Length / Sound Quality:
46 min / 8.0
Notes:
Includes "Downer" from the soundcheck, which cuts in.
It remains uncertain if any more songs were played/recorded after the last song "Hairspray Queen" on the surfaced version - at around 46 minutes this could be the point of the tape flip.
Does not include "Sex Bomb".
In September 2015 a lossless version of this source was circulated, replacing the old MP3 sourced version.

It is not known if there are other sources.

  • Multiple friends of the band have all stated the band only played at "17 Nussbaum Road" once.
  • The show took place on a Saturday night.
  • The band borrowed the house owner's drum kit for the show.
  • Tony Poukkula played second guitar on Led Zeppelin's "Heartbreaker" and "How Many More Times."
  • Before "Heartbreaker" (jam) Krist start to play some chords of "How Many More Times" ans says "...This song's a soundcheck song", probably they played it during the soundcheck as always.
  • More songs may have been played.
  • Kurt reported that the band played Flipper's "Sex Bomb" for 30 to 60 minutes.
  • The audio recording and photographs were thought to be from the their first show in 1987, but after close investigation it doesn't appear to be the case; song structures, lyrics and playing are much more refined than on the 05/06/87 KAOS recording.
  • According to early flyers hanging on Kurt's wall, his guitar was full of stickers, at least, between September 1986 to April 1987.
  • There are stickers on Kurt's guitar that aren't on earlier performance photos.
  • Kurt and Krist's hair length is longer than 05/01/87 and closer in length to 08/09/87.
