Sample text

GAAR appeared on With the Lights Out. With the Lights Out also provided an exciting opportunity to hear a Nirvana song in the process of coming together, as over the course of nine minutes you can hear “Scentless Apprentice” evolving from its opening riff into something approximating a full-fledged song at one of the band’s rehearsals. “Some songs just came out of nowhere,” says Novoselic. ’ That pretty much just came out of a jam. And then I threw in that other riff after that. ” In this first rehearsal, the main riff is pounded out and Cobain’s guitar goes off on different experimental tangents until hitting a riff that spirals upward; the two riffs lock together and provide the energetic base of the song.

Once we got rolling here, they just ran through all of it. I think it’s all pretty much one take. Then maybe later or the second day was more of the improv stuff. I think by then some people didn’t want to be there anymore and they just got out of there. ” The atmosphere was also markedly different to the October ’92 sessions, and everyone was pleased with what had been achieved. “I remember being happy with it sonically, as far as the instruments that we got on tape,” Montgomery says. “As far as the band, I think that they accomplished all that they set out to do.

The song that eventually took that title had no name when it was first recorded in Brazil, and begins with over a minute of noisy guitar feedback. But the song itself has a catchy melody, which suggests it could have been crafted into something stronger, had Cobain been interested in developing it further. “I love this one,” Montgomery admits. “I like the riff and the rhythm. It actually has different music in the verse than in the chorus, which they weren’t doing a lot anymore, but that’s not why I liked it.
