The Vaselines

Kurt Cobain favourites The Vaselines have been enjoying a veritable Indian summer since core members Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee officially reunited in 2008, though you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who preferred 2010 comeback album Sex with an X to the group's 1989 debut, Dum-Dum. It's fitting, then, that The Vaselines will be reprising the latter record in its entirety on their latest Japan tour, as part of HMV's new Get Back Session gig series. Support on both nights comes from Japanese rockers playing with their softer side projects: Mo'some Tonebender's Kazuhiro Momo gets folksy with Tape Echos on Thursday, then Number Girl's Shutoku Mukai mines the back catalogue of Peter Gabriel with Leo Imai in Kimonos on Friday.
