Note: questo live veniva usato come demo

January 1988 – Barnyard Session {4 track demos}
*C Polly (AKA Cracker) {Acoustic}*C Sappy (AKA Verse Chorus Verse; Seed) {acoustic}*C Spectre (AKA Misery Loves Company; Sad)
Note: “Cracker” / “Seed” / “Sad” are thought to be “Polly” / “Sappy” (AKA Verse Chorus Verse) / “Spectre” (AKA “Misery Loves Company”, but again all is hear-say. The exact date of recording is also up in the air. In the book, Come As You Are, there is a picture of a bio written around summer / fall 1988 that lists “Cracker” / “Seed” / “Sad” as available, so I am leaning towards thinking that they were recorded sometime in 1988.

Note: The Montage of Heck is about 45 minutes in length. It was edited down to Buzz Cut, then further edited down as the intro to the Love Buzz 45. This song probably was recorded at different times, since its a collage.

Note: On a radio broadcast from the UK, Krist mentions that Incesticide contains a Bleach outtake. I assume this means Big Long Now. What else could it be?

Late 1988 Session
*C Bambie Kill*C Clean Up Before She Comes*C Beans (Full Version)
Note: Bambie Kill is actually Bambi Slaughter (I don’t know yet if it is related to the Bambi Slaughter on the Fecal Matter demo). It features Dale Crover on bass and the song was written ‘for fun’.

Spring 1989 – K Records, Olympia WA

Note: this was released on K records. It features: Tamra Ohrmund (voice), Tobi Vale (drums), Louise Olsen (bass), Donna Biddle (gtr), Calvin Johnson (gtr), Kurdt Kobain (gtr).

June 1989 – Evergreen State Session {with Jason Everman}
Do You Love Me [Hard to Believe – A Tribute to Kiss]* Dive {ver}
Note: Dive as on Outcesticide III isn’t from this session. It’s really a soundboard recording of Dive from the 11/18/89 Hanau, Germany show.

August 1989 – Sessions for Mark Lanegan’s The Winding Sheet album
Down In The Dark {Kurt backup vocals} [Winding Sheet]Where Did You Sleep Last Night {Kurt + Chris backing} [Winding Sheet]* Ain’t It A Shame {Kurt lead vocals}* Grey Goose
Note: Mark Lanegan, Chris Novoselic, Kurt Cobain and Mark Pickerel formed a ‘band’ in late summer / early fall 1989. They recorded some Leadbelly songs (Where Did You Sleep Last Night and Ain’t That A Shame), some originals including _Grey Goose_. The name of the band was either going to be Jury or Lithium (Kurt wanted the band to be called Lithium). They played some gigs, but nothing ever really became of this.

September 1989 – Blew EP Sessions {prod by Steve Fisk}
Been A Son [Blew EP]Stain [Blew EP]*C Even In His Youth {ver}*C Polly {Electric}* Token Eastern Song {instrumental ver of Junkyard}

November 24, 1991 – Hilversum, Holland Studios VARA-FM “2 Meter Sessie”*C Here She Comes Now {ver}*C Where Did You Sleep Last Night {ver}*T Love Buzz {ver}
Note: Its rumoured that Nirvana played a song called _Crisco_, but I think that is a fake. I’ve talked to many people who feel the same, and no one who has any certain info about it. I have seen lyrics of it, and I really doubt that they were lyrics Kurt would write. I have talked to some people who have asked the Dutch dj at this session, and there has been no mention of any odd songs played.

November 28, 1991 – BBC Studios “Top of the Pops”

Note: New Poopy is most likely just a different name for ‘tourettes’.

October 1992 – Sessions with Jack Endino
 Mentioned on pg. 48 of the Rolling Stone Cobain book, in his “New Noise for 93” article, Michael Azerrad writes, “Having recorded demos in October [92] with legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino, who produced Nirvana’s first album, Bleach, the band plans to record the album [In Utero] in the spring with Steve Albini.”

Note: 2 Bass Kid is often said to be recorded during the In Utero sessions. I believe it to be just another name for I Hate Myself and Want To Die.

January 27 – 29, 1994, March 1994 – Laundry Room sessions
?* On The Mountain (AKA You Got No Right)?* Man Who Sold The World?* Dough, Ray and Me (AKA Me and My IV)?* Clean-up Before She Comes?* Opinion {doubtful}?* Talk to Me {doubtful}
Note: Rumor has it that a total of 9 songs were done. Frizzle (or Frazzle) has been reported as a song that was done during these session. I suspect that it is a fake by some trader. Nirvana (without Pat Smear) taped some songs right before leaving for Europe in Jan 1994. Then, in March, Kurt did some demos with Pat Smear, Eric (from Hole) and an unkown person. On the Mountain was actually played live on Oct 23rd 1993. Its slightly different than the song Hole did on Unplugged. Supposedly, this might be released (it might have been recorded during a March 1994 studio session). Dough, Ray & Me was also probably recorded then, too – but I have no real idea.The song Clean-up Before She Comes has been released on a bootleg called Dressed For Success. I think that it was a 4-track recording from 1988. This song could have been re-recorded durning March 1994. Maybe Clean-Up was re-recorded. I do remember reading that Kurt had been quite depressed after In Utero because he was all written out (no new songs). Maybe that was a factor in his suicide – I don’t know. If so, then it makes sense that some old, unreleased songs were re-recorded for the March 1994 sessions.There was a plan to release an ep with some songs from that session with some of the Unplugged songs when Nirvana went on tour with Lollapalooza. That ep, was, of course scrapped.

According to CL on the HSB Mailing list:
‘dough ray me is the last song Kurt wrote, mostly in the basement w/ Pat S and Eric- Also “got no right” I found a buncha lyrics on a napkin on the TV- also dr and me was called “Me and My IV” on the napkin.’

Early 1994 – Hole recordig
Asking For It {backup vocals by Kurt}

Demos for Michael Stipe (REM)
??? {Only Kurt}
Note: Michael Stipe and Kurt were never able to record together. Michael Stipe did mention that Kurt had put together some demos for Michael.

Both songs are covers of Flipper songs. Sacrifice is also the second song on the Lysol EP. Melvana: Guitar, Vocals: Buzz Osbourne / Bass: Chris Novoselic / Drums: David Grohl
