AUD #1

The taper of Nirvana's AUD #1 also taped TAD's set, but the master tape went missing many years ago.

  • TAD played "Helot" and "Pork Chop", after that, due to his bad health condition, Tad Doyle was unable to perform any longer, so Kurt Cobain replaced him on vocals.
  • During "Ritual Device", Kurt's vocals were almost inaudible. This may be in part because the bands' soundman, Craig Montgomery, was also onstage playing guitar for this song. It is possible he also played on "Sex God Missy" and "Wood Goblins".
