Musical Disclosure by Perform School of music Episode 114

Third appointment of the week dedicated to Nirvana.


For this third session dedicated to Nirvana, we'll delve into the era of their final album and Kurt Cobain's last days.


In 1993, Nirvana released their third album, "In Utero," under Geffen Records. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, though it did not achieve the astronomical commercial success of its predecessor, "Nevermind." Seeking a rawer and more authentic sound than "Nevermind," Kurt Cobain chose Steve Albini, known for his work with the Pixies, as the producer. However, the studio experience did not turn out as idyllic as Cobain had hoped. Dissatisfied with the initial results, the band decided to rework some tracks to better align with Cobain's vision. Despite not being a fan of Nirvana initially, Albini understood Cobain's intent to create an uncompromising album that captured the band's true sound.

In June 1993, Nirvana made a surprise appearance at the Mia Zapata Benefit in Seattle, a concert organized to raise funds for the investigation into the murder of The Gits' singer, Mia Zapata. In the fall, they embarked on a U.S. tour, bringing on Pat Smear, formerly of the Germs, as a second guitarist. During this period, they also performed an iconic acoustic set for the MTV Unplugged series, deliberately omitting their most famous songs except for "All Apologies" and "Come as You Are."

The year 1994 began with a European tour, which was cut short due to Kurt Cobain's health issues. He was hospitalized in Rome for an overdose of prescription drugs and alcohol. In April, Cobain, who had long struggled with heroin addiction, was found dead at his home in Seattle in what was ruled a suicide. Released posthumously in 1994, the album "MTV Unplugged in New York" features covers of songs by Meat Puppets, David Bowie, and Lead Belly, becoming Nirvana's final musical testament.


Today's listening recommendation is "Heart-Shaped Box" from the album "In Utero." Enjoy!
