Shambolic And Stunning Live Cut From The Verlaines

Recorded in July 1987, this live cut from The Verlaines really gives you a taste of the genius of the band. Things sound like they are falling apart around Graeme Downes but his sharp lyrics and slashing guitar hold things together.

A criminally underrated band that sometimes got overshadowed by label-mates The Chills, The Verlaines were just amazing at their peak.
