Scottish indie icons The Vaselines are, in some circles, best known for the songs of theirs Nirvana covered - Molly's Lips, Son Of A Gun, and Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam, while they in turn gained some notoriety for their cover of Divine's anthem You Think You're A Man. Originally released in 1992, Sub Pop have done the honourable thing and announced the all-encompassing collection The Way Of The Vaselines for vinyl reissue, its first ever time on wax. Bringing together the band's legendary EPs Son Of A Gun and Dying For It, as well as their debut album Dum-Dum, there's no better way to fall back in love with this cult favourite from Glasgow. - Flying Out

The Vaselines have long been celebrated by musicians and music enthusiasts across genres and across the globe, including super-fan Kurt Cobain. Emerging in the mid-eighties under the wing of The Pastels’ Stephen McRobbie, The Vaselines came to define the sly wit and irresistible pop hooks of the era’s Scottish indie scene. Sub Pop's remastered reintroduction of The Way of The Vaselines is an opportunity for those already familiar with the Scottish band's brief career to delve deeper into their body of work, while those new to their music can experience firsthand why so many hold them in such high regard.

Originally mastered from a cassette tape (and since remastered on much better equipment in the new millennium), The Way of The Vaselines compiles the band's two EPs (Son of a Gun and Dying for It) and their sole LP release (Dum-Dum). This 2023 edition is the first ever vinyl release of The Way of The Vaselines, which originally came out on CD in 1992.
