Premiere: An Unreleased Live Nirvana Song From the Bleach Reissue (20th anniversary)
Pitchfork ^ | Wednesday, September 30 | no byline

Posted on 10/01/2009 9:14:52 AM PDT by a fool in paradise

On November 3, Sub Pop will reissue Nirvana's classic 1989 debut Bleach. The 20th anniversary deluxe edition, which will be available on CD and 180 gram white vinyl, will include a complete live recording of a 1990 gig at Portland's Pine Street Theatre. Bleach producer Jack Endino mixed the previously unreleased show from the original tapes. Now, we've got one track from it.

Endino really did a hell of a job on "Scoff", which sounds about a million percent crispier than your average live recording. Kurt Cobain's voice here is even more ragged than on the Bleach version, if that's even possible, and the song just bangs. You owe it to yourself to check this one out...

Nirvana is not the most over-rated band in history.

But pretty close.

More meaningless yelling while thrashing perfectly good instruments.

Right up there with REM, Pearl Jam, and Led Zepplin.

Nirvana was a band.

They should’ve called themselves the New Originals.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nirvana_(UK_band)

“Nirvana were a United Kingdom-based progressive rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s...”

I loved Nirvana.
They were the perfect antidote to the bubble gum pop crap and hair bands that dominated the airwaves at the time.

Exactly. Nirvana was an excellent band, and they were the death nell to 80s hair bands. We can all thank them for burying Winger, Wasp, Poison, etc.

Congratulations to Dave Grohl on his continued success with the Foo Fighters.

Like Elvis and the Beatles before them, they didn’t invent grunge but they were the vehicle that ushered in musical change. Take them out of the equation and it might not have gotten as big.

Also have heard it said that grunge/alternative reinvigorated MTV.

But now, there are “alternative rock” stations in towns that have no rock and roll stations. Alternative to what?

Just like the “daring” art of the 1920s-1950s was anti-art. Conceptual. Now it is the establishment.

Holy crap. I just realized that it has been 15 years since Kurt's suicide.

I was 23, not yet married and had no kids. The time has flown by!
