Just picked up their new cd "Enter the Vaselines." It's been pretty enjoyable.Here's my question, did they make any other albums besides the Green & Pink EPs, and A Complete history??

Isn't that amazing that Kurt Cobain worshipped these guys when he was young, and he's been dead for sixteen years now, and they're putting out their second album, like, NOW?!?

Crazy world.

Looks like another album is going to appear in the future: via Antiquiet:

Best known for penning three songs (Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam, Son of a Gun, Molly’s Lips) that Nirvana would end up covering live, The Vaselines are back with their second record in four years. Titled V For Vaselines, the record consists of ten new tracks from the Edinburgh duo that came about when Frances McKee wanted to “write some really short punk rock songs, just get into people’s ear really straight away, and then get out of there really quickly” according to Eugene Kelly.

Self produced at Mogwai’s studio Castle of Doom, the record features contributions from fellow Glasgow rockers Stevie Jackson from Bell & Sebastian, Michael McGaughrin of the 1990s, Paul Foley of Mandrake Shepherd, Sons and Daughters’ Scott Patterson, Teenage Fanclub’s Frank McDonald and Graeme Smillie of Olympic Swimmers. The record is due out September 29th via Rosary Music. View the track list and hear the new cheery eyed, wild guitar driven ‘One Long Year’ below. You can even download it for free from Soundcloud.

Track List V For Vaselines:

1. “High Tide Low Tide”
2. “The Lonely L.P.”
3. “Inky Lies”
4. “Crazy Lady”
5. “Single Spies”
6. “One Lost Year”
7. “Earth Is Speeding”
8. “False Heaven”
9. “Number One Crush”
10. “Last Half Hour” ... this-fall/

Yep. I do love The Vaselines. Alongside Primal Scream, Lowlife, The Farm and plenty others, I suppose they sort of kept alternative music alive in Britain, during that dark period of rubbish pop music in the late 80s.
