Session Information

At some point during his post Nirvana career Dave Grohl headed to Inner Ear Studio in Arlington, Virginia, to work on some more of his own new songs. Rather than going alone he also invited his sister Lisa, just as he’d done in April 1992 when recording as part of the Allister Lob group. On this occasion there wasn’t a third member to play guitar, just the two Grohl siblings, with Lisa playing bass and Dave recording everything else.

Four songs were worked on an Inner Ear by the duo in a session which owner Don Zientara described as a relaxed, fun time. It’s unclear exactly when this session took place, Zientara unable to locate his notes for the session, but he did remember Dave talking to him about his future plans, including the Foo Fighters name, which almost certainly places the session in 1994.

Dave and his sister worked efficiently completing four songs over the course of a single day. The first of those was another version of ‘Weenie Beenie’, a track he’d first recorded alone in April 1993. The three other tracks were given the titles ‘Alex’s Pizza’, ‘We’re At Home’ and ‘Song #6’. Whilst Weenie Beenie was the name of a fast food restaurant just a block away from the studio Zientara wasn’t familiar with any Pizza establishments owned by Alex, unsure of where that title came from.

It’s possible the other three songs were later recorded under a different, well-known title but as Dave Grohl left with the 2-inch master tapes, and with Zientara currently unable to listen to his copy, it’s unknown as to what those three songs sound like.
