The Vaselines played at Bimbo's last night. I half wanted to see them, but not enough to actually go out to a show on a Monday night. The Vaselines are a Scottish band/duo best known for Nirvana's love of them. They covered "Jesus Doesn't Want Me for A Sunbeam" on Unplugged, and "Molly's Lips" and "Son of A Gun" on Incesticide.

Which reminds me: Incesticide is a pretty awesome album. My favorite track is "Sliver," which is both sweet and disturbing.

Looking up info on the Vaselines, I came across a fan video for Ice Cube's "No Vaseline," one of the most offensive dis tracks ever. The idea is that Cube's former NWA members were "getting fucked out their cash by a white boy, with no vaseline." From there it devolves into a racist, homophobic, sexist tirade, all over a sample of Brick's "Dazz" and George Clinton's "Atomic Dog." Damn Cube was angry.
