I've always wondered why The Vaselines didn't reform around the time that one Kurdt Kobanian was all over their tracks, it seemed like such an opportune time. Anyway, twenty years on and they've finally decided to join the 'reform and play at ATP Krew' and who can blame 'em, it looks like a good laugh. 'Sex With An X' is exactly what you'd expect, a simplistic three chord pop song with a memorable vocal line you can sing along to on first listen. I'd have preferred a little more dirgyness in the instrumentation but you know how it is when bands mature. B-side 'Roaster' more than makes up for it. It's a heavier more magical combination that reminds me why I love the band so much. The vocal hints at a psych/shoegaze angle and the guitars are totally rocking. Poor Cobain, bet he didn't consider the hidden benefits of sticking around on planet Earth. Nirvana/Vaselines/Shonen Knife tour anybody?
