  • The only time I remotely liked Nirvana was when they were covering The Vaselines- who are an awesome band, come’ on!

  • Oh right, it’s uncool to like Nirvana… We’ll I’ll cop to liking them a lot. Great band. That video is a great find too, playing for 5 people in Chris’ mom’s house. Humble beginnings. I thought I read that Kurt used to be one of those guys who played back to the audience out of stage fright or shyness or whatever. I wonder if that’s what he’s doing there, or maybe he’s just reading the words off the wall.

    When I got to college I learned that the the Lords of the New Church had played there at a small club the year previously and Stiv had sort of accidentally hung gone too far on stage while pretending to hang himself with the microphone cord, I guess he had some trouble getting it loose. Always bummed that I missed that show. The other great show that everyone talked about from the same year was SNFU.
