The Raincoats is the debut studio album by English rock band the Raincoats. It was released in 1979 on Rough Trade Records. The album is perhaps best known for its off-kilter cover of "Lola" by the Kinks. The album's seventh track, "The Void", was notably covered by Hole in 1994. In May 2010, the band performed the album in its entirety in London.

In November 1979 we released our first album 'The Raincoats'. com and via songkick. 122. 21. Fairytale in Glasgow.

The Raincoats Tracklist. 1. Fairytale in the Supermarket Lyrics. 2. No Side to Fall In Lyrics. This album was very revolutionary for the time it was released. It blends post-punk (that was a new thing in 1979) with a very experimental sound. It also has a awesome cover of the song Lola by The Kinks and a cover of fellow post-punk band The Slits. The Raincoats Q&A.

The Raincoats is a beginning, but it is also a record about beginnings. In its songs you hear a cultural genesis story. The Raincoats were a group of women who were, in part, just learning to play their instruments, but their debut album also coincides with the start of a whole artistic sensibility, one of fearless and knowing amateurism. These overcast songs are charged with the feeling of newness that comes with realizing you are not what you expected.

The all-female British band The by Kurt Cobain in the early ‘90s-released three studio albums between 1979 and 1984. Their self-titled debut had a fiercely independent flavor that didn’t quite fit the post-punk mold of the time. With scratchy violin, spare guitar/bass, and polyrhythmic layers of clattering percussion, The Raincoats mined the sort of tribal, off-kilter territory that The Slits were also exploring then. In fact, in 1979 Slits drummer Palmolive left her band of three years for The Raincoats. Gems not to miss are the first single, Fairytale in the Supermarket (not on the original album), No Side to Fall In, a cover of The Kinks’ Lola, and the bittersweet In Love. The Raincoats is a priceless piece of rock history. Cool notes: Mayo Thompson of The Red Krayola was a producer here, and Lora Logic of X-Ray Spex contributed sax work.

Gorisar
My copy contains a small green booklet. Was this part of the release, or was it handed out to buyers at record stores, or something?
Narder
you mean 'the raincoats booklet'? it was sold separately (for 20p from rough trade) sometime between the first two albums (in its discussion of 1977 it says that "gina had "no one's little girl" which we never did again til 1980"; while there are several song lyrics from 'odyshape' there's no mention of it by name, just a future recording plan). it's not impossible that rough trade later paired copies of the lp and booklet, but my suspicion is that the size means many buyers will have put it inside the s/t album sleeve so as not to lose it, and copies hit the secondhand market that way. (tl;dr version: it's not part of the release, and the title refers to the band, not to this album).
Bralore
This is an extremely late comment, but anyone who says "I never really got Nirvana" doesn't have a clue about music. I can understand not liking them, but that comment shows the inability to see music objectively and in its context. She probably has Rumors listed as her top 3 greatest albums of all time.
Zulkishicage
I like Nirvana, Raincoats and Fleetwood Mac, in or out if any "context" but my own. MV is my favourite Nirvana track, which may say something about my personal taste, or state of mind.Cobain didn't live long enough to rave about Jim Shepard / V-3, but if any Nirvana fans see this comment I'd recommend checking out the "Photograph Burns" album. Pretty sure they got signed on the back of the grunge boom (which they were not part of), and pretty sure he would have loved it.
adventure time
I have many "a clue" about music and I don't give a f*** to Nirvana (US) either. Be tolerant man.
Danial
Hi all, I recently picked up a copy of this as an LP but I can't seem to find my release anywhere.Initially I thought it was a first pressing - identical labels, same category number - but the etching in the run-off reads something different.On the A side it reads 'Construction and destruction of myths and melodies' and on the B side it reads 'Green is fab.'If anyone has any info on this please let me know - I'd really appreciate it! Thanks.
Clandratha
they might well be simultaneous pressings from different factories? from jenn pelly's 33 1/3 book 'the raincoats' (a great book!):"the original 'raincoats' pressing featured an inscription in the vinyl penned by [green] gartside. it read "the construction and deconstruction of myths and melodies" (in the flipside of the wax was scratched "green is fab," and other copies contained the phrases "doing one's mending by oneself" b/w "sew what?"). gartside elaborated on his text: "
Nikobar
Hey man, it was cool of you to reply. At least I know my copy isn't anything special/unique. Definitely an album worth having, for sure.
Thorgahuginn
I have the same copy! Based on the etching, it might be an early repress (3-A-2, 3-B-2) compared to (3-A-1, 3-A-1) which is listed already. Also, Porky chop is shortened to just that. I probably didn't provide anything new to you, and might have just repeated what you said. Great album!
Purestone
I begin to wonder about that review.. "I never got Nirvana either"Carlja's easy judgments have a note of the mysterious
Lamranilv
It's all a matter of taste. The Raincoats were a minimalistic avantgarde folk/art/punk band as were We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Gonna Use It or even the early Fall - some people have no access to their music, others find them essential. This record is simply great! Nowadays MIA is adored by many people. I see myself as a very open-minded music lover with interest in all genres, but I think she's just a waste of time, money and resources (as we Germans say: Verarschung).
Runeshaper
Only all girl band that could compete with the big boys, classic albums.
Moonshaper
Probably the worst record in my collection bought unheard on the back of an NME review. Total utter cr*p, why it is popular is beyond my understanding. But then I never got Nivarna either. Take my advice don't waste your life listening to this. I'm listening to it now just to check and I hate as much as when I bought it.File under Greenham common peace hippies have a sing a long.
Adoranin
I'll take your copy and you can buy me lunch, too! CARLJA1960 Probably the worst record in my collection bought unheard on the back of an NME review.

Gajurus
Agreed. This album is so amateurish it makes their contemporary (rival?) Kleenex a.k.a. LiLiPUT sound like Beethoven. The Slits, on the other hand, to name a band in a similar vein, had some actual musicality and some memorable songs under the shambly image. And the Raincoats did indeed create a stunning masterpiece song, "Shouting Out Loud," on their next LP.
Varshav
Hey . . . . . . . Shut up
Skrimpak
the perfection is boring. this is art. punk art, naivetè, neo-hippy sound. if picasso was a punk musician, he probably would have played with the raincoats.
Dark_Sun
Well, I also bought this on the back of (probably) the same NME review. I found it charming and really got into the band. Much better than The Slits, in my opinion, who are often mentioned in the same breath. I also like Nirvana, though, so... Anyone wanting to take a punt, hurrah for the internet, because unlike back in 1993, you can listen to it online in various places and decide for yourself!
