Song of the Month | The Raincoats

In my humble opinion there’s not enough written about The Raincoats. The post-punk revolutionaries were one of the best bands to come out of the aftermath of the London punk scene.

The band broke up after the release of their third album Moving (1984) but reformed in 1994 after Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain sung their praises and offered them an opening spot on his tour.

More than a decade later though they have not released any new material since Looking in the Shadows (1996) the band are still going strong. They are preparing for a North American tour and are playing ATP in December.

Here’s my favourite Raincoats song ‘No Looking’ which, if you can truly trust YouTube to be an accurate source of information, is a song based on a poem called ‘Breakfast’ by the Jacques Prevert about a Father.
