Molly's Lips

It would be easy to be dismissive of The Vaselines and their shambolic, out of tune songs with tuppence-ha'penny production. But the song has got bags of charm and stays just the right side of twee.

Always had a soft spot for the Vaselines. I quite like the fact that they are a bit shambolic,it almost seems to be a badge of honour amongst some fine Glasgow bands.

I saw a band last night that were very much in the vein of The Vaselines I realised that I am a lot less likely to see the merits in a shambles these days than I once was, especially on a school night! I didn't even bother to find out their name.

I think that you would like Casual Sex, SA, the main band of the evening all spikey angular guitars and smart arsed imagery but too early 80s post punk for me.

I heard something by Casual Sex that I liked recently. Shambolic is good but I find it has to be in small doses. I put on a Rough Trade indie pop comp the other day and 5 or 6 songs in it became a bit much.
