I will be very honest...I’m not a massive fan of The Vaselines. During the original first phase of the band, 3/4 songs apart, I they were pretty mediocre and without the intervention of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana the world wouldn’t have lost anything if The Vaselines has been forgotten completely. Some people point to the fact they were doing the low-fi amateurish thing first ect.. well I think that is debatable but they were certainly bands doing it better, most notable Guided-By-Voices. You can go and watch any young local band I will guarantee they will have at least 3 tunes. Sure the 2 albums they have released since reforming have gone some way to readdress the imbalance between output and reverence but the original phase is average at best that probably didn’t deserve the adulation. Each to his own I suppose. But those 3 songs are great pop songs that Nirvana made they own.
