Footage surfaces of Nirvana playing Radio Shack in 1988

Posted by on July 6, 2017

Time are changing quickly, and if there’s two things that aren’t quite what they were in 1998, they’re Nirvana and Radio Shack. History was made on January 23, 1988, when Nirvana recorded their first demo tape. At that time, they were unknown, and no one would have predicted their success. The following day, the group filmed a video at RadioShack in Aberdeen Washington.

Clips have surfaced over the years, but now the never-before-seen footage is now available thanks to video archivist and SPIN tipster Mike Ziegler who shared the full 17-minute recording. The footage shows drummer Dale Crover (the Melvins) as the only member playing live while Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic are syncing with the demo recordings from the day before, as their instruments are unplugged.

Check out the footage below:


Unedited footage from Nirvana’s 1993 video interviews with Cobain, Novoselic, and Dave Grohl has also surfaced, courtesy of Ziegler. These interviews were filmed on December 13, 1993, the same day as their legendary Live and Loud concert.
