In September 2008 a new fresh transfer of the 1st generation tape was circulated.
The tape has some occasional static, probably from a loose microphone connection and the right channel audio is absent during the beginnings of "Aneurysm" and "Something In The Way".
The tape also has two dropouts in "Aneurysm".
The intro noise cuts in, "Stain" cuts out and "Something In The Way" cuts in due to a tape flip.

Amateur video, shot from the right-hand side of the balcony.

PRO #1 incomplete

Lowest Generation:
BETA(M) > VHS(1) > MKV
Length / Sound Quality:
21 min / 9.0
A VHS(1) upgrade was circulated September 23rd 2018.
Shot by MusiquePlus with a single camera and open mic audio.
Shot partially from the front of the stage and partially from the back of the venue.
The sound is somewhat fuzzy, most probably due to filming so close to the stage.
Features cut versions of "Aneurysm", "Drain You", "Been A Son", "Stain", "Something In The Way", "Endless Nameless", "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "School" and "Sliver".
Has cuts in all songs except "Sliver".
This is all the footage that was recorded and is sourced from a pre-broadcast tape leaked from the station.
Clips of "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Sliver", "Aneurysm" and "School" have been broadcast on MusiMax.

PRO CLIP #1 incomplete

Lowest Generation:
BETA(M) > TV > VHS(1) > DVDR
Length / Sound Quality:
2 min / 9.0
Feature a cut version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" only, broadcast on MusiquePlus with better sound quality than on PRO #1: it seems that the station perhaps cleaned up the sound for broadcast.

It is not known if there are other sources.

  • Before "Scoff," a little bit of "The End" by The Doors was jammed on.
  • The beginning of "Negative Creep" was played very softly with Kurt singing in a falsetto voice.
