New Nirvana Recording Scoffs at Your Record Collection


Usually a twentieth anniversary means you and your spouse head to Bermuda or your company honors you with a gold watch. If it's a birthday, and you live in the States, you get jack shit but another year of waiting before you can legally purchase 40 oz. malt liquor at your favorite corner store. If you're a certain band from a certain coffee-loving city in the Pacific Northwest, it means you get a deluxe, remastered, reissue of your first album, ya know, the one before that dude from Foo Fighters joined. (That dude rules!)

The folks at Sub Pop understand milestones, and so the label is set to flesh out Nirvana's classic debut Bleach with a boat load of extra features and cool shit that Courtney Love may or may not have a problem with, depending on what day it is. More importantly, the kingpin label has made "Scoff," an unreleased song recorded live at Portland's Pine Street Theatre on February 9th, 1990, available for free download. The show also features Nirvana fan favorite "Love Buzz" and a cover of the Vaseline's "Molly's Lips." Check "Scoff" below, then check out this absurd three part interview Canadian music journalist, and interviewer extraordinaire, Nardwuar did with Kurt, Kris and Courtney in 1991. Nothing says grunge like pizza and cigarettes.
