Views Read Edit View history. Help Community portal Recent changes Upload file. Teaming up with in-demand producer Jack Endino, they blitzed ten tracks in just five hours. The tables had turned. Burnt-out after a gruelling seven-month world tour, Nirvana slumped down with Geffen Records in mid to discuss a proposed compilation comprising B-sides, outtakes, radio sessions and unreleased tracks from the Dale Demo.
With Filler and Beeswax - Nirvana - Incesticide (CD) being leaked as possible titles to the press as late as mid-November, Incesticide was compiled by Cobain whilst living in various addresses throughout the Autumn. It was released with little to no fanfare on 14 December, With the Kurt and Courtney tabloid machine edging into ever farcical territory, the frontman deliberately keep schtum about the release in the music press. Some of the stuff is kind of wild. Comprising 15 tracks from seven separate sessions, recorded across three years with five different producers, Incesticide was, in reality, much less a well-defined snapshot of the origins of Nirvana, and more a winding reel tracing the minor glories, growing pains, hero worship and remarkable multiplicity Beeswax - Nirvana - Incesticide (CD) a punk band who could veer between bubblegum-pop, sludge rock, sub-metallic Beeswax - Nirvana - Incesticide (CD) and indie rock completely at whim.
In it was rare enough for a band to release what was essentially discarded material; with IncesticideCobain offered up a tactfully-presented antiphon to the staggering success of Nevermind. Recorded with Mudhoney drummer Dan Peters, Cobain presents a masterful face-off between twee pop and fuzzed-out despair on the A-side.
More than anything else, those three Hormoaning covers — originally recorded for a John Peel session at Maida Vale in October — reveal a band who, even when honoring their indie heroes on the radio, seemed to stem from a place of unflinching authenticity.
It reveals the first un-self-conscious lunge into the light from an act who obsessively identified with the 80s underground; a world overseen by the likes of Butthole Surfers, Scratch Acid, Flipper and their friends and gurus, the Melvins.
As well as carefully compiling the tracks and their order for the release, Cobain assumed the role of de facto art director and liner notes author. The contents of the latter tell its own story. Increasingly inaccessible due to an internal tug-o-war between ambition and validity, Cobain attempted to present the case that if Nevermind was what they were capable of, Incesticide was Beeswax - Nirvana - Incesticide (CD) they truly were.
Like its draftsman in Cobain, Incesticide is endlessly compelling in it all its shapeshifting, cobbled-together discrepancy. Revealing the very DNA of a band who would never play the polished rock record game again, it shone a searchlight on the quality and depth of Nirvana as a band who navigated the full gamut of blown-out riffs, Beeswax - Nirvana - Incesticide (CD), full-on eccentricity and pure pop sensibility.
