Our Review

Recorded at random shows between December 1989 and January 1994, Wishkah captures the live firepower of this great Northwestern grunge band with all the raw emotion, bleeding guitar chords, and relentless, pummeling rhythms in place. Compiled by the surviving members after singer Kurt Cobain’s tragic suicide, Wishkah is very much alive with sonic blasts of incredible punk, pop and industrial power. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was the obvious anthem that no one could resist, but there are so many rewarding moments captured here, from the quick, desperate blast of “Sliver” to the Black Sabbath-inspired chording of “School” to the pleading underscoring the delicate emotions of “Polly.” In the end, however, it is Cobain’s parched voice, his inner frustrations executed so brilliantly that lead the group. “Negative Creep” is the sound of inner self-loathing taken to the extreme. “Drain You” takes its pop roots and turns darker. “Heart-Shaped Box” retains its foreboding power. “Scentless Apprentice,” “Tourette’s,” and “Milk It” expose the band’s uncompromisingly abrasive side. There’s no denying this band’s commitment to its material.

Customer Reviews

Excellent, moving moments. (5 stars)

This is Nirvana fully electrified and punk, blasting our ears with sound in a pleasurable manner. "Tourette's," "Milk It," and "Sliver" are particularly good. It's more for people who enjoy the high-energy side of Nirvana; if you want sensitive, buy "MTV Unplugged in New York." This is nonetheless a standout work, even as it is pieced together from various shows. Put it on in your car, put the wind

A must for any true fan (5 stars)

Of Nirvana’s two officially released live albums, this one is the best in terms of concept and execution. While most reviewers and casual listeners appreciate and laud the melodic structure of “MTV Unplugged,” that album was mostly a lark (but still good homage to their punk heritage, see my review) that turned into the very thing that the band wanted to avoid – their enshrinement as a vacuous rock and roll band. It is fitting then t

Nirvana (5 stars)

Nirvana is a great band and they have a huge fan base. If you like rock then youll like this and it is a great album.


Biography

Formed: 1987 in Aberdeen, WA
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '80s, '90s

Prior to Nirvana, alternative music was consigned to specialty sections of record stores, and major labels considered it to be, at the very most, a tax write-off. After the band's second album, 1991's Nevermind, nothing was ever quite the same, for better and for worse. Nirvana popularized punk, post-punk, and indie rock, unintentionally bringing it into the American mainstream like no other band to date. While their sound was equal parts Black Sabbath (as learned by fellow Washington underground…
