Unreleased Nirvana Demo Is Vicious Buzzing Noise Rock

It's easy to forget this when you primarily blast Nevermind, but Nirvana's roots are in punk music. Yeah, nobody in the 90s knew their way around a pop rock hook quite like Kurt Cobain, but this was also a guy who followed the Melvins around the Pacific Northwest for a while and once had a band called Fecal Matter before forming Nirvana. And when was the last time you listened to In Utero all the way through? That album was noisy and dark as s***. So, in deference to the recent re-release of Montage of Heck, a slew of previously unheard Nirvana demos have been released, and the latest, "E-Coli," is a vicious, buzzing slice of pure noise-punk. It takes a minute for the nearly nine-minute track to find its groove, but once it does, I started to dig it. It's Nirvana doing their best Sonic Youth impersonation, and that sounds pretty alright to me.
