11-22-89 (Wein, Austria)
Anyone who has any interest getting into live Nirvana collecting should start with this show. Or at least this should be one of the first shows you collect (I’d always recommend 11-25-90 which is the greatest Nirvana show of all time, It has perfect sound quality and features Vendetagainst (with Tad on guitar!). Amazing we have that song in perfect quality. Kurt’s voice goes absolutely crazy with his screaming. This performance of the song has been bootlegged so many times because it’s so awesome.
The show also has a Sappy AND a homophobic crowd! Prompting Krist to go on rants!
Here is a transcript of part of the show!
Voice - “Sing about fucking girls man, sing a song about fucking girls!”
Novoselic - “Not only girls have long hair, a lot of guys have long hair too, I mean this is 1989, what fucking hole have you crawled out of?”
Voice - “Sing a song about fucking girls man!”
Novoselic - “Tell this guy about the ayatollah and give him a machine gun and he’ll fucking clear this place apart”
Voice - “come on fucking tune your guitar and sing about fucking girls man”
Novoselic - “I’d like to tell you about this next song, it’s about homosexual love, ‘cos we’re all queers man! (crowd cheers and claps) we’re all butt pirates here, we’re butthole surfers”
Voice - “Fuck you!”
Cobain - “By the way, Chris is a girl”
Novoselic - “and I’ll prove it to you right now! He’s a queer”
Cobain - “This song is about a queer”
