The Raincoats played a kind of folky post punk, formed in 1977 in response to punk’s opening blast. They were also, as everyone always says about them, Kurt Cobain’s favourites, and various punk players passed through their ranks- Palmolive, Ricard Dundanksi, Kate Korus- along with the central duo of Ana da Silva and Gina Birch. This is their surprisingly straight cover version of The Kinks’ Lola.

Camping’s off, number 2 child is ill.
