November 20th will see the enhanced DVD release of Nirvana’s famed MTV Unplugged performance, unedited and in its entirety, complete with previously un-aired footage (“Something In The Way” and “Oh, Me”). While Nirvana’s cover of the Meat Puppets “Oh, Me” was available on the accompanying soundtrack, the visual performance, and rehearsal outtakes, are sure to lure buyer’s holiday dollars.
As we have mentioned previously, it was this performance that turned us on to both the music of The Vaselines as well as the Meat Puppets. If you have yet to explore this seminal post-punk band from the Arizona desert – it is time to get on board. The below three tracks can be found on Meat Puppetts II (which itself has been reissued with bonus tracks), and were all covered by Cobain and company on Unplugged.
