|NFC News Listen to song from upcoming deluxe edition of Bleach|
A recording of Scoff from the deluxe edition of Bleach has been released for the media - taken from the previously unreleased 1990 show at the Pine Street Theatre in Portland, OR.
Follow the links below to listen to the track or pre-order the album.
Also don't forget to check out School from the upcoming Reading 1992 DVD which is available at Amazon.
Pitchfork describes the track as an example of the band in 'startlingly vicious form':
"If you need any evidence that Nirvana were a ferocious live beast in their day, it's in this video. Kurt Cobain staggers around in a lab coat, nonchalantly letting loose those spine-tingling yowls while Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl keep their heads down and bash out the sinuous, devastating low end. A whole DVD of this promises to make for a hell of a document."
