The Raincoats perform "The Raincoats"

Originally released in 1979 by Rough Trade the Raincoats debut album was remastered and re-released in November 2009. It's been 30years since they emerged from the musically fertile West London squat scene that also produced the The Clash. Since then they've seen a mid 90's resurgence of interest, facilitatied by Kurt Cobain (who claimed their music cheered him up!) and now ATP and Don't Look Back have got together to present a live performance of their first album in it's entirety.

Tickets for the one-off show at the London Scala on the 20th of May 2010 are on sale now.
