An undiscovered scots' treasure
The lady in the photo above is one Frances McKee, perhaps best known to a genration of indie fans as the lady who was in the Vaselines (Kurt Cobain's favourite band etc..etc..).
Having posted on the Vaselines a couple of weeks back, I thought I'd post a couple of songs by her band from the early part of the decade, Suckle. These two tracks appeared on compilations on the seminal Chemikal Underground label, which may well be your best place of sourcing them to buy, gievn that they are not on either iTunes or emusic in the UK.
By the way, I knew Kurt Cobain loved their music, but I hadn't realised that his and Courtney Love's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, was named after her.
