The Vaselines, who originally disbanded in 1990, are set to play a rare show in the Uncut Arena at Latitude Festival next month, it has just been confirmed (June 23).
The cult Scottish indie band, who found a wider audience after Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain professed his love of their music and covered Vaselines tracks “Molly’s Lips” and “Jesus Don’t Want Me For A Sunbeam”, have recently reformed to play a few select shows.
Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee recently played their first London show in 20 years (March 27) to a sold-out enthusiastic crowd, now you can have a chance to see the indie icons at Latitude.
Also newly confirmed for next month’s diverse event in Suffolk are the acclaimed alt.country rockers The Broken Family Band who will play the outdoor Obelisk Arena stage.
They join previously announced main stage performers Doves, Regina Spektor, Pretenders, Patrick Wolf, Phoenix and of course, headliners Pet Shop Boys, Grace Jones and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
The Uncut Arena also has US folk siren (likened to Joanna Newsom), 2009 hot tips Red Light Company and pop-maestro collective Miike Snow all performing on the bill which already includes Gossip, Spiritualized, Bat For Lashes, Fever Ray and Magazine.
