Session Information

On March 1st, 1994 Nirvana played what turned out to be their last ever show, in Munich, Germany. The band had several further European dates scheduled but according to Grohl the whole band were feeling worn out and so at the show Grohl claims Kurt wrecked his voice on purpose so they would have to cancel the remaining shows, and the band could return home.

Dave initially stayed in Germany to film a promo video for the Backbeat Band but then when it became clear the tour would not be quickly rescheduled he flew home to Seattle.

To take his mind off the events in Europe Dave headed once more to his friend Barrett Jones' studio to record more songs. Two were put to tape during this session on March 9th, another version of 'Big Me' and a new track, 'Mountain Of You'. In 2004 a recording of the track, among others, was shared online by a Foo Fighters fan, albeit with the slightly erroneous title ‘Mountain View’. Dave Grohl himself went online to correct the mistake, ending an unrelated message on the bands official message board with the postscript “it's ‘Mountain of You’, and it's old as fuck.”

The recording of ‘Big Me’ from this session saw official release in 2015 on the special Record Store Day release ‘Songs From The Laundry Room’, whilst the generated cassette recording posted online remains the only release of ‘Mountain Of You’.
