Record Store Day is rapidly approaching (April 16th) and the list of available vinyl is looking pretty expansive. One of the coolest offerings so far is a re-release of Nirvana’s Hormoaning EP, which was previously only released in Australia.
The EP was originally sold on the band’s 1992 Australian tour and featured two original tracks plus covers of numbers by Devo, The Vaselines and The Wipers (the two original tracks were “Aneurysm” and “Even In His Youth”). The songs were all recorded during a session with John Peel on BBC Radio 1. Four of the tracks previously appeared on the band’s 1992 b-side album, Incesticide, which has since gone platinum.
Like all the Record Store Day releases, the album will be limited edition and only 6,000 copies will be available. The album’s original run was limited to 15,000 copies in Australia and has since been considered a rarity. Go here to watch Nirvana perform “Aneurysm” live.
