Episode 312

Songs To Learn And Sing - Episode 312

This episode features Overweight But Over You, one of the standout tracks from Sex With An X the brilliant new album by The Vaselines. The album is out on Sub Pop Records and below is the video for the title track. I saw the band live in 2009 in Barcelona at Primavera Sound and they played a fantastic set of old and new tracks. Sex With An X was "produced by Jamie Watson who produced that first album Dum Dum" back in 1990. Eugene and Frances were accompanied by guest musicians Stevie Jackson and Bob Kildea from Belle & Sebastian on guitar and bass, and Michael McGaughrin from the 1990s on drums. 

Before that Primavera Sound show the band had played a short tour of the US in support of Sub Pop's compilation Enter The Vaselines. While in Seattle they recorded a brilliant live session for local station KEXP 90.3 FM, two of the tracks are below. The band tour the UK in September and the US in October (including six shows with Dum Dum Girls). Unfortunately there's no news yet of a Dublin show.
