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 (1600)

    Awesome. What a band. In my opinion, overrated for what they are popular for, underrated for what they aren’t. Many of their “unreleased” music actually ends up being more creative and original than their pop-produced music. Good job Butch Vig though, in the long run, despite Cobain’s slight disdain towards the production after hearing it cycle over and over again, this is a great record – bar none. Top 50 all time.

    The song marked as verse chorus verse is just another version of sappy. Verse chorus verse goes “Driven conversations, in the back of a room….” or something like that. Awesome site though. Thanks a bunch for posting.
