Lanegan on Nirvana Box
Gutter Twin and frequent Twilight Singers collaborator Mark Lanegan makes an appearance on the upcoming Nirvana box set.
Included are three Leadbelly covers recorded in August 1989 at Seattle’s Reciprocal Studios, with assistance from Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan and then-Trees drummer Mark Pickerel. Cobain had designs on forming a group around these players, to be named Jury or Lithium, but it never materialized.
“When Lanegan was in the studio recording the [1990 album] “The Winding Sheet,” he was working with so many people,” Sub Pop general manager Megan Jasper tells Bilboard.com. “Kurt plays some music on that record. There were just people randomly coming into the studio. As musicians do, they’d end up goofing around and doing their own thing. In those sessions came those ‘Jury’ tracks, which have never been released. We’ve been sitting on those for a long, long time.”
