Nirvana: Reading Festival 08-30-1992

I haven't revisited Nirvana since their box set came out in 2004, but I recently stumbled across this recording from the Reading Festival in 1992. If I remember my Nirvana lore correctly, this was the show at which Kurt Cobain was wheeled on stage in a wheelchair wearing a blond wig amid much speculation that the band was breaking up. The show itself is a beautiful disaster - in other words, it's classic live Nirvana. The set includes pre-In Utero versions of "Tourette's", "Dumb" and "All Apologies" along with b-sides "D-7" and "Spank Thru".

Awesome post matey.. fantastic set!!

Oh, and Spank Thru WAS a b-side as it was released in live format on the Sliver single a long time before the studio version appeared on Sub Pop 200.. anyhow, don't split hairs when this guy is being a total star posting this stuff!

Yes the downloading speed is a real bitch. Maybe you should switch to some other hosting service ...

The Sliver single came out a long time after Sub Pop 200. Spank Thru was the first song Nirvana released.

Anyway, this performance is getting officially released on DVD soon!

As mentioned earlier the Fluidic is available
in both variant petrol and diesel engine. This container is filled with sanitized water and
placed under the hood where it can be hooked up towards the ignition switch.

Other improvements added on the 2006 Acura RL
are the CMBS (Collision Mitigation Braking System) and ACS (Adaptive Cruise Control).
