Friend of Kurt Cobain Shares Rare Nirvana Demo Tapes From the '80s”

According to Purkey, one of the original tapes (which there was a backup recording of) was stolen from a friends auto and a monsoon once nearly destroyed the collection.

Recently Tacoma, WA musician John Purkey posted more never before heard demos of Nirvana in their early days from cassette tapes that were given to him by Kurt Cobain himself.

In December 2017, a previously unreleased recording of a Nirvana acoustic gig from 1991 was discovered and shared online.

Others feature Nevermind demos recorded with Chad Channing, the short-lived replacement for Crover who was replaced by Dave Grohl during the album's inception.

In the first video, Purkey describes the tape that he was given was Nirvana's first recording session at Reciprocal Studios with Dale Crover of The Melvins that soon leads into the material from Montage of Heck.

In an accompanying video, Purkey claims that he developed a close relationship with Nirvana after watching them develop in Washington. As Purkey explains in an additional video regarding the tapes' background, he has taken great care to preserve these rare Nirvana relics over the years, stashing them hidden in a metal box, inside a second metal box. One of the cassettes was stolen out of a friend's auto.
