Songs About People # 215 Mary Queen of Scots

'Mary Queen of Scots, wasn't very hot. In her wedding gown...'

Eugenius, a fine Scottish band who emerged from the ashes of The Vaselines and then Captain America when they were forced by a possible court injunction to change their name. Eugene Kelly was praised to the high heavens by Kurt Cobain who also covered a couple of his songs. Eugenius returns the favour here as there's definitely a strong flavour of Nirvana to the song. It's difficult to imagine what the actual Mary Queen of Scots might have thought of it all however.
