1992... what a year... Grunge became the next big thing, Nirvana nearly broke up, Kurt Cobain got married and became a father... And had fights with journalists, Eddie Vedder and Axl Rose. Everything came together when Nirvana picked up some awards at an MTV show.
What happened right before and right after Nirvana released their breakthrough album Nevermind? We try to make sense of the many stories surrounding that period: late 1991. We also listen to some very obscure live performances of the band, like their collaboration with Sonic Youth and The Vaselines and their *ahum* interpretation of The End by The Doors. Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
From Territorial Pissings to Endless, Nameless: in this podcast we listen to and pick apart the second half of Nevermind. Without the big hit singles, there's a lot of interesting stuff to uncover. So have a listen and join our journey through the history and music of Nirvana.
If there's one Nirvana album you know, it's Nevermind. The one with the big hit songs like Smells Like Teen Spirit, Lithium and Come As You Are. We discuss side A of this classic album track by track and share some interesting audio such as isolated instrumental and vocal parts, early demo's and notable cover versions. Make sure to subscribe so you won't miss our take on side B.
