Biography

There are several artists named ‘Nirvana’;

1) Nirvana was an American band. The band formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987, and it was part of the Seattle scene of the late 80s, alongside bands like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. As their popularity rose, became a dominant genre on American and Canadian radio and music television during the early-to-mid ’90s.

In late 1987, Cobain and Novoselic recruited drummer Aaron Burckhard (1987–1988).The three practiced material from Cobain’s Fecal Matter tape. After losing contact with Burckhard, the pair instead practised with Dale Crover of the Melvins, and Nirvana recorded its first demos in January 1988. Their first single, a cover version of “Love Buzz”, a song by Dutch group ‘Shocking Blue’, was released in November 1988 on the Seattle independent record label Sub Pop. Their debut album, ‘Bleach’, was produced by Jack Endino and released in June 1989. Later that year, the band recorded the ‘Blew EP’ with producer Steve Fisk.

At the start of the new decade, the band commenced their first recording sessions to the follow-up album with producer Butch Vig, substituted their drummer by Dave Grohl and signed to DGC Records. The result, ‘Nevermind’, would eventually sell over seven million copies in the United States, and over 30 million worldwide.

    Nirvana are actually under-rated if you listen to the whole records. [2] Exactly. And Cobain is severely underrated if you listen to his solo demos.

    Ебать, у всех хейтеров рега на ласте 2015 года. Откуда вы понабежали, бесполезные злые школьники? Слушайте свое новомодное говно молча, никто вас не трогает.

    "Если вы находитесь в комнате и вдруг почувствовали запах говна, то не беспокойтесь, возможно вы не обосрались, а где-то поблизости зазвучал дебютный альбом легендарной, как тампоны, группы Nirvana - Bleach. И, возможно, даже песня “Blew”, которая представляет из себя нескончаемый поток первобытного ядерного пердежа с кусочками соло, сыгранными сломанными пальцами. На просторах песни Курт так тужится, что он мог бы родить 300 спартанцев. Правда в итоге Курт родил 11 фекальных композиций, где выкрутил на своем инструменте ручку баса до предела или до пердела, до полного пердела. Взять песню “Floyd the Barber” или “School”, где Курт играет пердалищно крутой как яйца единорога-трансвестита рифф, уделывая современных корщиков. Я уж не говорю про “Paper Cuts”, которая звучит как запор у Джонатана Дэвиса из Korn. Единственным ярким пятном в этом царстве дерьмостраданий является “About a Girl”, потому что в ней гитары чисты..." http://rock-review.ru/reviews/18286-nirvana-bleach.html
