Old



Here is an old piece, it was covered by Kurt Cobain I believe.
Also, today I learned that the drummer in 'Apostrophe' which I posted yesterday is now in prison :(

  1. Excellent Leadbelly! Kurt sang it when Nirvana was on MTV unplugged, Shortly before his death. It's a great song.

  3. Y'know, despite having listened to Nirvana's cover hundreds of times, I've never actually looked up the original. Now I know. Brings a whole new level of respect for Cobains arrangement of it.

    Also, I wonder if the twelve string pictured was used on this recording...Seems sort of counter-intuitive when you consider the recording technology back then.

    Huge thanks for the post.

  12. There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    Is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.

    Single Swingle
