LISTEN: Early Nirvana Demos Shared Online

January 9, 2018

Four rare Nirvana demo tapes have been uploaded to YouTube.

The recordings were shared by John Purkey, an old friend of Kurt Cobain’s, according to Consequence of Sound. The tapes feature early versions of tracks that would end up on Bleach and Nevermind.

On YouTube, Purkey writes that the sound quality isn't great, but it becomes clearer. Regardless, it's the first tape Cobain gave him, so the newly shared recordings are worth a listen!
