Il sito Dangerous Minds ha recentemente scovato una cassetta con registrazioni messe insieme da Kurt Cobain dei NIRVANA un anno prima dell’uscita di “Bleach”. La cassetta è un collage di rumori, suoni e pezzetti estratti dalla collezione di Cobain, radio e altri parti. Nei 15 minuti di registrazione, soprannominata “Montage of Heck”, si possono sentire pezzi di canzoni come “ABC” dei THE JACKSON FIVE, “Hot Pants” di James Brown, Jimi Hendrix che parla al Monterey Pop Festival e addirittura Fred Flintstone che grida dietro alla sua palla da bowling.

Questo “mixtape” di Kurt Cobain è stato fatto con un registratore di cassette a 4 tracce e pensare che non aveva neanche accesso a Youtube e Spotify a quel tempo. Potete ascoltare la cassetta qui sopra.
