The 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind arrived with much fanfare last month. But rarities from the Seattle grunge legends continue to hit the Web and the Boston Phoenix has got its hands on a recording of of the band’s show at now-shuttered club ManRay in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on April 18, 1990 — before Dave Grohl joined as the drummer.
The crowd only numbered between 60 to 75 people, according to the Phoenix. They saw Nirvana play future Nevermind cuts “In Bloom” and “Breed” along with original songs from debut album Bleach and covers of both Shocking Blue’s “Love Buzz” and the Vaselines’ “Molly’s Lips.” According to the Nirvana Live Guide, Kurt Cobain poured an entire pitcher of water on then-drummer Chad Channing, and bass player Krist Novoselic sang a bit of Madonna’s “Like a Virgin.” This recording cuts out after “Stain,” but check out the full set list below; while the sound quality is fairly typical bootleg fare, Cobain’s throat-rending howls are unmistakable.
Nirvana set list, April 18, 1990 (ManRay; Cambridge, Massachussets): “School” “Love Buzz” (Shocking Blue cover) “Dive” “Scoff” “About a Girl” “Spank Thru” “Breed” “In Bloom” “Big Cheese” “Molly’s Lips” (Vaselines cover) “Been a Son” “Stain” “Negative Creep” “Blew” “Stay Away”
The Red Tape is probably the most famous mixtape that DJ Quik recorded during the late 80s. He began his career making mixtapes with his friends Hi-C, AMG and 2nd II None; thanks to these mixtapes he gained a record deal with Profile Records. Real Doe is infamous for being the song that started the long-running dispute between DJ Quik and MC Eiht. The fact that Quik was a Blood and Eiht was a Crip didn’t help matters either. The tape featured Quik’s hit Bourn and Raised In Compton as well as a bunch of lyrics that would eventually end up on official releases by the crew. The Red Tape is the most popular of DJ Quik’s underground tapes and it supposedly came out in 1987. Some great Funky West Coast Gangsta Rap.
