The 80s' is available at the site.

    The Los Angeles-based band behind the critically acclaimed debut album, Movies, THE STRIPMINERS announce the November 13 release of their sophomore record Frail Hope Ranch. THE STRIPMINERS are Brett Anderson, vocalist for rock & roll dynamos The Donnas, Paul Stinson from The Radishes, producer/guitarist Scrote (Daniel Johnston, Puscifer), Brett Simons (Brian Wilson, Fiona Apple, Melissa Etheridge) on bass, DJ Bonebrake (of X fame) on drums and Holland Greco (Anais Mitchell, The Peak Show) multi-instrumentalist, singer.
