      NEVER BEFORE RELEASED RECORDINGS FROM NIRVANA
      HEARD ON 3-CD/1-DVD BOX SET WITH THE LIGHTS OUT

      Geffen/UME is set to release the much-anticipated 3-CD/1-DVD box set
      With The Lights Out on November 23, 2004. The box set contains 81
      tracks, 68 which were previously unreleased.
      The box set spans Nirvana's entire career, from a recording of Led
      Zeppelin's "Heartbreaker" at the band's first show in 1987 to solo
      acoustic performances from singer-guitarist Kurt Cobain in 1994. With
      The Lights Out features a 60-page color booklet with rare photos and
      liner notes by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and writer Neil Strauss.
      The three CDs, arranged largely chronologically contains home and
      rehearsal demos, including for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (whose lyric
      "With the lights out" provides the set's title), "Rape Me," "Heart
      Shaped Box" and a trio penned by legendary bluesman Leadbelly.
      Heard in the 12 previously unreleased solo acoustic tracks are such gems
      as "All Apologies," "Lithium" and "Sliver." Six previously unreleased
      radio performances range from "Anorexorcist" in 1987 to "Dumb" in 1991
      (two years before it was on 1993's In Utero). Along with the remaining
      debuts are a handful of earlier issued, though rare, b-sides and demos
      as well as the original Butch Vig mix of "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
      Highlighted on the With The Lights Out DVD is a previously unreleased
      video of nine songs performed in 1988 at bassist Krist Novoselic's
      mother's house in Aberdeen, Washington; the rare "In Bloom" Sub Pop
      music video, and 10 never-before-seen live performances. Noteworthy
      among them are debut renditions of "Pennyroyal Tea", "Smells Like Teen
      Spirit" both from early 1991. Also premiering is an unlikely performance
      of Jacques Brel and Rod McKuen's "Seasons In The Sun" shot at a Rio de
      Janeiro studio.
      Nirvana debuted on album with 1989's Bleach (years later going
      platinum), followed by the EP Blew, each on Seattle-based Sub Pop.
      Drummer Dave Grohl joined in fall 1990 and soon after the band signed to
      Geffen Records. Nevermind (1991), propelled by the platinum Top 10
      anthem "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and its landmark music video, hit #1
      and is now 10 times platinum. Up next were the Top 40, platinum
      Incesticide (1992) and the #1, quintuple platinum In Utero (1993). In
      April 1994, Cobain committed suicide. Issued posthumously have been
      1994's MTV Unplugged In New York (#1, quintuple platinum), 1996's live
      compilation From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah (#1, platinum) and
      2002's "best of" Nirvana (#3, platinum).
