Kurt Cobain: l’audio del mixtape inedito

James Brown, Geaorge Michael, il canto degli uccelli, Fred Flinstone, Jimi Hendrix che parla, pianti di bambini, questi sono solo alcuni degli elementi che compaiono nel mixtape diffuso in questi giorni dal sito Dangerous Mind.

Si tratta infatti di una playlist appartenente a Kurt Cobain del 1988, l’anno che precede il debutto dei Nirvana con “Bleach”. Per chi volesse sapere cosa il mitico Kurt ascoltasse prima di diventare la star dei Nirvana, questa playlist potrebbe essere la risposta.


Un mix di suoni, canzoni, rumori, spesso confusi e indecifrabili, ma comunque piena di pezzi noti, come “The Sounds of Silence” di Simon & Garfunkel, “A Day In The Life” dei Beatles, “Eruption” dei Van Halen.

Ecco l’audio della playlist chiamata Montage of heck
