Hear An Early, Unheard Version Of Nirvana’s Scentless Apprentice

Listen to Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic jam the In Utero track in 1992.

Texan drummer Rey Washam – who has worked with the likes of Scratch Acid, Ministry, Tad and Butthole Surfers, among many, many others – has shared a 1992 demo featuring Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.

The clip was recorded during a two-hour jam session while the pair were in Nirvana, and includes a pretty sweet demo of In Utero track Scentless Apprentice.

Tape of Dave jamming on guitar with Krist and Rey pre Foo Fighters,” writes Rey in the description of the video. “1992 At the Nirvana rehearsal studio. Dave was obviously new to guitar, but had some songs he wanted to try out with a band. I had just quit playing in Tad and Dave asked me to come over and “jam”. I had never met Dave or Kurt and Krist even though I had heard Kurt was a fan of a band I used to be in, Scratch Acid. The jam was very low-key, but I had to play Dave’s drums the way he had them set up for himself. Krist showed up and fun was had by all. This is only a portion of a two hour jam session. Later that night we went to go see Guns N’ Roses at the Kingdome? Dave got me into the show and a little trouble started. Maybe a few too many egos in the place. I think the tape speaks for itself. Dave made the right decision to have Taylor play drums in Foo Fighters and not me. He never asked me to play with him again after that night. I still think he’s a good guy.”
