The Vaselines reunite for First ever US show

The Vaselines have reunited for their first ever show in the US, at the subpop music festival


Though they have only 19 official recordings to their credit and broke up just after their lone full-length was released, the Vaselines have etched a special place in the hearts of many. Chief among these is a certain Kurt Cobain, whose popular grunge rock outfit Nirvana famously covered no less than three of those 19 Vaselines jams, including one (in slightly modified form) before a sizable television audience on "MTV Unplugged".

And hey, the second appearance ain't too shabby either. The Vaselines will help celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's onetime label home Sub Pop at Redmond, Washington's Marymoor Park on July 12. Sub Pop also, of course, helped keep the Vaselines on the map by releasing The Way of the Vaselines: A Complete History back in 1992. You scratch my back, I'll rock yours.

Already rife with reunions from the Fluid, Green River, Seaweed, Red Red Meat, and now the Vaselines, Sub Pop's SP20 bash has turned up the nostalgia a couple more notches with the addition of defunct French punks Les Thugs and reunion-happy Canadian alt-rockers Eric's Trip. As previously reported, the fest takes over the aforementioned park near Seattle from July 12-13.
