Excerpt from Spin.com’s How J Mascis Almost Joined Nirvana (Twice!) and Built to Spill:

"Nirvana was playing Maxwell’s and after the show I was talking to Kurt and [Sonic Youth’s] Thurston Moore," Mascis says, referring to Nirvana’s date at the famed Hoboken, New Jersey venue on July 13, 1989. "Kurt said, ‘you should join my band.’ I think he was sick of the guy Jason [Everman] who was in the band at the time, and thought I should play guitar. I didn’t think much about it. Later, there was also talk of playing drums on a single [1990’s ‘Sliver’] they were doing, but it ended up being [Mudhoney drummer] Dan Peters.”

Something I’d learned was that you can’t drink beer and play Melvins stuff. It just isn’t going to work out. What was so great about the first Mudhoney practice was that I downed a 12-pack and was still able to play through the songs. I’m like, Oh, this is easy! Although it wasn’t as easy as I thought, because I remember at one point Mark was complaining, “How can you and Dan [Peters] not get this? It’s the simplest thing, and you both come from bands that play intricate stuff.”
