Kurt Cobain first approached Krist Novoselic (later the bassist and co-founder of Nirvana) about starting a band when they both attended the same high school in Washington. Kurt gave Krist a demo titled Illiteracy will prevail from his project Fecal Matter in an attempt to convince Krist to form a band with him. This is one of the songs from the demo
The grungy sound that Nirvana is usually hailed as the creators of is present here in an even more raw and gritty form. It is surprising that it took Krist three years to finally agree to form a band with Kurt!
