According to the scoops at NME.com, late '80s indie rock pioneers, the boy-girl duo The Vaselines, have announced they will reform to play one day in the traveling Scottish festival Tigerfest. The band originally disbanded in 1989, but emerged for one final show supporting Nirvana in 1990... and they also came out of hibernation to play a charity show with Belle & Sebastian on April 24 of this year. Though no official word has been announced by either the band or the festival, NME.com reveals that members of Belle & Sebastian will be playing on stage alongside the original Vaselines.
The band is best known for their debut and only album, Dum Dum, but perhaps even more so for being the late Kurt Cobain's "most favorite songwriters in the whole world." Looking at the band's reformation track record, it seems that the rumors could indeed be true. If so, the band is set to play the May 16 date of Tigerfest along with fellow '90s icon Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake.
