The Vaselines / The Pooh Sticks - Dying For It / Dying For It
The Vaselines sing The Vaselines, and The Pooh Sticks do too!
Recorded in 1987 by Stephen Pastel, The Vaselines' lewd-but-naïve and abrasive-yet-tender, primitivist squall remains a perfect distillation of pop at its most guileless and euphoric, which, as everybody knows, inspired Nirvana.
Backed with The Pooh Sticks postmodern cultural criticism, retro-irony, slavish imitation, and power pop manna - originally released in 1989, it was as high concept as it was lowbrow.
