The Raincoats artist photo

The Raincoats were formed by Ana Da Silva, and Gina Birch in 1977, signed to Rough Trade records, and released their seminal self titled debut album in 1979. They went on to release a further 3 albums before breaking up in 1984, but decided to reform in 1993 following a meeting with Kurt Cobain who had stated that they were his favourite band of all time. While in London in 1992 Kurt had sought out Ana, wrote about the meeting on Nirvana's 'Incesticide' album, and wrote the sleeve notes for the reissue of their first 3 albums. The Raincoats were due to support Nirvana on their 1994 U.K tour, but sadly Kurt died the week before the tour was due to begin.
They also number Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth and Robert Wyatt amongst their fans. The Raincoats have subsequently released one more album, an E.P, and 2 singles and recently toured North America.
