SONG FOR TODAY: The Vines - 'Factory (Original Demo)'

Back in the early 2000s, I remember hearing about a new group called THE VINES and recall buying a 7" copy of a song I had never heard before, on the strength of the NME's hype.... and this gritty demo version of 'Factory' was the A side of that 7".

Forwards to the present day and the band are releasing a new album 'Future Primitive', their fifth, in April. 

Until then enjoy this... it has a rawness and an enjoyably rowdy charm much more appealing than the version that ended up on the debut album, which went platinum in Australia back in 2003. 

The Vines originally formed as Rishikesh in 1994 in Sydney. They play a musical hybrid of 1960s garage rock and 1990s alternative music.
