For those not aware these two Vaselines were boyfriend/girlfriend in the 1980's so when Nardwuar asks Frances how sex was in the 80's and she replies, "sex was pretty bad"- ouch for Eugene!!! Though she is quick to follow up with the usual scapegoats; youth- okay granted there's a learning curve, uptightness- alright yes it's important to relax (Eugene should have explained that), and then she drops the big all purpose baddie- Catholicism, come come Frances, being Catholic only makes sex hotter, as both myself and any Catholic school girl can testify. Jeez, surprised she didn't throw Thatcher and the dole in the mix at that point. Well in any case all's well that ends well and Frances is still quite the looker- cute accent and all! Maybe it's all that yoga. She's got me craving a jelly donut! (some of this will make more sense after you watch the interview)
After the Nardwuar interview is a clip of the band live in Japan. I hardly ever see live shows, and usually have little interest in reunions, but I think I would venture out of the house to see the Vaselines- it's a strangely sweet rush to hear the roar of the crowd in response to "Son of A Gun" as if we've entered some alternate universe where good music became hugely popular, though its probably just nirvana.
