Ahead of the 20 year anniversary re-release of Nirvana’s seminal sophomore album, a rare live video of the band performing Breed at Seattle’s Paramount theatre has been released.
Taken during the Halloween show in 1991, the video is one of 19 songs recorded and converted from 16mm film to glorious HD for the deluxe version of the Nevermind release.
It has been two decades since Kurt, Krist and Dave emerged from the underground and hit the mainstream squarely in the gonads with thier unique mix melodic pop and fierce punk.
Grunge was born and ever since Nirvana have embodied Teen Spirit. To commemorate the release a brand new website has been launched – www.nevermind20.com.
Fans can share their thoughts, post pictures and artwork. A number of musician fans of the band and album including Alex Turner, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Corin Tucker of Sleater-Kinney, Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam have left their own messages on the website.
The site also features a timeline that tells the story behind Nevermind, complete with photos and videos.
The multi-format reissues of Nirvana’s Nevermind are scheduled for release on Monday 26th September via Universal Music Enterprises featuring dozens of rare and previously unreleased performances.
