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.
