New Vaselines Collection Due From Sub Pop

    The near future just got a whole lot brighter for Vaselines fans. The late-’80s Glasgow garage-pop savants only stuck around long enough to record two EPs and one album, but their legend grew when Vaselines obsessive Kurt Cobain (who enthusiastically if ungrammatically called them his "most favorite songwriters in the whole world") and his Nirvana cohorts covered their "Molly’s Lips" and "Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam." Back when Cobain was still north of the ground, Sub Pop turned indiedom at large onto the Scots with the anthology The Way of the Vaselines, but 17 years on, the label is set to unleash the ultimate Vaselines collection. Enter the Vaselines, due out on May 5, includes everything from the former disc, plus a ton of additional material. A double-disc (or triple-LP!) set, it adds previously unreleased demos, as well as  live tracks from shows in ’86 and ’88, and boasts remastering for the studio cuts, adding up to pretty much everything you could ever want, Vaselines-wise.
