Sure man. Definitely. I'm always into checking out new stuff that comes highly recommended. I liked (quite a bit) what you shared with me some months ago, so yes, please, list that shit up and send it my way.

Nirvana's acoustic Unplugged set, which was released posthumously as an album in 1994, may have provided a hint of Cobain's future musical direction. The record has drawn comparisons to R.E.M.'s 1992 release, Automatic for the People, and in 1993, Cobain himself predicted that the next Nirvana album would be "pretty ethereal, acoustic, like R.E.M.'s last album".

"Yeah, he talked a lot about what direction he was heading in", Cobain's friend, R.E.M.'s lead singer Michael Stipe, told Newsweek in 1994. "I mean, I know what the next Nirvana recording was going to sound like. It was going to be very quiet and acoustic, with lots of stringed instruments. It was going to be an amazing fucking record, and I'm a little bit angry at him for killing himself. He and I were going to record a trial run of the album, a demo tape. It was all set up. He had a plane ticket. He had a car picking him up. And at the last minute he called and said, 'I can't come'".
Ugh. I would pay ridiculous amounts of money and do almost anything to get this fucking album. Such a shame.

I've read it or something like it many times before. Not sure where louder's quote came from, but there are passages that touch on the same things in Heavier Than Heaven, and the issue has been heavily talked about by internet Nirvana fan groups for decades now.

Yes, it's sad as all hell. But as a kid from the Pacific Northwest who was raised on Nirvana and Mudhoney and the like, I spent tons of time wishing I could change things, wishing Nirvana had lasted. But honestly, at this point, between the studio albums, the non-studio albums (Unplugged, Incesticide, Wishkah) the box sets and reissues and the live albums, I feel like we have a great story of a band going from ambitious punks to ... whatever the fuck you'd call the absolute noise pop perfection of In Utero (a NUMBER 1, 7x PLATINUM noise pop record!!!) with the rest acting as handy little epilogues and footnotes, hinting at what could have been without even running the risk of actually BEING what could have been and not being that great. Which would have sucked.

Y'know?

Cobain's death will always sadden me, and will always be a totally fucked up, cult avoidable tragedy, but Nirvana's legacy is pretty much untarnished. Had they followed the pattern of most of their peers they would have released good albums until around '95 — '97 at the latest — and then faded into nothingness like a really pungent fart. They may have burned out, but they burned like the goddamn sun.

Don't be a shit sport. You can't be endlessly insulting and expect no insults in return. Stop sulking.

I see both sides. They left a brilliant discography. But cant help but wonder what could have been.

Yeah, true. But they preceded and thrived before the alt. nation thing, and continues to do so after because they always did things on their own terms, separate from trends and the like. But you're right. And maybe Nirvana would have done it too. I guess I've just found some peace with it all. But I'd still do some crazy shit to hear the would-be In Utero follow-up.

I put it on this morning (OK, it was about 1PM... That's morning for me!) and I couldn't fuckin' believe I'd nearly forgotten how incredibly bitchen "Eyes Like Sparks" is. And it's only one verse "on repeat"!

Stay where you are
Baby, stay away from me
With your eyes like sparks
My heart like gasoline


The whole album R.O.C.K.S. like a motherfucker — in a way it's the solo record Keith Richards should have made but never did nor will. Only BETTER. And Christ on a stick, the HOOKS, the WORDS, the SOLOS, the EXPLOSIVENESS. All done by one cat alone in his basement, yet without the clichés associated with lo-fi shit and one-man bands. Better than Stevie Wonder this thing goddammit.

Oh yeah I love "Eyes Like Sparks" ... "Silent Film Star" (really Rolling Stonesy, that one) OH! And "2 Days Till Tomorrow!"

Stereo had its moments too. I bought them together. But Mono was the triumph.
