A small show by the seaside - it reminded me of The Who being in Brighton looking out over the sea, “Nothing is planned by the sea and the sand”. It made me want to go and play Quadrophenia. The Foo Fighters playing as The Holy Shits. It was hot and I mean steam room Bikram hot. Pat Smear and I shared his bottle of champagne which he handed me in between songs. The Foos played for more than two hours just like The Who. I drove home soaking wet…

PS Great show!

I was talking to Courtney Love one time, and she told me that one of Kurt’s favorite records was [Mötley Crüe’s] ‘Too Fast for Love.’

So I associate [‘Rape Me’] with the disappointment—and then having to hear it over and over again, and slowly accepting that I hated it. Because you’re not allowed to dislike Nirvana. You’re allowed to dislike the Foo Fighters, but you’re not allowed to dislike Nirvana. Even if the song is bad. And I think if it were a Soundgarden song, people would just not like ‘Rape Me.’

No Seattle highlights lesser-known Northwest rock acts

The compilation features 23 different bands, largely unknown today but featuring a fair number of familiar names in the lineups. The Ones featured Jack Endino on bass, before Endino became Sub Pop’s go-to producer for the burgeoning Seattle music scene. When Bundle of Hiss went their separate ways, drummer Dan Peters joined (and still plays with) Mudhoney, while bassist Kurt Danielson took up with the heavyweight TAD. And after her tenure in Kill Sybil, drummer Patty Schemel became the drummer for Hole.
