the nevermind sessions

Posted by gregor on Thursday, July 28th, 2011

well, ill be damned! nirvana’s nevermind is turning 20, or already has. i try not to keep track of when albums have come out, cause inevitably it makes me feel really fuckin old. this momentous occasion/birthday is not helping at all in the feeling old department. regardless of my aging issues, at the time of its release to say it made an impact in my life would be the understatement of the decade. i was already a fan of bleach, but when i first heard nevermind, it spoke to me like no record had before. strangely enough though, as the years have passed i actually listen to bleach more than any of their releases. even with that said, nevermind influenced my listening habits huge time, and without it, im not sure where i would have ended up? here are the demos/sessions from one of the records that changed my musical life, nirvana’s nevermind.

1. in bloom
2. breed
3. stay away
4. polly
5. dive
6. lithium
7. sappy
8. here she comes now
9. aneurysm
10. drain you
11. endless, nameless
12. stain
13. even in his youth
14. aero zeppelin
15. verse chorus verse
16. i hate myself and want to die
17. marigold
18. moist vagina
19. gallons of rubbing alcohol flow through the strip (472)

out of seattle

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

i am not sure whats going on with this compilation of live tracks, but its called out of seattle. i am guessing its a fan made comp, which if it is thanks to you. i only say that cause out of the 6 bands highlighted, 2 of em really have nothing to do with seattle. sure the afghan whigs were signed to sub pop at one point and soul asylum was kinda lumped in with all the seattle bands back then. so, it makes some kind of sense, i suppose. anyway, i dont have dates or anything, but figured id post it anyway.

1. nirvana – school
2. soundgarden – hunted down
3. alice in chains – them bones
4. pearl jam – deep
5. nirvana – smells like teen spirit
6. afghan whigs – retarded
7. soul asylum – black gold
8. pearl jam – alive
9. nirvana – drain you
10. alice in chains – junkhead
11. soul asylum – somebody to shove
12. nirvana – about a girl
13. soundgarden – swallow my pride
14. pearl jam – leash
15. alice in chains – would?
16. nirvana – sliver
17. nirvana – breed

disc 2
1. nirvana – floyd the barber
2. soundgarden – entering
3. soul asylum – runaway train
4. nirvana – aneurysm
5. alice in chains – angry chair
6. pearl jam – once
7. nirvana – polly
8. alice in chains – dirt
9. nirvana – come as you are
10. afghan whigs – white trash party
11. nirvana – lithium

teenage angst has paid off well, now i'm bored and old

Posted by gregor on Sunday, April 27th, 2008

nirvanasliverposter.jpg

morning, amigos! thanks for all the warm wishes and such. tis truly appreciated. sadly, my time to enjoy the wee child was short lived because i had to be back at work this weekend. my company doesnt offer any kind of paid maternity leave, for dads. to be fair, i could take unpaid leave or use vacation time, but neither of those options sound appealing at this point. btw, my company stresses family first. yeah… but again, thanks.

let me preface this by stating that i have seen two burlesque shows in my lifetime and neither of which left me feeling anything other than a tingling in the nether regions. so, can someone explain to me the appeal or all the critical praise for dita von whatevertherest is? i have seen some of her performances and calling them “amazing,” as some have, seems a wee bit of an overstatement. the latest i saw was a brief clip of her performing topless in a champagne glass with an ever classy cointreau logo draped in back of her, which, again, caused a shit load of b to c list celebs to gush over her like a squirt flick. until i get such praise for rubbing my junk in a vat of newcastle i will fail to recognize her to be nothing more than a chick that likes to show her tits a lot, as nice as they are.

more in depth posting will resume, tomorrow. in the mean time…

here is what i think is the last known nirvana recording which is commonly referred to as roma, which took place on 2.22.94.

i really got nothing for you up here today

Posted by gregor on Thursday, September 20th, 2007

can one or two of you fine peeps do me a solid? i am testing out this new theme but i seem to be having an issue when viewing it with internet explorer. for those of you using ie, can you either confirm or deny that when you click on a single post, the sidebar is all the way at the bottom of the page? kisses, greg.

oh, yeah if you are looking for an internship and are in the new york area domino records is looking for someone. they are saying that you must be available at least one full day a week, be committed to at least a 3 – 6 month internship, have a knowledge of their catalogue, friendly, focused, blah blah and you must get virtually hard or wet at that prospect of working at domino. if this sounds exciting and you think you are more than capable, email them at radio@dominorecordco.com

i forgot to mention that the teenage prayers are playing at star bar, atlanta, tomorrow evening as part of the atlantis music fest. check em out and report back.

if you are a new yorker, please do go check beirut’s two performances as part of the wordless music series. well, in this case there will be words, but thats really not the point. tonights show is at the brooklyn masonic temple and their performance on the 24th is at ny society for ethical culture. tickets are a measely 25 bucks and doors open up @ 6.30. upcoming participants in the series are grizzly bear on 11.3 and fat cat recording artist max richter, who is making his first ever us concert appearance.

wordlesss music

i cant say i was a huge azure ray fan, but i was a big fan of the ladies of azure ray – orenda fink in particular. well, azure ray is no more, but fear not orenda has a new band, art in manila, and a new record, set the woods on fire, out now saddle creek. art in manila are out on tour, right now, with rilo kiley. orenda will be pulling double duty during the tour as not only the leading lady of art in manila but a member of rilo kiley during their performances.

check out this outtake from 1900′s cold and kind entitled “everybody’s got a collection.” cold and kind comes out on 10.2 and they are playing a few shows with oakley hall. check their myspace page for dates, including info on the record release party at the empty bottle on the 12th.

on a presumably cold night this past february in chicago, the men of backyard tire fire took the stage for a sold out show at the double door. that show featured the band playing their most excellent vagabonds and hooligans in its entirity. didnt make it to the show? no problem, they have the entire show available for download on their site, for free bitches! they are starting a fall tour on oct 5 at the university of illinois and along the way they will share the stage with jason isbell, craker, lynyrd skynard, and phonograph. check their site for exact dates. here are a couple of tracks from the show..

here is a very cool comp of the originals of some of the more popular nirvana covers. even i have never heard the original “love buzz.” another idea i had been playing with but yet have been to lazy to get around to. someone is always one step of me, or is much more ambitious than yours truly.

did you ever have a touch to lose, man?

Posted by gregor on Sunday, March 4th, 2007

kurdt.jpg

thank goodness for wgn! i was about to subject myself to watching some bad fear.net movie on comcast when i noticed that my sox were playin the cubs. perfect television for a particularly chilly/lazy sunday afternoon here in atlanta. i will say this, the cubs have bought themself a pretty fine team this year, and if they dont make it to the playoffs, i dont think they ever will again. as for my boys, they have an outstanding team too, i just hope they can win 95+ games this year. hopefully that will be good enough to get them back to the playoffs. frankly, i think the twins and the tigers were flukes last year.

in other news, the new wilco, sky blue sky, is an interesting listen. i dont know what i was expecting but it definitely wasn’t the songs that make up said record. so, my first listen was not one of pure enjoyment, in fact i think i wasnt very psyched at all. the second listen definitely unfurled a few gems, most notably the latter half of the record including “hate it here,” “walken” and “what light.” there is this weird grateful dead and steely dan vibe that is kinda hard to get past, but also makes the recording kinda endearing.

todays offering is a killer bleach era performance recorded live @ the bling pig in ann arbor, michigan. its not the greatest sound quality, but the energy is pretty spectacular.

1. floyd the barber

2. love buzz

3. dive

4. spank thru

5. breed

6. about a girl

7. big cheese

8. scoff

9. mollys lips

10. stain

11. been a son

12. negative creep

13. blew (240)
