Live dates in UK and USA planned for October/November 2017. // I really don’t know much about The Raincoats except that they recorded some music that has affected me so much that whenever I hear it I’m reminded of a particular time in my life when I was (shall we say) extremely unhappy, lonely and bored. If it weren’t for the luxury of putting on that scratchy copy of The Raincoats’ first record, I would have had very few moments of peace. Kurt Cobain. // Side 1 Fairytale in the supermarket Side 2 In love, Adventures close to home
