'sounded just like the Beatles White Album...' Kurt Cobain was working on solo album just before suicide

Kurt Cobain was working on solo album just before suicideKurt Cobain was always a big Beatles fan. You could hear it through his music and arguably Nirvana were  cranked up late eighties update on the Beatles. It’s where those melodies and minor chords come from and it was something that LTW boss John Robb spotted in his review of the band’s Love Buzz single for Sounds when he made it single of the week in 1988 – the band’s first piece of UK press. Robb also spoke to Cobain about the Beatles in depth when he interviewed him six months later in New York – a 60 minute in depth interview that has only recently being rediscovered and we will release at some point.

When making Montage Of heck brett Morgan found a whole treasure trove of undiscovered Cobain material of which the cover of the Paul McCartney early Beatles song And I Love Her was one of them.

Rumours of the release appeared on the Vinyl Collective message board where a  pre-order link for the cover was posted with solo Kurt song ‘Sappy’ on the b side.

An official Montage of Heck album is due for release in November on the same day the film comes out on DVD. The vinyl 7″ is slated for release two weeks later, on November 20th and there is also a mooted
untitled LP in the works which has been called a Cobain ‘solo album’ which will feature unheard music from the piles of cassettes which
Morgen had access to when curating the album. Morgen previously told US publication Bedford + Bowery: “Just to be clear, it’s not a Nirvana album, it’s just Kurt and you’re going to hear him do things you never expected to come out of him  from thrash to ragtime and everything in between and a sketch comedy routine”.
