Between the recent Courtney Love-Dave Grohl-Frances Bean Cobainfeud and former Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson's claim on "an album worth of demos" recorded by Kurt right before his death we've got yet another Nirvana-related story, less scandalous this time.
Recently, Hole documentary Hit So Hard: The Life And Near Death Story Of Patty Schemel directed by P. David Ebersole has been made available for download/rent via iTunes. Although focusing mainly on the life of former Hole drummer and her self-destructive streak, the movie contained what many grunge fans would consider to be a music sensation a footage of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love singing/playing an unreleased song "Stinking Of You".
It is also interspersed with footage of the famous grunge couple spending time with their daughter Frances Bean Cobain at home, while fellow band members Patty Schemel and Pat Smear can also be seen hanging out near.
Despite the fact that the song sounds like a dozen of other Kurt's demos, it is still surprising how many things we're yet to discover about him. Maybe this actually proves Erlandson's allegations on solo direction Nirvana leader was heading?
According to Hole guitarist and a close friend of Kurt, "he [Cobain] was headed in a direction that was really cool. It would have been his 'White Album'. That's really what he was going towards, a solo album but working with different people."
Maybe this song could become another "Heart-Shaped Box" if properly recorded. Who knows? Anyways, it's nice to see Kurt Cobain in one of those quiet and peaceful moments of his turbulent life, having his time with the wife, daughter and close friends.
A video of "Stinking of You" is available below.
