The compilation that started it all off! Notable due to Nirvana's inclusion, but other independent bands and those obscure from the mainstream feature, both from the US and elsewhere. The concept started out as an Australian only tribute project organized by Waterfront Records, who distributed records for many of the Australian Punk bands who'd record for the album. Waterfront distributed US indie label C/Z's band's releases in OZ, and vice-versa, so C/Z licensed the concept and added US acts to make the album a more international project. Interestingly, Nirvana's recording is their only studio recording with Jason Everman, as second guitarist, and Chad Channing on drums. It was recorded at Evergreen State College in the spring of 1989. In 1993 when KISS were planning "KISS My Ass", Gene threatened a "Cease & Desist" for the copyright violations, notably on the cover, of the original version. C/Z hastily reissued the album with the second cover, and a note on the inside that pleaded, "love ya Gene, baby, please don't sue us"! The album was originally offered to Seattle label Sub Pop to distribute, but they passed on it. Has been reissued on a couple of occasions, so the album sleeves can vary (Single sleeve versus gatefold). Click on covers for large scans. * were first issue CD bonus tracks.
