KEXP Seattle Tour, Soundgarden Records With Original DJ Notes
As part of the KEXP radio station tour in Seattle, the Nirvana "Nevermind" and "Deep Six" records are shown, with taped on notes from the DJs. The DJs regularly added little notes on the records that were meant to serve as material to intro the music, leave mini reviews, or have mini conversations between the KEXP team.
Meghan snuck off during the tour and found Soundgarden's Ultramega OK and Screaming Life records, that also featured these original notes
"Well...it's here. Ultramega drum sound. Chris is singin' though @ times it's buried among the instrumentation. You'll be groovin' !"
"You'll be groovin INDEED. I cannot believe how incredibly good this is. Even Hiro's vocals on "Circle of Power" sound okay. Heavy, Happy, & Happening"
"ROCKS ! I remember when I discovered rocking' fuckin' guitars...
I know, and I still remember when I discovered"
"Oh Man - This sounds so much more like their live stuff than what Sub Pop released. What will A&M do with this ?"
"Heavy fucking shit ! Play this loud or don't this is gonna sell so many copies. Don't hate 'em when it does, okay (unless you already did)."
"Production doesn't really capture their colossal sound on some tracks. Love smokestack tho"
"More heavy than the Melvins. Rocks raw
NOTHING IS AS HEAVY AS THE MELVINS SORRY. 1 TO 5, WITH THE MELVINS BEING 5, THIS RATES 3 1/2 AT BEST"
"Love the Lennon cover"
"Wow !! heavy stuff here. Let me die in my own pool of sweat ! I heard this was originally going to be called "Screaming Trees" but there were already 2 bands using that name, so they kept the Screaming + chose to name the record after another local band, The Life. But really, Tears To Forget screams big time"
"Nothing like young men screamin' their durn fool heads off"
"Seattle ! Live it ! This quakes and I gyrate to it"
"So just exactly what is "Entering" about ??"
"Rocks too hard. So unbelievably cool"
"(covered). I really dislike this grunge cum-metal noise thrash. Time to move it down. "Hand of God" segues nicely into "Little Lighthouse" on the dukes of stratosphere LP, however"
"I'd like 'em better if they had The Silver Surfer on their guitars."
"But that would elevate them to God status and I couldn't stand that.
