Nirvana - Son Of A Gun.

October 21st, 1990 - Nirvana travel to the Maida Vale Studios in London to record “Turnaround”, “Molly’s Lips”, “Son Of A Gun” and “D-7.” The songs were later released on Nirvana’s ‘Hormoaning’ EP in 1992.

The band talked about the session during an October, 1990 interview. Published in the ‘Melody Maker’ newspaper.

Kurt Cobain: "The whole idea of a cover is to have some fun, to try out something a bit different. We’ve never tried to do a straight copy and we’ve never bothered to pull a song apart in order to learn it properly, we’d rather just get up and do it."

Dave Grohl: "The Vaselines’ songs we recorded sounded nothing like the originals at all and, having never heard any of the records until we came out of the studio, I had no choice but to drum and sing the backing vocals my way rather than theirs. But The Vaselines themselves said that they enjoyed what we’d done to their material and that was quite a thrill. I’d like more covers in our live set, but Kurt has problems remembering the words to most of them."

Krist Novoselic: "What the hell does that matter?"

[Kurt Cobain sits in his hotel room with the TV on Beavis and Butt-head]

"I have to admit, I like this. I think I’ve seen every episode. I know so many people like that, I grew up with people like that. Literally. To the tee. I mean, carbon copies. I’ve sat on couches with people like that and smoked pot with them while they critiqued television shows for hours and hours." - Kurt Cobain, 1993.

When did you really start listening and getting interested to Nirvana?

I’ve always listened to Nirvana. I collected the “Nevermind” cassette passed down onto me from my mother in the late 90s which happened to be my first piece of memorabilia I owned from the band. In 2007 is when I actually started collecting and reading into the band’s history, for personal issues, the music helped. Of course, I was already watching the music videos beforehand and was a fan, but 2007 is when I really started becoming interested in all of it. The release of Nirvana’s “MTV Unplugged” to DVD in 2007 was a huge part of that as advertising was making its way across television and the internet and the early uploads of the music videos to Youtube was easily watchable and free to access so why not! A few years after that, and many days built up for collecting, I had enough knowledge about the band’s history and decided to give back to the band and their fans and started all of this and here we are today.
