Nirvana’s Original NYC Music Video for “In Bloom” [Video]

Posted on: September 23rd, 2011 at 11:12 am by

Tomorrow, September 24 marks the twentieth anniversary of Nevermind, Nirvana’s seminal second record.  Herewith, another little flashback.

Yesterday, we took a stroll down memory lane with some better-quality footage from Nirvana’s first New York City appearance at the Pyramid Club.  In honor of twenty years since the release of Nevermind, we present the original NYC version of the music video for “In Bloom,” shot by the band nine months after that first trip (April 1990). The song itself had been recorded by Butch Vig (drummer in Garbage) shortly beforehand, and would later appear on their major label breakthrough. In fact, it was reportedly the first put to tape during those sessions.

Note this alternate version of “In Bloom” features drummer Chad Channing, who was later replaced with Foo man Dave Grohl.  City cameos include the East River promenade, South Street Seaport, and random Wall Street shots.
