Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee otherwise known as The Vaselines, were the little known Scottish outfit championed by Kurt Cobain. Unrepentantly 80's Indie with a hint of Velvet Underground production standards, their existence was somewhere between 86 and 89, with a legacy today that is as subtle as their musical output.

There have been a couple of attempts to document The Vaselines work over the years including the excellent All The Stuff and More on Avalanche in 2003, but in 2009 Sub Pop really have surpassed them all with the release of Enter The Vaselines. With 36 tracks including all the well known, the not so well known, the unreleased and the live, this really is a Mecca for all fans of the band as well as those who have not yet had the pleasure of listening to one of the finest bands to come out of the 1980's.

The album begins with the rampant Son of a Gun, a song which starts with a growl from the guitar followed by the beats of the tinniest drum sound known to man, it also has some of the most shockingly bad lyrics known to man, but rather oddly, as a song it's actually quite brilliant.

The album moves forward with Rory Ride Me Raw, a song which we can only assume is about riding a lion although I fear it may have vulgar undertones. Speaking of which, the third track on this album; You Think You're A Man is also crammed with vulgar undertones, in fact saying that the whole album is pretty much filled with them.......but in a fun way obviously.

Track four, Dying For It, is really the first time on this album The Vaselines lose their low-fi feel and go somewhat raw and stompy, and to be fair they do come out the other side with an incredible song.

These guys totally bypassed my radar first time round - I was probably up to my eyeballs in nappies and working overtime to pay the mortgage. Great quirky Indie and the original band who brought us the classic 'Jesus Don't Want Me For A Sunbeam' - my favourite track off Nirvana's Unplugged album. Great stuff!

A true experience into the world of the strange. The Vaselines - often quoted as being Kurt Cobain's favourite band - have collected their output during their most productive years. Allowing insight into a vibrance and energy contained within the groups performance, this compliation gives the listener the chance to relive the experience of seeing the Vaselines live.

Enjoy!

I admit it, I'm inclined towards nostalgia. Give it enough years and the old tat of the past will take on a rosy glow: the creaky old script and wooden acting come to seem innocent and charming; the poor sound mixing evidence of a genuineness that has been lost in these over-produced times. Sometimes, though, even I have to admit that time can be harsh to an artist, and that not everything in the past was terribly good.

Take The Vaselines. I was sort of aware of them first time around, and I sort of remember thinking that they were quite good. `Molly's Lips' featured on an excellent Rough Trade compilation, and I thought it wasn't bad. So, when Sub Pop released this retrospective collection, I gave it a try.

Turns out that the Vaselines were basically a one trick band - two minute songs packed with single entendres sung to basic, rough edged, three chord tunes. And when I say single entendres, I mean lines that would have had Frankie Howerd ringing his hands and lamenting their lack of sophistication. `Rory ride me raw' anyone? (It's about being a horse, says Eugene Kelly. Presumably `Monsterpussy' is about being a cat).

This would be fine. I like Lo-Fi. I'm hugely into the Mountain Goats, and you don't get much lower-Fi than home recording on a ghetto blaster. I love the Sarah label bands that were contemporary with The Vaselines, so I'm happy with make-do-and-mend musicianship and cheesy lyrics. The problem is that, for me at least, if you're going to sacrifice musicianship and high production standards, it should be to showcase your brilliant and sensitive lyrics. But the lyrics on show here are neither.
