• nirvana Palladium, Hollywood 1990 (CD, £8.75)

    CLASSIC, EARLY NIRVANA BROADCAST – PLUS BONUS CUTS.  As the 90’s began, soon-to-be grunge heavyweights Nirvana were rapidly gaining attention; their debut album Bleach had been out 6 months and was becoming a steady seller, while their first international tour in ‘89 had garnered considerable column inches in all the right places. In April 1990, the band entered Smart Studios in Madison, WI with producer Butch Vig to work on their second LP, the as-yet-untitled Nevermind.  Nirvana maintained a rigorous touring schedule throughout 1990, playing 59 dates across North America and the UK, despite losing drummer Chad Channing partway through the year. Melvins’ sticksman Dale Crover would fill in for a seven-date West Coast tour supporting Sonic Youth in August, and it was during this jaunt that Nirvana performed at The Palladium, Hollywood, on the 17th of the month. The group’s full set from that night is now included on this CD for the first time, offering an exceptional quality recording of this legendary show.  Bonus tracks are taken from rare radio sessions, which includes Nirvana’s first ever broadcast on KAOS FM, recorded at Evergreen State College in 1987, plus a seldom-heard set from Dutch station VPRO in 1991.  TRACKLIST 1.
