SON OF A GUN
Last month, these Scottish indie-pop pioneers released their first album in two decades, Sex With an X, and if its not quite up to the standards of the duos delightful late-80s stuffwell, it doesnt really have to be: Rounded out by admirers from Belle and Sebastian and the 1990s, the Vaselines are still touring with a beyond-solid songbook that includes such creepy-cutesy gems as Son of a Gun and Mollys Lips, both of which Nirvana famously covered, thereby ensuring Eugene Kelly and Frances McKees status as post-punk legends.
